Special Clubs and Programs

How to get involved when you get here.

UB has many programs designed especially for the transfer student community. Getting involved is a great way to connect with the campus and your fellow UB students.

Transfer Student Honor Society

The University at Buffalo is pleased to offer the second oldest chapter of Tau Sigma National Honor Society for transfer students. Students who participate in the honor society are active members of the UB community. In order to be eligible for lifetime membership, you must obtain a minimum GPA of 3.5 after completing your first full-time semester at UB (a minimum of 12 credit hours must be completed). An induction ceremony is held each spring semester. Members sponsor a variety of programs that help new students become familiar with UB and make a smooth transition.

The Advanced Honors Program

The Advanced Honors Program is meant for academically high-achieving students, usually sophomores and juniors with a minimum GPA at UB of 3.5. Students can apply to the program after completing at least 45 credit hours (which includes AP, IB and college credits). Transfer students are encouraged to apply as they are applying to UB. Deadlines are Oct. 1 and March 1.

For more information and to apply, visit the program’s website or contact the University Honors College at 716-645-3020.
