Transfer Scholarships: A limited number of scholarships may be awarded to transfer students entering in the fall who have a cumulative GPA of 3.50 or better with a minimum of 30, but not more than 90, semester hours earned and have a satisfactory completion rate. Students must be admitted and have all final transcripts submitted by July 15. These scholarships are contingent upon funding each year.
All scholarship awards require full-time enrollment at Lander University unless otherwise specifically stated in the terms of the awards contract. Students may not receive scholarships for semesters in which they are enrolled less than full-time, nor will semesters of ineligibility be extended to the end of the academic career. Scholarships apply to the academic year only, exclusive of summer school, except where otherwise stated. Students may never receive financial aid (including, but not limited to: grants, scholarships, loans, and Federal Work-Study) that exceeds the total cost of attendance for the academic year. Students must remain in good standing with the Lander Honor Code, as outlined in the Student Handbook.
Need-Based Aid (Pell Grants, Student Loans, etc.): Students transferring into Lander University must be making Satisfactory Academic Progress to be eligible for any aid. ALL transcripts from ALL previously attended institutions (even if you withdrew or you are not requesting academic credit from Lander) must be reviewed before eligibility can be determined. You must also file a FAFSA (except for Palmetto Fellows or LIFE Scholarships) and complete all associated requirements by August 1 for aid to be processed for the fall semester and Nov 1 for spring. Otherwise, you will be expected to pay the university by the fee payment deadline and you will be reimbursed IF you become eligible for aid during the term.
