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.

The Spring 2019 induction was held March 10th, 2019 in the Campus Center Ballroom where we inducted 143 new members!

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!
