Phi Alpha Theta chapters are established and maintained in fully-accredited four-year colleges and universities. To be considered, the college or university must have:

  • A minimum enrollment of 1,000 students
  • A minimum of 3 full-time history faculty (two of whom hold the doctoral degree)

There are two deadlines throughout the year which new chapter applications are accepted – March 1st and October 1st.  Chapters that are approved the semester they apply will be installed the following semester, i.e. those approved in the spring will be installed in the fall and those approved in the fall will be installed the following spring.

For information on establishing a chapter, a History Department faculty member should contact the national office:
