Dozens of dedicated Sussex County Community College students were recently inducted into the world’s largest honor society for community colleges at a special ceremony on campus.
Phi Theta Kappa International is the honor society for two-year colleges and includes members from throughout the country and beyond. Inductees earned their status through their exceptional scholastic work. These elite students represent the College’s finest.
To become a part of Phi Theta Kappa, students must be enrolled in an accredited associates degree program and have a GPA of 3.5 or higher. Students are then eligible to apply for transfer scholarships offered by over 600 four-year colleges and universities located throughout the U.S.
“Our students have worked hard to earn their spots in this prestigious honor society,” said Scott Scardena, Transfer Counselor and PTK Advisor at SCCC. “Their dedication to their education made them perfect candidates and we are proud to be able to add these students to the Phi Theta Kappa elite.”
