“Recognizing and Promoting the Academic Excellence and Involvement of Transfer Students”

Tau Sigma Honor Society Crest


Tau Sigma is an academic honor society designed specifically to "recognize and promote the academic excellence and involvement of transfer students."


Tau Sigma was established to recognize the academic achievement of the most outstanding transfer students and, in the process, help to better serve the University as well as their academic peers and colleagues. Tau Sigma members (among the most accomplished transfer students on campus) are perhaps the greatest resource available to serve the current and future transfers at Morgan State University. Spring 2012 inductees made history in that they were the first lifetime members to sign the chapter roll. Morgan State University was the first HBCU in the state of Maryland to be awarded a charter (March 2012).  Click here for the Constitution and By-laws.  


Membership Criteria:


1) the student must be enrolled as a full-time student,

2) the student must transfer to Morgan State University with at least one full year's worth of academic credits (i.e., 24 credits), and

3) the student must finish their first term after transferring to Morgan State University with a 3.5 GPA.


Eligible students are determined by the chapter adviser each year with an induction ceremony occurring toward the end of each spring semester.


For more information contact any member of the Office of Transfer Student Programming staff at 443-885-3711 or e-mail the chapter adviser at Adrienne.Karasik@morgan.edu.
