Transfer students have many scholarships available to help make the transition to the University of Utah. Here are the places you can go to find one for you!
Curious about the transfer scholarship process at the University Scholarship Office? Check out our Transfer Scholarship Checklist page to help keep you on track!
Transfer applicants who have submitted a complete admissions application for Fall by March 1st will automatically be considered for merit scholarships. Transfer students who hope to be considered for need-based scholarships must also submit a FAFSA by the March 1st FAFSA Priority Deadline.
Students are eligible to receive a transfer scholarship if they, at the time of applying for admission, have completed at least 60 semester credits from a regionally-accredited college or university after high school. Test credits (AP, IB, CLEP, Language, etc.) do not apply toward the 60 semester credit requirement. Concurrent enrollment will also not be included in the 60 semester credit requirement unless the student has attended another college or university for at least one semester after high school graduation. Students with fewer transfer hours may qualify for scholarships of lesser value.
The University’s searchable scholarship database allows students to identify available scholarships by college, department, major, or other special categories.
You may also apply for outside, private scholarships. Many scholarships are listed in online resources, such as FastWeb. Each outside scholarship will have a unique application process and deadline.
