Merit Scholarships for Transfer Students

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

This scholarship program is designed for students who transfer to Walla Walla University after June 1, 2020. Students who transferred to WWU prior to June 1, 2020, will remain on the scholarship program that was in place when they initially transferred to Walla Walla University.

This award is renewable for three additional years if the student maintains a 3.00 cumulative college GPA at WWU. See wallawalla.edu/transfer-scholarship for complete official scholarship guidelines.
