Membership FAQ


Who can become a member and how?

Membership in the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi is earned. Admission is by invitation and requires nomination and approval by a chapter. The governing bylaws of the Society set extremely high standards for membership. See detailed information about eligibility requirements here.

I currently meet the criteria for membership but have not received an invitation. Whom do I contact?

You may contact a chapter officer at your college or university. See the Chapter Directory for a listing of chapter officers on your campus.

How many members does Phi Kappa Phi have?

Since its founding in 1897, Phi Kappa Phi has initiated more than 1.5 million members. Each year, approximately 30,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni are initiated. Currently there are approximately 100,000 active members.

How much does it cost to be a member?

As a new Phi Kappa Phi member, the candidate will pay certain national and chapter fees. The national portion, which starts at $65, pays for your pin, a certificate, and one year of national dues. Chapter fees, which vary, cover the cost of the banquet or reception and local dues.

The annual membership renewal fee is $35 and is required for you to be an active member and receive the full benefits of membership for one year. Discounted rates are available if you opt to renew for multiple years.

Please note that one of the national dues options is required to be an active member and receive the full benefits of membership for the selected time period. By electing to pay chapter dues, you can help your chapter fund local awards and host area activities. See a full explanation of dues here.
