Are you interested in becoming a Phi Beta Kappa member?

Eligible students are invited to join the the Alpha of California Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. Upon invitation, the student will receive instructions on how to become a member. Invitations are sent via email during spring (February/March) and summer (June\July).  E-mail invitations are usually sent to the email address you have provided to the university.

If you believe you are eligible but have not received an invitation, please submit your transcripts for review. More details may be found here: Eligibility Criteria

Once you have received a letter of invitation to join Phi Beta Kappa, please follow the instructions to register as a member. If you receive an invitation but do not join, you are not a member.

Please note:  Upon invitation to join Phi Beta Kappa, there is a one-time fee that covers lifetime membership in the local chapter and the national Phi Beta Kappa organization. The chapter has a small fund to aid invitees for whom the initiation fee would be a significant financial hardship. Contact the office for more information.
