Tau Upsilon Alpha


Tau Upsilon Alpha was established by the National Organization for Human Services in 2006 as an organization to honor students in the human service fields who earned high grade point averages. This national honor society for Human Services was chartered at Wayne State College in the spring of 2012 and nine students were inducted. Seven students were inducted in the spring of 2013 and 5 were inducted in Spring 2014.


Applicants must be in the top 35% of their class and maintain a minimum 3.25 grade point average during a minimum of three full time semesters at Wayne State College (36 hours or more completed). The g.p.a. needed to be in the top 35% is computed yearly. In addition, applicants must have passed a minimum of 20 hours of the required courses for the Human Service Counseling major. Applicants also must complete an application form which requests some information about leadership and service experiences and an agreement to follow the NOHS Code of Ethics. A $40 fee is required for each applicant.


The benefits of TUA include lifetime membership with a certificate, a membership pin, the option to purchase cords for graduation, scholarship opportunities, and participation in an initiation ceremony and other activities of the local chapter.
