About Membership


The UW-Green Bay Chapter of Phi Kappa Phi normally initiates new members twice a year, in late fall and in early spring. Membership is by invitation only.

Potential new student members are
  • Juniors who have completed at least 72 credit hours, with at least 24 semester hours at UW-Green Bay, and rank in the top 7.5 percent of their class.
  • Seniors who have completed at least 90 credit hours, with at least 24 semester hours at UW-Green Bay, and rank in the top 10 percent of their class.
  • Graduate students who have completed at least 18 graduate hours or the equivalent at UW-Green Bay, and rank in the top 10 percent of their class.
Students invited to join must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.5. For most majors the top 10% of students usually have grade point averages of 3.7 and higher. Faculty review the list of nominees since not only grade point average determines membership but also character and integrity.

In addition to students, faculty, staff, and members of the Green Bay community who embody the motto "Let the Love of Learning Rule Humanity" can be nominated by current members to join. If you are a member of the faculty, staff or Green Bay community interested in joining Phi Kappa Phi, please contact us at phikappaphi@uwgb.edu.
