Scholarships for Transfer Students

Scholarships for Transfer Students

The following scholarships are awarded once you have: 1) been accepted for admission, 2) met the necessary criteria for the scholarship with official documentation, and applied for financial aid through submission of the FAFSA and cleared verification while funds are still available (by July 31st for the fall and Dec. 1st for the spring). 3) Enroll full-time (minimum of 12 hours per term, Fall and Spring). You will receive the largest scholarship for which you are qualified.

These awards don't require a scholarship application, but we encourage you to do so. You will receive official notification of your award to accept and write a thank you letter.  This notification will also include additional information about the requirements for your scholarship.
