Welcome to the official web site of the Tau Sigma National Honor Society – a national honor society designed exclusively for transfer students! Our mission is to "recognize and promote the academic excellence and involvement of transfer students." Tau Sigma provides its members opportunities to earn scholarships, attend leadership conferences, take leadership positions in the university, serve others at the university and in the community, all while developing friendships and becoming a more integral part of the university to which they transferred!
Our most recent Leadership Conference was held at the Hard Rock Hotel in Orlando, Florida on September 23-25! There were 75 in attendance, representing 25 different schools! Between networking, attending sessions, listening to speakers, and sightseeing, the attendees came away with new friends and some great ideas for their chapters!
Our next Leadership Conference will be in Washington, D.C. We hope to see you there!
In 2022, we awarded $100,000 in scholarships, ranging from $500 to $5,000, to 71 different members! Congratulations to those who received a scholarship! We will be gathering applications for the next round of scholarships again this fall.
The Transfer-Year Experience program at UT Austin will again host the Transfer Summit this year as a series of 90-minute webinar sessions on April 4, 6, and 7! This convening will be FREE to all student, staff, and faculty participants. The call for proposals for student-led sessions is now open! They would love to showcase a program, training, or transfer story from your institution with students, staff, and faculty from across the country. Last year, they had over 600 registered attendees, and the session recordings have been viewed over 1,000 times. Your session could inform and inspire real change for transfer students!
