Tau Sigma National Honor Society

Tau Sigma National Honor Society is a prestigious national honor society designed exclusively for transfer students. Their mission is to "recognize and promote the academic excellence and involvement of transfers students." Tau Sigma provides its members opportunities to network, develop friendships, earn scholarships, and attend conferences, as well as take leadership positions and serve others at the university and in the community.

Membership: To receive an invitation to join Tau Sigma, you must be registered in a course of study leading to a bachelor's degree at Texas A&M University for an amount of work equal to an average full load (usually 12 to 15 hours).  Membership in the Organization is based upon superior academic achievement by transfer students during their first term in the institution to which they transfer (only credit hours that count toward a bachelor's degree can be used to determine Tau Sigma eligibility). The minimum academic average required for membership is 3.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale.
