Psi Chi Honor Society
Psi Chi, the National Honor Society in Psychology, recognizes outstanding academic achievement and promotes active student involvement in the field of psychology. The SUNY Poly chapter of Psi Chi received its charter in 1984. A program in psychology must meet high standards in academic requirements and faculty qualifications in order to qualify for a Psi Chi charter.
Students with Junior standing, an overall GPA of 3.0, a GPA in psychology courses of 3.4, and a minimum of 24 credits completed at SUNY Poly are eligible for membership. Please contact Dr. Andrew Gallup, the Psi Chi advisor, if you are interested in joining the society.
