Founded in 1776, Phi Beta Kappa is the nation’s oldest academic honor society, inviting into membership outstanding seniors who have attained a liberal arts education with demonstrated breadth and depth. Only 280 colleges or universities shelter a Phi Beta Kappa chapter.

New student members of Phi Beta Kappa are accomplished students (minimum 3.7 GPA) with advanced standing and are elected by faculty and university staff who themselves are members.  Elections at UIC occur once a year, usually during the week of spring break.

For more information about becoming a member at UIC, contact your academic advisor, the chapter secretary or the chapter president.
