Transfer Scholarships

Transfer Scholarship Eligibility

New transfer students admitted for either the spring or fall semester will be considered for merit- and need-based scholarship opportunities. Eligibility is determined at the time of admission. A student must be eligible to receive federal aid and have submitted the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at to be considered for need-based scholarships. 

Transfer students not meeting the transfer application deadline (December 1 for spring enrollment or June 1 for fall 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.

Transfer students enrolled less than full time, those attending a regional campus or participating in College Credit Plus (CCP), and students who have already earned a bachelor's degree are not eligible.
