Application Materials


Due to technical issues, the 2015 Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship deadlines have been extended by one week. 

  • The extended Application deadline is December 9, 2014 by 5:00 p.m., Central time.
  • The extended Recommendation and, if applicable, Parent form deadline is December 16, 2014 by 5:00 p.m., Central time.


  1. Single Phase Application Process – This year’s selection process will consist of a single phase application.  All application materials, including uploads, parent forms (if applicable) and recommendations are due in early December. 
  2. Different deadlines for applicants and parents/recommenders – The deadline for applicants is Tuesday, December 9, 2014.  Because the parent and recommender forms will not be sent until the applicant submits his/her application, we have allowed an additional week for parents and recommenders to complete their forms.  The parent and recommendation forms are due Tuesday, December 16, 2014.


Application Requirements

  • Online application, including transcripts and 2013 Federal Tax Return, due December 9, 2014 (closes at 5:00 p.m., Central Time)
  • Two online recommendation forms from professors or instructors at your community college, due December 16, 2014 (closes at 5:00 p.m., Central Time)
