The Phi Beta Kappa Society  , founded in 1776, recognizes the highest level of scholarship and is the most prestigious and oldest academic national honors society in the United States. Approximately 5% of the UCLA senior class is elected annually to Phi Beta Kappa. Visit the UCLA Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa   web site for information regarding the chapter.

MEMBERSHIP

Students do not apply for membership in the Phi Beta Kappa Society. The Council of the UCLA Chapter, comprised of distinguished faculty and senior administrative officers, evaluate all student transcripts that meet the academic criteria, and then choose the students to elect to Phi Beta Kappa.

Students who are elected to Phi Beta Kappa will be sent a MyUCLA notification. Students who accept election are invited to participate in the annual Initiation Ceremony.

For those students (Junior elects, School of Nursing, and School of the Arts & Architecture), who do not have access to the MyUCLA Student Commencement feature, please contact Phi Beta Kappa at PBK@college.ucla.edu or (310) 825-4112 to authorize the membership fee charge and place guest reservations. Have your student ID number ready.
