Welcome to Psi Chi
Psi Chi is the International Honor Society in Psychology, founded in 1929 with two primary purposes:
  1. to encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship, and
  2. to advance the science of psychology.

Membership is open to undergraduate and graduate students who are majoring in psychology, and who meet the minimum qualifications. Psi Chi is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies and is an affiliate of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the Association for Psychological Science (APS). Psi Chi's sister honor society is Psi Beta, the national honor society in psychology for community and junior colleges.

Students become members by joining the chapter at the school where they are enrolled. Psi Chi chapters are operated by student officers and faculty advisors. Together they select and induct the members and carry out the goals of the Society. Over 1,100 Psi Chi chapters are located around the globe.

All chapters register their inductees at the Central Office. The total number of memberships registered at the Central Office is now over 600,000 lifetime members. The Central Office is located in Chattanooga, Tennessee. A Board of Directors, composed of psychologists who are Psi Chi members and are elected by the chapters, guides the affairs of the organization and sets policy with the approval of the chapters.

The Psi Chi Central Office is located at 825 Vine Street in Chattanooga, Tennessee in the historic neighborhood of Fort Wood, where most of the houses were constructed in the late 19th or early 20th century.
