Transfer

Scholarships are available for students transferring to MU from other institutes of higher education, and do not require a separate application. The amounts listed below are valid for the Fall 2020 term. A new scholarship structure is coming for students entering in the Fall 2021 term for the 2021-2022 academic year. These scholarships are only available for students who are working on their first Bachelor’s Degree. Students who transfer with 120 or more credit hours will not be eligible for the automatic transfer scholarships. Eligibility is evaluated upon being accepted to MU.
