Scholarships for Transfer Students

Your undergraduate application for admission also serves as your transfer scholarship application to ULM. Please note that in order for you to be eligible for a ULM Transfer Scholarship:

All recipients must be U.S. citizens, first time, full-time enrollment at ULM, and pursuing their first (bachelor) degree (if a student has earned an associate degree, he/she is eligible to apply for the Transfer Scholarships). GPA and earned hours are calculated on all college-level course work (remedial course work is not included in GPA and earned hour calculations). To be considered for a Transfer Scholarship, applicants must submit final, official transcripts from all colleges/universities previously attended, Phi Theta Kappa membership documentation (if applicable) and official ACT or SAT scores if required for the scholarship.  Students admitted to the professional pharmacy program are ineligible for transfer scholarships. Students are eligible for only one transfer scholarship. Students in the RN to BSN program are not eligible for transfer scholarships.

*Scholarships MAY be awarded as funds are available.

Priority Application Deadlines: November 15 (Spring Semester) and August 1 (Fall Semester)

Scholastic Transfer Award* ($2,000-$2,400 per year)

Students who enter ULM in January or later must earn at least 15 credits in their first academic semester.
