While Psi Chi and Psychology Club operate as one organization, they are two different organizations that work together. To attend member-only events, you must belong to either the UH Psi Chi chapter, or Psychology Club. While these two organizations act as one, there are different membership application procedures, as Psi Chi is an honor society, while Psychology Club is a UH student organization. You may either apply to be a member of both Psi Chi and Psychology Club, or you may apply to Psychology Club. Essentially, Psi Chi members are also registered Psychology Club members. Both organizations share meetings, social events, fund raising, and community activities together. As such, both require members to demonstrate a genuine interest in psychology, leadership, high standards of personal behavior, and commitment to actively participate in chapter events and activities. Please see the table below to view the different requirements for membership in either Psi Chi (and Psychology Club) or Psychology Club.
