Transfer Student Scholarships

Minnesota State University Moorhead offers automatic, competitive and need-based scholarships to transfer students. Automatic scholarships, based on transfer GPA, are awarded at the time of admission. In addition to automatic scholarships awarded through the admissions process, the Minnesota State University Alumni Foundation offers scholarships gifted by alumni, businesses, friends and foundations to incoming, current, and graduate students. Many of these scholarships are available through individual departments, colleges and programs.

Transfer Automatic Scholarships

Automatic scholarships are easy — just apply and be admitted. A separate application is not required. Transfer scholarships will be awarded automatically to undergraduate transfer students (successfully completed 24 semester or 36 quarter credit hours), who are U.S. citizens, seeking their first undergraduate degree. Full-time enrollment (12 or more MSUM credits each semester) is required to receive the scholarship.
