Transfer Student Merit Scholarships

New Transfer Scholarships for 2024

Bridgewater State University now offers several new merit scholarships to qualified transfer students. You will automatically be considered for a merit scholarship during the admission evaluation process. Eligibility for merit scholarships is based on your recalculated cumulative GPA from all previous college transcripts. If you are an admitted transfer with 23 credits or less, you will be considered for our first-year scholarships.
