Psi Chi is the International Honor Society in Psychology, founded in 1929 for the purposes of encouraging, stimulating, and maintaining excellence in scholarship, and advancing the science of psychology. Since the 2007 installation of our campus chapter, membership has been open to PSUGA students who are at least second-semester sophomores, majoring or minoring in psychology with at least 9 credits in psychology completed, who rank in the upper 35% of their class in general scholarship, earn an overall GPA of at least 3.0, and a psychology GPA of at least 3.0.

Our Penn State chapter not only recognizes academic achievement by granting membership in the Society, but also sponsors programs, often in collaboration with the campus Psychological Association, that augment the regular curriculum, offer service to the campus and the community, develop leadership skills, and provides opportunities to meet other students with similar interests and goals.
