Transfer Scholarship Eligibility

New domestic transfer students admitted either fall 2013 or spring 2014 semester will be considered for merit and need-based scholarship opportunities. Eligibility is determined at the time of admission. A student must have submitted a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.gov to be considered for need-based scholarships. Students not meeting the transfer application deadline: June 1 for fall 2013 enrollment; or November 15 for spring 2014 enrollment will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Exact scholarship amounts within each range will be determined by a holistic review of the application for admission. Students enrolled less than full time, those attending a regional campus, and students who have already earned a bachelor's degree are not eligible.
