Tau Sigma National Honor Society

The Invitation You’ve Been Waiting For

Tau Sigma is the national honor society exclusive to transfer students. Their mission is to “recognize and promote the academic excellence and involvement of transfer students.” FIU’s chapter offers something for everyone – from leading and learning to connecting and serving. Our activities and programs give members an opportunity to connect with peers, gain leadership skills, serve the community, support and welcome new transfer students to FIU, and have fun! Many graduate and professional schools expect to see applicants who are well-rounded beyond academic achievement. Tau Sigma provides meaningful experiences and 21st century skills that can be incorporated into personal essays, resumes, and job interviews.


  1. FIU degree-seeking transfer student with at least one full year of academic credits from a previous academic institution(s).
  2. Enrolled full-time in the first term at FIU (12 or more credits).
