Traditional, Undergraduate On-Campus Transfer Student Scholarships

Transfer Student Scholarships may be available to you 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 Transfer Student Scholarship, you must:

  • Submit unofficial transcripts for high school and for all institutions attended since high school. Students with six or more college credits can choose to use their cumulative transfer GPA instead of their high school GPA if their cumulative transfer GPA grants them a higher scholarship. SAT and/or ACT test scores can be used so long as you have an unweighted high school GPA of 2.5 or higher.
  • 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.
