Join us on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Let's Finish on a High Note
We can't thank you enough for your support of Psi Chi and for helping us to diversify our membership this academic year. Before final exams get too hectic, here are some new materials to help you complete your spring chapter drives.

  • Have all potential members at your school been invited to join? See our newly expanded list of people who might have been overlooked. Inclusiveness will help Psi Chi fulfill its mission.
  • Advisors, finalize all unpaid member order invoices at least 3 weeks before your upcoming induction ceremonies. Concise instructions and a video tutorial are available.
  • New transfer student requirements took effect March 5, which you can use to make it simpler for transfer students to join.
  • Start training any incoming officers early. Outgoing officers, use this new worksheet to write instructions that will help future generations to maintain your legacy.

It Pays to Host Activities Like These!

Hazing Is Not Sanctioned or Allowed
Chapters may not impose any membership requirement that is not academic in nature, and may not impose any academic requirement that is less lenient than allowed by the Constitution and Chapter Bylaws (which may not conflict with the Constitution). Most universities have strict anti-hazing policies that apply to all student groups, not just sororities and fraternities.

Add Your Name to the Directory
Psi Chi is partnering with PCI in the creation of the 90th Anniversary Membership Directory book. If you would like your information to be included, please call 1-800-982-1590.
