Today, PTK is the largest honor society in America in higher education with more than 1.3 million members and 1,200 chapters located in 50 United Sates, U.S. territories, Canada and Germany. In 1929, the American Association of Community Colleges recognized Phi Theta Kappa as the official honor society for two-year colleges. It is estimated that 200,000 students participate in the PTK program each year. Annually, more than 90,000 students are invited to PTK.

Membership is by invitation only and after a student has completed a minimum of 12 credit hours of associate degree course work and earned a grade point average of 3.5 or higher. Students must maintain a high academic standing throughout their enrollment in the two-year college, generally a 3.25 GPA. The average age of a new member is 29, ranging from 18-80.
