Scholarships Available for Undergraduate Transfer Students

Transfer students are advised to inform a financial counselor of their scholarship eligibility and be prepared to document it as required. Students who have previously attended Walla Walla University are not eligible for these awards.

Students who transferred prior to the 2015-16 school year will remain on the scholarship program in place when they initially transferred to Walla Walla University. The award is renewable for three additional years if the student maintains a 3.00 cumulative college GPA.

Students with 12 or more accepted college transfer credits will be awarded a Transfer Scholarship if cumulative college GPA meets the GPA requirement of the Transfer Scholarship.

Recipients must maintain a 3.0 cumulative college GPA for a renewable Transfer Scholarship.

Transfer students are eligible for a maximum of 4 years of Transfer Scholarship or until they have met the maximum number of credits attempted allowed by the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy.

Transfer students who have a break in WWU enrollment to attend another college or university are not eligible for reinstatement of Transfer Scholarship. (With the exception of ACA and SM Programs.)

Transfer students are not eligible for the National Merit Scholarship. Recipients of the scholarship must meet the definition of a first-time freshman.

For the purposes of scholarship eligibility, students can attend another accredited institution during the summer to pull up cumulative GPA and have the scholarship reinstated.
