ASU Distinguished Transfer Scholarships

This is our most prestigious scholarship program for transfer students, and it’s available exclusively at ASU.

Your Future, Our Commitment.

Awards are based on your GPA for your transferable courses and the number of your transferable credit hours. Once you have been admitted to ASU, you will automatically be considered. You don’t have to apply!

ASU Distinguished Transfer Scholarship Top-Level Nomination Form

*You must be nominated for the top-level $3,000 scholarship by a faculty, staff, or administrator of the institution you last attended (academic advisor, dean of student life, etc.) before you begin attendance at ASU. Nominations from personal contacts are not accepted.

If you are nominated for the $3,000 scholarship and have already qualified for another ASU Distinguished Transfer Scholarship, the lower-level scholarship will be canceled, and the $3,000 scholarship will be awarded.
