While Psi Chi and Psychology Club generally 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 requirements, application processes, and dues (Psi Chi Honor Society members pay a $55 one time fee for a life-time membership and Psychology Club members pay $25-55 per semester depending on their Points), as Psi Chi is an honor society and 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 Honor Society 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.
You only need to submit ONE application for each process you plan on applying for while you are a student at UH. You do not get removed from our system unless you have graduated. If you are unsure if you are a member, please check your email to see if you got an acceptance letter, email us to confirm your status, or check our "Points" tab to see if your student ID is listed.
