- completed at least three semesters (or five quarters) at an institution having a local TAK chapter in good standing,
- completed a minimum of twelve semester credits or eighteen quarter credits in courses representing religious studies or theology,
- attained a grade point average of at least 3.5 (on a 4-point scale) in such courses,
- attained at least a 3.0 grade point average in their total academic program to date, and
- been ranked in at least the upper 35% of their class in general scholarship at the time of induction or met equivalent standards at the discretion of the chapter representative.
In addition to the national standards, Boston College has additional criteria for undergraduates (as per the TAK Constitution Article III.1.B.1.c):
Undergraduate students must be:
- a Theology major or minor, or
- a Faith, Peace, and Justice minor, or
- a Religion and Public Life minor
Chapter 169 will typically induct new members who are interested accepting the nomination during the Spring semester. At the present moment, our Chapter only inducts undergraduate students. Questions regarding the Boston College Chapter of Theta Alpha Kappa should be sent to the Director of Undergraduate Studies of the Theology Department.
