Transfer Out-of-State Award
This award provides for a renewable scholarship up to the cost of UT's out-of-state surcharge (approx. $9,338) for students outside of Ohio and Monroe County, Mich., who are admissible to UT.
If a new, academically qualified student (2.75 cumulative transfer GPA) enrolls for classes prior to the Fall 2015 semester (Spring 2015 or Summer 2015), the student will be eligible to receive the Transfer Out-of-State Award valued at the full amount of the out-of-state surcharge. If a new, academically qualified student enrolls for classes the Fall 2015 semester or afterwards, the student will receive a minimum Transfer Out-of-State Award of $5,000 and up to the remainder of the value of the out-of-state surcharge based on their financial need as determined by the FAFSA. In addition to the surcharge, eligible students can receive the scholarships listed on the UT Achievement grid based on cumulative transfer GPA and credit hours.
