Untitled Document TRANSFER ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS

The University of Miami offers a generous merit scholarship program. Each year, President's Scholarships are awarded to select transfer students. Students considered for an academic scholarship demonstrate substantial academic accomplishment above and beyond the average academic profile of an admitted transfer student.
Students are automatically considered for the President's Scholarships when they apply for admission to the University. Students selected to receive a President's Scholarship will be notified no later than the end of March by the Office of Admission. Students applying for a second Bachelor degree are not eligible to receive a President's Scholarship.

Scholarships, when combined with other tuition restricted awards, may not exceed tuition for the award period. The total of financial assistance awarded a student from all sources, including scholarships, grants, loans, and need-based employment, cannot exceed the total cost of attendance for the award period as defined by the Office of Financial Assistance Services.

In the event a student's awards exceed either of these limits, the financial aid award, including the scholarship, will be adjusted to eliminate the over award.

The scholarship is available automatically for the first two academic years. Scholarship recipients must complete a full-time program of study, that is, no fewer than 12 credit hours during each of the fall and spring semesters for a minimum of 24 credit hours per academic year. The University may, at its discretion, change the name and funding source of any awarded scholarship. This will not affect the amount of scholarship dollars a student will receive.

Please note: Scholarship recipients should always check with the Office of Financial Assistance Services when adding any awards from outside agencies to find out the full impact of such awards on the total University financial aid award. Students should never assume that their original financial aid award will remain the same if such awards are added. The University reserves the right to modify any financial aid award at any time due to changes in eligibility.
