Transfer Student Association
The Transfer Student Association is a student organization that helps to connect transfer
students to one another and assist each other in areas of need at the university level.
We strive to inform transfer students about happenings on campus and engage in both
the Southern Miss and Hattiesburg communities. If you’re looking for a way to get
involved on campus and connect with other students, join TSA! Interested in joining
