Scholarship Information - New Transfer Students

As a transfer student to Idaho State University, you will be considered for the many scholarships that Idaho State University has to offer as long as you meet our February 15th (for fall entry) or November 1st (for spring entry) application deadline. We must have your completed application for ISU admission and college transcript(s) submitted by the appropriate deadline. Your application for admission serves as your scholarship application. Visit: ISU Admissions Office. There are additional scholarships for incoming transfer students that require a separate application or have additional requirements to apply. Please see BOSS for more information.

Your eligibility for transfer scholarships will be based on your ranking among other applicants in the pool. To rank you, we consider the number of credits you have completed and your transfer GPA. Some scholarships are based on specific majors while others will require the recipient to have resided in Idaho for at least three years or be from a certain county in Idaho. We will look at all of these criteria when we consider you for our transfer scholarships.

Some scholarship awarding is based on demonstrated financial need. To be considered for any need-based scholarships, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Priority processing of financial aid (FAFSA) applications begins on March 1st each year. Some types of financial aid are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Therefore, it's a good idea to submit your FAFSA by the priority processing deadline. The FAFSA is available online at If you need assistance with the FAFSA, please contact the ISU Financial Aid Office at (208) 282-2756.
