Transfer students have the same opportunities for merit-based scholarships as first year students. There are a variety of options for transfer students in terms of scholarship, based on where you are transferring from, how much college credit you have completed, and your GPA in the college credit courses you have completed so far.

Phi Theta Kappa Scholarships

Phi Theta Kappa Scholarships ($2,000 stackable and renewable) are available to students who are members of Phi Theta Kappa.  

General Scholarship

Students will be evaluated based on their current GPA and the amount of college credit they have completed in order to receive their merit based aid. Click here to see general merit scholarship standards for university admission.
