Update Regarding Transfer Scholarships

For those students who will have Pass (or equivalent) for Spring 2020 classes, Student Financial Aid and Scholarships will use the most recent GPA for the student and will consider Transferable Earned Hours instead of Transferable GPA hours. This means that if a student has 30+ Transferrable "Earned" Hours and the 3.0 GPA prior to the Pass/Fail grading for spring, they would be eligible for the Presidential Scholarships. Students will still have to meet residency requirements and demonstrate financial need as evidenced by the FAFSA or TAFSA.

Transfer Scholarships are offered to students who are admitted as transfer students based on official transcripts submitted to the Office of Admissions and pay toward fall and spring terms. Complete requirements early - final awards are based on transcripts received by July 31st for fall or January 6th for spring entry terms. Non‐residents awarded a Proven Achievers or IMPACT President's Scholarship will qualify to pay in‐state tuition.


2020-2021 Transfer Scholarships

2020-2021 Scholarships

Students awarded a transfer level scholarship of $2,500 for 3 years can be upgraded to a Presidential Transfer or Proven Achiever's level scholarship based on updated transcript information received prior to the first class day of the student's entry semester. Students are eligible for only one university level transfer scholarship.
