psi chiPsi Chi is the International Honor Society in Psychology. Our Psi Chi chapter provides you with the opportunity to join if you meet certain standards as follows:

  • Completion of 9 credit hours of psychology courses

Membership in Psi Chi is an earned honor which is for life. A permanent record of your membership is preserved at the Psi Chi National Office and may be used for reference purposes such as applications for graduate school and jobs. There is a one-time fee for lifetime membership, a certificate suitable for framing, a membership card, and a lapel pin. There are no annual national dues.

When you are inducted into Psi Chi, you become eligible to wear the Psi Chi honor cord, medallion, jewelry, stole, etc. Copies of Psi Chi’s magazine, Eye on Psi Chi, are sent to each chapter for distribution to the members while they are in school. After graduation, members are encouraged to subscribe to Eye on Psi Chi to keep up with Psi Chi news. Psi Chi members are eligible to present research papers/posters at Psi Chi programs held at national and regional conventions. In addition, members may participate in Psi Chi’s undergraduate and graduate research award and grant programs. Undergraduate members may submit their research for publication in the Psi Chi Journal of Undergraduate Research. The names of new members and activities of chapters are published in Eye on Psi Chi and are preserved for historical purposes.
