Transfer Honor Society
In 2004, PSU established a charter of the National Transfer Honor Society - TAU SIGMA. You will be eligible for membership in the honor society if you complete 12 or more credits in your first PSU semester and earn a 3.5 or greater GPA. You will pay a one time membership fee of $30 and each spring new members are inducted in a formal ceremony. Additionally, Tau Sigma continues activities throughout the year aimed at helping new transfer students make a smooth transition to PSU life. Tau Sigma is run by a few elected student leaders and it is a great way to get involved, meet other students and develop leadership skills.

Transitions UGS 101
Transitions is a six-week, one-credit hour course designed to assist students in making a smooth transition to Pittsburg State University.
The goal of the Transitions course is to provide transfer students the opportunity to interact with students who are sharing in their same experiences. Students who participate are trained in the use of the university-wide enrollment system (GUS), are exposed to a wide range of campus activities, are introduced to community services and amenities, and are informed of campus services and resources.
Transitions is available in the fall and spring semesters and is recommended for all transfer students.
Transfer Scholar Leadership Program
The Transfer Scholar Leadership Program was created to recognize the outstanding achievements of students transferring to Pittsburg State University from a community college. In addition, program goals include encouraging and promoting involvement at PSU by transfer students who have demonstrated their leadership potential while in the community college.
Twelve students each year will be selected for the Transfer Scholar Leadership Program. Each student will receive a $2,000 scholarship renewable for a second year provided the student has completed at least 24 PSU hours with a minimum of a 3.0 GPA after the first year.
