If you have an interest in psychology, taken at least one Psychology course, have a minimum overall GPA of 3.25 or higher and completed at least 12 credits, you may qualify.  Psi Beta’s mission is to encourage professional development and psychological literacy of all students at two-year colleges through promotion and recognition of excellence in scholarship, leadership, research and community service.

Students’ qualifications will be reviewed and you will receive a response within a week. Students are encouraged to check their email frequently once they apply as time sensitive information may be sent to you if you are accepted for induction.

There is a one-time induction fee of $50 payable to the national organization. The induction ceremony will be held on Monday, April 9 at 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. in the Harrington Learning Center room 109A . Friends and family are welcome to attend.
