Tau Sigma Honor Society

Tau Sigma is the national honor society specifically for transfer students.

Transfer Honors

UAlbany was approved to open a chapter of Tau Sigma  National Honors Society in the Fall of 2007, and the first induction took place on March 1, 2008. Since then the community has only grown larger and more active on campus.

Spring 2018 induction will take place on March 4th, 2018 at 1:30 PM in the Campus Center Ballroom.

To be eligible for Tau Sigma membership, transfer students must take at least 12 credits in their first semester at UAlbany, and earn a 3.5 GPA or higher in that semester.  Eligible students will be contacted at the end of the semester, and be invited to join the organization.

This is a great leadership opportunity, as well as a great academic goal to help you avoid “transfer shock” in your first semester!  The organization will start to create an agenda of community service, leadership, and networking activities once the membership list has been established.  Keep checking back for ways you can get involved!

The UAlbany Tau Sigma chapter would like to welcome the following 165 new members for Fall 2015 and Spring 2016!!
