Transfer Scholarships
Students behind the Hughes HouseTransfer your unique style to the St. Thomas family! It’s easy to get lost in the crowd at many colleges, to be just a number — but not at UST. We offer support to make transferring easy. Our financial aid counselors will guide you and your family through solutions to make college affordable.

In addition to merit scholarships, the Monaghan Transfer Scholarship and the Celt Transfer Award are reserved for incoming transfer students. The University awards more than $11.6 million in grants and scholarships each year, and 80 percent of our students receive some type of scholarship or financial aid. UST makes transferring to receive a private education both affordable and accessible.

For more information, please contact your transfer admissions counselor. Please review the many scholarships available for your education.

 
University Merit Scholarships for Transfer Students
Academically strong transfer students may qualify for renewable, merit scholarships based on your college GPA.

Early applications to the University are encouraged, as awarding begins November 1. If awarded a University Scholarship, the Office of Admissions will notify you in writing. Your scholarship will also appear on your award letter from the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid.

Scholarship amounts range from $5,000 to $12,000 per year. For an estimate, please use our Net Price Calculator: Transfer Student Calculator
