Psi Beta

Psi Beta emblem

Psi Beta is the national honor society in psychology for community and junior colleges. It is the first two-year college honor society approved for membership in the Association of College Honor Societies, which regulates membership requirements. The mission of Psi Beta is professional development of psychology students through promotion and recognition of excellence in scholarship, leadership, research, and community service. Some of the benefits of being a member of Psi Beta include the opportunity to gain national recognition of honor in psychology, to interact with students and faculty with similar interests outside of the classroom, to participate in community and campus service, and to acquire leadership skills.

Academic requirements for eligibility to be a member of Psi Beta include being a part of the top 35 percent of students who have completed 12 hours of college credit, taken at least two psychology courses, and earned an A or B in these courses. Those eligible students will receive an invitation e-mail from the Psi Beta organization. Eligible students wishing to become a member then must file a membership registration card, accept Psi Beta’s policies and bylaws, and pay a once-in-a-lifetime national registration fee of $50. An induction ceremony is held for all new members at the end of each year.
