About Mu Alpha Theta
Mu Alpha Theta is the National High School and Two-Year College Mathematics Honor Society with over 108,000 student members in June 2015 in more than 2200 schools. We are dedicated to inspiring keen interest in mathematics, developing strong scholarship in the subject, and promoting the enjoyment of mathematics in high school and two-year college students.
How to Join
Students must meet one of the following eligibility requirements:
- “A” in College Algebra (or higher math class) and an overall 3.0 GPA at PRCC
- 25 or higher on the math portion of the ACT
Members will be given exclusive access to MAT scholarships, grants, and internships (see Announcements below for our recent winners). MAT members have the opportunity to compete in national mathematics competitions all over the country. We participate in fun campus events, attend cool presentations, and enjoy building relationships with fellow math minds. We also have opportunities for our members to earn volunteer hours to enhance their school applications and resumes.
Many congratulations to our latest student scholarship recipients:
