National Honor Societies

A notation is posted on a student's transcript by the Registrar's Office for induction to Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa Phi, and Tau Beta Pi. Induction into other National Honor Societies on the
U-M Ann Arbor campus is not noted on the student's transcript.

Phi Beta Kappa

Phi Beta Kappa, founded in 1776, is the oldest scholastic honorary society in America. Up to four percent of each year's graduating seniors and a very few juniors of the highest scholastic ranking may be invited to join Phi Beta Kappa.

Phi Kappa Phi

The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi is the nation's oldest, largest, and most selective all-discipline honor society. The distinguishing characteristic of Phi Kappa Phi is its belief that all branches of higher education merit recognition.

Tau Beta Pi

Tau Beta Pi is the only engineering honor society representing the entire engineering profession. It is the nation's second-oldest honor society.
