Transfer Student Union (TSU) is a student organization and programming board that works to provide transfer students the opportunity to fully transition into the DePaul University student body. TSU works closely with the Office of New Student & Family Engagement to coordinate events, programs and initiatives for transfer students to promote successful transition both socially and academically, as well as acclimate to the city of Chicago.
Find TSU on DeHUB for more information about upcoming meetings and events. If you have questions about Transfer Student Union, email TSUDePaul@gmail.com
Tau Sigma is a national academic honor society for transfer students who ranked in the top 20% of the entering transfer class during their first quarter at DePaul. Tau Sigma’s mission is to "recognize and promote the academic excellence and involvement of transfer students."
The DePaul University Tau Sigma Chapter was founded in 2007 and has inducted over 400 members since it began.
Membership to Tau Sigma is by invitation only. Students who meet the membership criteria will be sent an invitation to join Tau Sigma National Honor Society in the summer following their term of entry into DePaul. Students interested in becoming Tau Sigma members must complete the membership form and mail it back to the Tau Sigma National Office with their one-time $45 membership fee.
If students do not respond to the initial invitation for membership, students are unable to join Tau Sigma at a later date.
Members of DePaul’s Tau Sigma Chapter have various leadership and scholarship opportunities available to them, including appointment as an executive board officer and involvement on committees. Members of Tau Sigma are encouraged to get involved with Transfer Student Union for social events and leadership opportunities.
Congratulations to Jamie Islas, one of our members who received a scholarship from Tau Sigma National Honor Society in 2014!

STARS peer mentors assist with the transition into the DePaul community during a student's first year. Students are offered various services that perpetuate their academic, cultural, transitional and leadership development. These students also can give back to the community later on in their academic careers by serving as peer mentors to future DePaul students.

Transition DePaul is our mandatory orientation program for
incoming transfer and adult students. Transition DePaul programs are
offered in the summer for students entering DePaul in the fall quarter,
in the winter months for students entering in the winter quarter, and in
March for students entering in the spring quarter.
We recognize that you may have attended an orientation already as
a freshman at another institution, and we also understand that your
needs are different from that of a freshman student. The one-day
Transition DePaul program is designed so that students have all their
student-related business taken care of prior to the start of classes.
At DePaul, students complete their required placement process
online before registering for orientation. To complete the placement
process, log in to Blue Demon Domain
with your user ID and password.
Please note – it can take up to two business days for placement tests to process.
One or two business days after you complete the placement
process, return to Blue Demon Domain to sign up for the orientation session
most convenient for you.
Note – registration for orientation closes 5-7 days before the program.
Once we receive your Transition DePaul reservation, a
confirmation email will be sent to you with the date, time and location
of your session. If you do not receive a confirmation email within 24
hours, please email email@example.com.
Do NOT make any travel arrangements prior to receipt of the confirmation email.
