[314] Feb. 15 deadline looms for MTSU transfer students seeking guaranteed scholarship

MURFREESBORO — Prospective students planning to transfer from community colleges or other four-year schools to MTSU need to be aware of an upcoming deadline:

For those who are eligible, you need to apply by Monday, Feb. 15, to receive the MTSU Guaranteed Transfer Promise Scholarship.

The university is offering $3,000 per academic year and renewable for up to four semesters.

The requirements include:

• 3.0 cumulative college GPA.
• Forty-five to 105 earned hours after the fall semester before enrolling in the summer or fall at MTSU.
• Make application for admission and meet all scholarship requirements by Feb. 15. No separate scholarship application is required for the Transfer Promise Scholarship.

“We don’t want first-time transfer students to miss an opportunity to secure scholarship funds by missing the upcoming February 15 deadline,” said Wendi Pelfrey, interim director of undergraduate recruitment.

MTSU transfer recruiters and admissions staff have been emphasizing the deadline during recent “Paint the Community Colleges True Blue” visits across the state and contact with other potential transfers.
