A student must be enrolled full-time to receive institutional aid. 12 hours is considered full-time for undergraduates. Enrolling in less than 12 hours will result in institutional aid being fully rescinded.

Criteria:

When is an applicant considered to be a transfer student?

A new student is identified as a transfer when they have received a high school diploma or equivalency diploma and meet either one of the following criteria:

  • at least one college term with full-time enrollment after high school graduation (12 semester credits or more of college courses)
  • Earned 18 or more cumulative semester credits of college courses after high school graduation

For the Transfer Academic Excellence Award, the transfer's combined college cumulative gpa must be 3.5 or higher. The calcualtion will be made using grades earned in any of the following:

  • college courses taken through dual-enrollment as a high school student
  • college courses taken after high school
  • college courses in which the student is currently enrolled
  • college courses in process of completion at the time the admission application is reviewed

Note: Students may take college courses while still in high school without becoming classified as a transfer. However, the grades earned in those college courses will be included in all college GPA calculations and used in admission and scholarship decisions.

Application:

Transfer Academic Excellence Award:  No separate application

Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship:  Provide documentation of participation in PTK at prior college
