Transfer Students

What is a transfer student?
Any applicant who has ever been enrolled at any post-secondary schooling (even if you took one course or did not complete a semester) is considered a transfer student.

Merit-Based Scholarship

Merit-based scholarships are awarded based upon your GPA at the time of decision and are not adjusted based upon final GPA. Merit scholarships are renewable for up to three additional years, at the awarded amount (for a total of eight full-time fall and spring semesters). Notification of eligibility is included in your acceptance letter. All merit awards are evenly split between fall and spring semesters. A specific cumulative GPA is required annually to renew merit scholarships, as follows: Presidential and Dean’s: 3.0; Aspire: 2.75. Click here to see PSU’s merit-based scholarships!
