Eligibility

Students are eligible for Phi Kappa Phi in any of the three following categories.  All majors are eligible.

Graduate Students - All students who have completed 18 hours and are in the top 10% of their class.  At Texas State, for almost all majors this means students must have a 4.0 GPA.

Seniors - All undergraduate students who have completed at least 90 hours and are in the top 10% of their class.  Students must have completed 24 hours at Texas State. The GPA to stay in the top 10% is not constant and is calculated each semester by college.  The minimum overall GPA for the Spring 2014 invitation list is given below.

  • 3.52 - College of Applied Arts
  • 3.54 - McCoy College of Business Administration
  • 3.61 - College of Education
  • 3.64 - College of Fine Arts and Communication
  • 3.73 - College of Health Professions

  • 3.11 - University College

Juniors - All undergraduate students who have completed at least 72 hours and are in the top 7.5% of their class.  Students must have completed 24 hours at Texas State. The GPA to stay in the top 7.5% is not constant and is calculated each semester by college.  Values are similar to those for seniors given above.
