In our first year (2013-2014), the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi at Texas State has been designated as a Chapter of Merit. Thanks to all our hard work by our team of officers and the support of our university administration.
Watch this space for our first meetings of the 2014-2015 academic year.
The officers of Phi Kappa Phi for 2014-2015 are
President: Dr. Heather Galloway
Vice President: Dr. Cathy Jaffe
Treasurer: Dr. Daniel Brown

Scholarship and Fellowship Officer: Prof. John Hood
Student Vice-President: Alex Hodge-Ratliff

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.
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.
If you believe you meet these requirements, but have not received an invitation to join, please email email@example.com.
The chapter dues for faculty and staff who are already members can be paid by using the form found here. Chapter dues are $20 annually.
The bylaws of the Texas State chapter will be available soon.
