Phi Theta Kappa is the international honor society for community colleges. Alpha Eta Delta, the South Mountain Community College chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, was chartered in 1982. It has earned distinction among the 1,100 chapters around the world.

Phi Theta Kappa involves students in many different leadership development opportunities, service projects and social activities. Phi Theta Kappa members travel to conferences, Honors seminars and conventions across the state, region and nation. They work on campus as Student Success Coaches and guides, and work on community volunteer projects.

Many transfer scholarships are available exclusively to Phi Theta Kappa members. Applications for the fall ALL-USA competition and the prestigious Guistewhite Scholarship are available through the Honors Office.

Membership is extended by invitation to all students who complete 12 credits at SMCC with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher.
