The deadline, Wednesday, Feb. 15, is fast approaching for students planning to transfer to MTSU from other colleges and universities and apply for two significant scholarships.
The Guaranteed Transfer Promise Scholarship and the Honors Transfer Fellowship are available to qualifying students.
However, applications, fees, transcripts and other requirements for both scholarships must be completed online (or mailed applications postmarked) by Feb. 15, university officials said.
Students must have a 3.0 GPA, have earned 45 to 105 hours and apply by the deadline for the Guaranteed Transfer Promise Scholarship, a $3,000 award per year for two years with a maximum of four semesters.
