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

The Gamma Nu Chapter of Tau Sigma at Appalachian State University recognizes the academic achievement of the most outstanding transfer students each semester and strives to help our University better serve the transfer population. Tau Sigma members are a great resource made available to serve current and future ASU transfer students.

Our objectives are:

  • Address the current lack of recognition of outstanding academic achievement of transfer students.

  • Provide motivation for the academic excellence of all incoming transfer students.

  • Enhance the reputation of all transfer students.

  • Provide a common bond among transfer students.

  • Promote the involvement of transfer students in the college or university to which they transfer.

  • Form a group of students who can help the college or university address and meet the needs of incoming transfer students.
