Requirements for Membership
Transfer students who are already members of Psi Chi
In order to join, you must qualify for membership and join through the chapter where you are currently a student or faculty member.
NOTE: Psi Chi chapters may not impose any type of service activity as a condition for membership in Psi Chi—membership eligibility is based on academic performance. Psi Chi chapters may use more stringent academic criteria for membership than those required in the Psi Chi Constitution, but they cannot use lower academic standards than those required in the Constitution. Hazing is not sanctioned or allowed.
1 Countries with medium or low incomes may be prorated at 80 or 60 percent. Additionally, a processing fee of $5 will be required for potential members of chapters that utilize Psi Chi’s individual payment system.
