We offer a variety of Transfer Scholarships to incoming transfer students who have completed their sophomore year with a minimum cumulative 2.75 GPA at a regionally accredited community college within Alabama. Transfer students who complete their Associate Degree from a regionally accredited community college from a state other than Alabama with a 3.5 or greater cumulative GPA are eligible for in-state tuition rates. Students must remain enrolled full-time and maintain a 3.0 GPA for all work completed at AUM in order to sustain their scholarship.
To be considered for these scholarships, you must complete your application and provide your supplemental materials by August 1. No additional scholarship application is needed.
