Traditional, Undergraduate On-Campus Gap and Transfer Student Scholarships

Gap and Transfer Student Scholarships may be available to you if you do not enroll at GCU the semester following your high school graduation or if you are transferring from another university or college to GCU and plan to attend classes on GCU’s main campus as a traditional, undergraduate student.

To apply for a Gap and Transfer Student Scholarship, you must:

  • Submit unofficial transcripts for all institutions attended since high school. If you did not attend another college or university, you must provide your high school transcript. SAT and/or ACT test scores can be used to apply for these scholarships if you have a 2.5 or higher unweighted high school GPA. Students who have six or more attempted college credits can use their cumulative college transfer GPA to qualify for academic scholarships.
  • Upon completion of final terms at all institutions, provide the official transcripts to GCU. For scholarship adjustment considerations, submit unofficial transcripts, due no later than two weeks prior to the start of the term. All official transcripts are due by day 21 of the semester to lock in your scholarship award.
  • Once enrolled as a traditional, undergraduate student and attending classes on GCU’s main campus, you must maintain continuous full-time enrollment at GCU and adhere to the scholarship program requirements for renewal.
