Curious about the transfer scholarship process at the University Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (UOSFA)? Check out our Transfer Scholarship Checklist page to help keep you on track!
Transfer Scholarships Offered by the UOSFA
Transfer applicants who have submitted a complete admissions application for Fall by Feb. 1 will automatically be considered for merit scholarships. Transfer students who hope to be considered for need-based scholarships must also submit a FAFSA and complete their financial aid file by the Feb. 1 Financial Aid Priority Date.
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.
Campus Scholarship Resources
Additional scholarships are available based on college, department, major and other special categories. The application process and deadline for each scholarship will vary. Please note some departments have moved their scholarship applications over to the new Academic Works system. You must have a Campus Information Services (CIS) account to log in. Admitted students can find this information in their admissions letter (University ID and password). To apply, visit the Academic Works scholarship search page.

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.
