Honors and Professional Societies

Phi Kappa Phi

The primary objective of the national honor society of Phi Kappa Phi is to recognize and encourage superior scholarship in all academic disciplines. Phi Kappa Phi is an honor society, not an honorary society or fraternity. Membership is earned by meeting criteria established by the national organization. Undergraduate students may be considered for election to Phi Kappa Phi if they have senior status, have a minimum of 24 graded semester hours at Arcadia University, and are in the upper 10 percent of their class, or if they are in their junior year and are scholastically in the upper 7.5 percent of their class.
