What is Psi Chi?

No, it is not a sorority or fraternity. Psi Chi is a nationally recognized honor society for psychology students. By applying, being accepted and inducted, and paying the one time due of $70, you become a Psi Chi member for the rest of your life. $55 of the $70 is the required fee of the National Psi Chi organization. The other $15 is kept by our chapter to go towards your induction certificate and our events.

Why Join Psi Chi?

Being a Psi Chi member looks great on your resume. You have access to local, regional, and international forums involving psychology and other people who are interested in it. Psi Chi provides opportunities for you to present any research you may have done, along with chances to publish your work. As a member, you are eligible for specific awards and grants. Once a member, you have access to these benefits for life!
