• Information About Honor Regalia


  • Dear Potential Graduate,

    Congratulations on earning a degree or certificate from Mt. Hood Community College. You should receive a letter with commencement details in the mail; this message explains how members of Phi Theta Kappa honor society can purchase honors regalia to wear with the cap and gown at the graduation ceremony. According to our records you are a member of Rho Theta chapter of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society and may be eligible to wear this special regalia.

    Am I eligible to wear honors regalia? Phi Theta Kappa members whose cumulative grade point average is 3.0 or higher as of the end of winter quarter may wear the gold honors stole ($24), the gold tassel ($10) and the Phi Theta Kappa key medallion ($25).

    Am I eligible to wear honor cords? You may wear the double honor cords ($15) only if your Mt. Hood Community College cumulative grade point average is 3.65 or higher as of the end of winter quarter.

    How can I purchase regalia? You may order these items directly from the Recognitions portion of the Phi Theta Kappa website, www.ptk.org, or you may buy them through Rho Theta chapter and save money on shipping. (Rho Theta charges only $1 per item for shipping and handling.) You may find it more convenient to pay by check or cash, since credit/debit transactions must go through the Student Union.

    Honors regalia will be available through Rho Theta on a first-come, first-served basis until it is all sold. Rho Theta is a student-run organization, so sales hours are limited.

    Honors regalia will be sold in the college bookstore the following days and times:

    Monday, May 8: 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
    Wednesday, May 10: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
    Thursday, May 11: 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
    Friday, May 12: 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
    Monday, May 15: 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
    Wednesday, May 17: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
    Thursday, May 18: 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
    Friday, May 19: 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

    If you have questions, please visit us at the small table in the bookstore during regalia sales hours or call, email or visit us in the Rho Theta office, AC 2335C in the back of the library. The officers of Rho Theta congratulate you on all your accomplishments. We wish you the best and brightest future possible.
