UAH recognizes the academic success of new transfer students who are seeking their first bachelor's degree by offering special two-year transfer scholarships.  Students who submit an application for admission and official transcripts from all previously attended colleges are automatically eligible for consideration. No separate scholarship application is required.

Students must be full-time, seeking their first bachelor's degree and be admitted to UAH to be eligible for these awards.
