Student Organizations

Psi Chi International Honor Society

Psi Chi is the International Honor Society in Psychology, founded in 1929 to encourage, stimulate and maintain excellence in scholarship and advancing the science of psychology. Membership is open to graduate and undergraduate students who are making the study of psychology one of their major interests, and who meet the minimum qualifications (9 credit hours in psychology and a 3.0 overall and psychology GPA).

Membership in Psi Chi is an earned honor for life. A permanent record of your membership is preserved at the Psi Chi National Office and may be used for reference purposes, such as applications for graduate school and jobs. The Psi Chi national membership fee is $55 and the Psi Chi chapter fee is $15 (if you are not already a member of the Psychological Science Club). This is a one-time fee for lifetime membership and includes a certificate suitable for framing, a membership card and a lapel pin. There are no annual dues.

Upon induction into Psi Chi, you are eligible to wear Psi Chi regalia at graduation, to receive copies of Eye on Psi Chi (the honor society’s magazine), to present research at Psi Chi programs held at national and regional conventions, to participate in Psi Chi’s undergraduate and graduate research award and grant programs and to submit undergraduate research for publication in the Psi Chi Journal of Undergraduate Research. The names of new members and chapter activities are published in Eye on Psi Chi and preserved for historical purposes.

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).

If you are interested in joining Psi Chi, you must complete the Online Membership Application.  Your membership eligibility will be determined upon receipt of your application. Questions about Weber State's Psi Chi Chapter should be directed to the faculty advisor, Dr. Tim Black (

Psychological Science Club

The Psychological Science Club here at Weber State is a great way to get involved with your school and make amazing friends. It will look great on a resume as you can work with fellow students and professors in conducting research and performing service projects. The club works closely with the department’s honor society, Psi Chi. You do not need to be a psychology major or minor to join the club, so don't hesitate!
