The Aggie Transfer Scholarship program recognizes outstanding students who will be transferring to Texas A&M University. The annual awards range from $500 to $3,000. Selection criteria for the Transfer Scholarship include, but are not limited to, academic achievement, extracurricular activities, leadership, major, and, in some instances, financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Effective Fall 2017, students must be awarded and maintain competitive scholarships of at least $4,000 per academic year in order to qualify for the Non-Resident Tuition Waiver. Current students with existing and continuing scholarship awards may continue to receive this waiver at the previous $1,000 threshold. All new students and new scholarship recipients are subject to the $4,000 minimum.
You must be an admitted undergraduate transfer student to be considered for Transfer Scholarships. To receive funds, you must enroll full-time. In order to provide the most opportunity to the greatest number of students, Texas A&M does not stack Aggie Transfer Scholarships. If you qualify for more than one Aggie Transfer Scholarship you will receive the highest dollar-value scholarship only.
Some transfer scholarships are multi-semester scholarships while other awards are one semester in duration. For multi-semester transfer scholarships, you must continually meet the scholarship requirements for each awarded semester in order to receive the semester’s award amount.
The colleges at Texas A&M University offer generous scholarships for incoming freshman, current students and transfer students.
