Transfer student scholarships are based on the transferable GPA earned at the previous institution. We will determine the transferable GPA after application to the college and official transcripts are received.
Admitted transfer students with fewer than 12 semester hours of transfer credit will, at the discretion of the Director of Admissions, be subject to the same scholarship criteria as that of entering freshmen. These scholarship offerings begin with the fall 2014 class. Other prior classes, please refer to your incoming catalog for scholarship renewal criteria.
