Students who transfer to Thomas More University are eligible for a variety of scholarships. These awards are based on a combination of your financial need, college GPA and your application date. Transfer student candidates need to have completed at least 24 transferable credit hours with a minimum 2.0 transferable GPA to be eligible for financial aid. Fall- and spring-term entrants are eligible. Students must complete an application for admission and scholarship. To receive these awards, students must be full-time.
For transfer students who have attended more than one institution prior to attending TMU, financial aid awards will be determined based on academic performance at the most recent institution attended where the student has earned at least 12 transferable credit hours. If 12 transferable hours have not been earned at any one institutions, financial aid will be determined based on academic performance at the last institution attended with the greatest number of hours earned.
