Phi Eta Sigma is a campus-wide academic honor society installed in April 2003 at UW-Parkside. Phi Eta Sigma honors the academic performance of student in their first year and encourages continued academic excellence. Students are invited to join on the basis of specific criteria, including full-time status (excluding academic skill courses), degree-seeking, and achieving a 3.5 grade point average during one semester of their first year.

There is a small membership fee which covers the cost of an academic key or tie tack, a membership certificate, and a copy of the national magazine, Forum of Phi Eta Sigma.The membership benefits include:
