Psi Chi - National Honor Society in Psychology
Psi Chi is the National Honor Society in Psychology and membership is by invitation only.
According to the National Council's standards for induction, members of Psi Chi must represent at least the top 35% of students in their respective class in general scholarship at the time of induction and must also exhibit excellence in scholarship in psychology.
The National Council allows individual chapters to establish more restrictive criteria for induction into the chapter, if they choose to do so. The Officers of the ASU chapter of Psi Chi have chosen to exercise this option and have decided that potential members must meet the following criteria for induction:
- Have reached at least Sophomore status
- Have attained an overall GPA of at least 3.0 at the time of induction
- Have completed at least 9 semester hours of psychology coursework
- Have attained a GPA of at least 3.0 in all psychology courses at the time of induction
The charter members for ASU's chapter were inducted during our charter installation ceremony on Tuesday, November 18, 2003. Following this charter membership induction, inductions are held at least every spring semester.
We are very excited about this opportunity for the many outstanding students in our department to be honored for their accomplishments and to explore more opportunities for funding of their research projects.
If you think you may qualify for induction and you have not been contacted, please see Dr. McCarley, the faculty advisor of the ASU chapter of Psi Chi, for more information on qualifications for induction.
