Get involved

Now that you’ve completed your transfer, get the most out of your time at VCU by exploring our wide array of extracurricular opportunities.

Tau Sigma National Honor Society

Tau Sigma, the national honor society for transfer students, recognizes the academic achievement of students transferring to VCU and promotes involvement in activities such as recruiting efforts, transfer student orientations, community service projects and social events.

You’re eligible for membership if you’ve completed at least one year at a prior institution and earned at least a 3.5 GPA or placed in the top 20% of all incoming transfer students during the first term. Email for more details.

Transfer Student Leadership Program

University Student Commons and Activities is proud to offer a leadership program specifically for transfer students. Through seven weekly sessions, this program provides leadership development opportunities and fosters a sense of belonging and ownership as a member of the VCU community. Each cohort will work together with staff to explore their understanding of leadership and gain practical skills for being an exemplary leader.

Registration and information sessions are available on RamsConnect.

Student organizations

VCU is home to hundreds of diverse student groups. We’re confident you’ll find your niche.


To connect with your advisor and register for classes, attend a VCU Orientation session before your first semester.

If you’re unable to attend Orientation, contact the New Student and Family Orientation office. You may then have to make an arrangement with an advisor within the department that houses your major.
