What is Psi Beta?
Founded in 1982, Psi Beta is a national honor society for students attending two-year colleges, inviting students who plan to major or minor in psychology, as well as students who simply have an interest in psychology. Our mission is to encourage professional development and psychological literacy of students by promoting and recognizing excellence in scholarship, leadership, research, and community service.
Membership is offered through your local Psi Beta chapter and is open to students who maintain a minimum GPA of 3.25 and have completed a college-level psychology course with a grade of B or higher. Chapters’ functions and activities are operated by the Psi Beta student members and faculty advisors, and the National Council guides the affairs and policies of the organization.
