All applicants are automatically considered for merit scholarships; no additional application is required. Transfer students are eligible for the President’s Scholarship of $15,000 annually, if they have a competitive GPA, which is typically a 3.5 or higher. The University of Miami is dedicated to maximizing our need-based financial aid awarding for domestic transfer students, with the goal of meeting 100% of their demonstrated need.

Recipients are notified of their award at the time of admission. 

Eligibility Criteria

Priority consideration is given to transfer applicants who submit all of their Transfer Admission Requirements by March 1 for fall admission and November 1 for spring admission. Spring admission is on a funds-available basis. Please note that the President’s Scholarship is awarded on a funds-availability basis for spring semester applicants.

The admission committee takes into account a student’s post-secondary grades, including rigor of curriculum, along with the holistic review of all application materials. A student’s GPA is recalculated based on the eligible transfer credits.
