Every year, Sigma Tau Delta holds formal ceremonies for induction into the society, officer elections, and award recognition, organizes field trips to local events of literary interest and to annual conferences and conventions, hosts themed events for the chapter, department, faculty, or students university-wide, as well as designs and participates in fundraising and service-projects to benefit the Lowcountry community.

- Have a minimum of a “B” (3.0) average in English and general education courses.
- Have completed a minimum of three semesters of college work.
- Have taken a minimum of two college courses in English language or literature beyond the general education requirements (101/102).
