Transfer students are encouraged to hit the ground running when they arrive on Winthrop’s campus to get involved. Just because you’ve transferred, means you have not missed out on the great experiences Winthrop has to offer. We would encourage you to look into:
Tau Sigma is a National Honor Society that recognizes the academic achievements of transfer students following their first semester at Winthrop University. Tau Sigma typically holds its annual induction ceremony in late February. Transfer students are invited to join following the completion of their first semester. Selection of students is competitive and limited to students who represent the top 20% of their cohort and/or earn a minimum 3.5 GPA for their first semester. In addition to receiving recognition for their academic achievement, Tau Sigma members have the opportunity to participate in events that give back to the community, as well as network with and mentor other transfer students. For information about Winthrop’s Tau Sigma chapter, please contact Military, Adult, and Transfer Services. Information about Tau Sigma can also be found at http://www.tausigmanhs.org. With the establishment of our Delta Nu chapter of Tau Sigma, Winthrop became the 108th institution to establish a chapter of the Tau Sigma Honor Society.
