Transfer assured scholarships are awarded based on a student’s academic credentials. The scholarships are guaranteed to all qualified residents and nonresidents (including international students) provided they are admitted to Texas State as a first-time transfer to the university and meet the scholarship qualifications prior to the start of their first semester. It applies to new, first-time transfers from both community colleges and 4-year colleges and universities. Awards will be for the academic year (fall and spring semesters). The Financial Aid and Scholarships office will award admitted transfers who meet the requirements. The scholarship can be renewed for a second year with a 3.0 cumulative Texas State GPA and 24 earned hours in the previous year.
