Admissions personnel needs the following from prospective transfers:

• Application fee paid.
• Official college transcripts through the fall 2016 semester, reflecting the required earned hours and cumulative GPA requirement.
• Official high school transcript if applicable.
• Students must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
To be considered for a Guaranteed Transfer Promise Scholarship, students must be a first-time incoming transfer who plans to enroll at MTSU in the summer or fall.
The award is for $3,000 per year for two years, with a maximum of four semesters.
