Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is the leading international honor society for two-year colleges. PVCC's chapter is officially named Alpha Epsilon Tau. Membership in PTK provides access to scholarships, conventions and seminars. At the PVCC graduation ceremony, PTK members wear a gold satin stole and gold and blue cording over their graduation gown and a yellow tassel on their graduation cap. Their diplomas have a distinctive, embossed gold seal indicating membership in the Phi Theta Kappa Society.
An integral component of PVCC's PTK chapter is community service through participation in toy and food drives, charity walks, assistance to local and national victims of natural disasters, landscape maintenance of PVCC's campus and many other service initiatives.
