Application for Sigma Tau Delta

Status message

Please complete the application form below to apply for membership in Sigma Tau Delta. Admission is not guaranteed and is based on the following set of criteria:

Undergraduate Students

  • Must be an English major
  • In English courses, must hold a "B" average with at least three completed English courses (excluding ENGL101 and any ENGL390's), of which two must be at the 300-400 level
  • Must have at least 45 completed university credits with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher

Graduate Students

  • Must be enrolled in a graduate program in English, Creative Writing, or Comparative Literature
  • Must have completed six semester hours of graduate work or the equivalent
  • Must have a minimum grade point average of 3.3

One-time national organizational dues are $45.00 and must be paid by check, made payable to Sigma Tau Delta. Please note a cashier's check will process faster than a personal check. No credit cards are accepted. If you were previously a member of another chapter and paid dues, then no additional dues are required (please indicate this in your application).

After completing this form you will be directed to a confirmation page. The English Undergraduate Studies Office will review your application and e-mail you with your status.

If approved, you must bring the $45.00 induction dues to 1128 Tawes Hall within five business days.
