• Initiates

    If you received a letter of acceptance from the local Phi Beta Kappa Chapter at Hamline University, congratulations on your election to Phi Beta Kappa, the nation's oldest and most prestigious academic honors organization.

    As stated in your acceptance letter, you need to register with the National Office of Phi Beta Kappa, including paying the fee of $85. (Please note that this is a one time fee and that there are no yearly dues; you are a member of Phi Beta Kappa for life.) Visit the National Office site to apply for membership. 

    Click here for registration instructions. You must register and pay the fee before you can be formally initiated. Do not do this until you have received an acceptance letter.

    The initiation ceremony will take place virtually on Thursday, April 22, 2021, with information to come.
