Tau Upsilon Alpha
Tau Upsilon Alpha (TUA) is a national human services honor society established by the National Organization for Human Services (NOHS). Each year students who demonstrate academic excellence and exceptional leadership skills are invited to join.
Members are eligible to participate in an initiation ceremony and can also purchase graduation cords to commemorate their achievement. New members are given a frameable certificate and membership pin. They also receive special scholarship opportunities and can participate in local chapter activities, as well as future induction ceremonies.
TUA was founded in 2006 and chartered at Wayne State College in 2012. Applicants must have completed a minimum of three full-time semesters (36 hours), be in the top 35% of their class, and maintain a minimum 3.25 grade point average in order to apply. In addition, applicants must have passed a minimum of 20 hours of the required courses for the Human Service Counseling major. Those who are interested must complete an application listing their leadership and service experiences, as well as agree to follow the NOHS Code of Ethics. A one-time $40 fee is required for each applicant.
