To be invited to join Phi Theta Kappa, students must have a grade point average of 3.65 out of a possible 4.0. They may be full-time students or part-time students who have completed at least 24 credit hours of study. An essay or interview is part of the selection process for inductees. Leadership skills and service to the community are among the goals of the Phi Theta Kappa experience; Omicron Gamma members have organized projects to support a number of charitable and civic organizations in the area.
