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 admission and college transcript(s) by the appropriate deadline. Your application for admission serves as your scholarship application. To view a list of scholarships for which incoming transfer students are automatically considered, click here. There are a few scholarships for incoming transfer students that require a separate application or have additional requirements to apply. Please see the list below 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 and some 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.
Did you receive the Idaho Promise scholarship at your former school? If you received less than four semesters of the Idaho Promise scholarship at your former school and maintained the criteria for the award while receiving it, then you may still be eligible for the award at ISU. Please contact the ISU Scholarship Office to see if you are eligible for continuation of the Idaho Promise at ISU! Please note: No matching funds in years three and four are provided.
Some scholarship awarding is based on demonstrated financial need. To be considered for any need-based awards, 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 http://www.fafsa.gov. If you need assistance with the FAFSA, please contact the ISU Financial Aid Office at (208) 282-2756.
