Transfer Student Scholarships

Applying for Scholarships as a Transfer Student

We are pleased to recognize transfer students who demonstrate high academic achievement at the collegiate level and are working towards their first bachelor degree. Students need to complete the online scholarship application to be considered.

Scholarship opportunities have varying deadlines and may also rely on FAFSA information for need-based awards. A transfer student application must be submitted before transfer scholarships can be awarded. Be sure to submit all applications early for optimal consideration. You may receive an email if you are selected for a scholarship or if you need to provide additional information. 

Applications are reviewed based on your academic record and your answers to our questionnaire.
