Applications are accepted for the first two months of every Fall and Spring Term.  

To apply, please complete an application form. (Applications will be available soon!)   Be sure to return your completed application to Dr. Wiley's mailbox in BSB 1009!  

Once the verification process is complete, you will receive notification whether or not you qualify for membership. If you qualify, you will be sent an invitation to join Psi Chi.  Dues (a one-time fee of $50) are paid upon acceptance of the invitation (DO NOT PAY AT TIME OF APPLICATION).  All new members are then inducted once a year in a ceremony toward the end of Spring term.

FALL applications will be available from the first week of school and will be due by November 1 and SPRING applications will be due by March 1.

All chapters (including the UIC chapter) register their inductees at the Psi Chi National Office where the membership records are preserved for reference and historical purposes. 

If you joined Psi Chi at a previous institution, you are still a member! Membership is for life!  If you wish to transfer your membership, contact the Faculty Advisor.
