Merit Scholarships for Transfer Students

Students who complete four (4) transferable college courses at another college or university after graduating from high school are considered to be eligible for these tuition scholarships.  Students with less than four transferable college courses may be awarded merit scholarships based on their cumulative high school GPA and the criteria for those first-year freshman awards.  Students must be enrolled full-time at Wilson College to be eligible for a Merit Scholarship.  Eligibility for the Merit Scholarship ends with the completion of the first bachelor's degree.  Students with an associate's degree from a community college with which Wilson has an articulation agreement who receive a Presidential, Deans or Faculty Scholarship will not receive an additional Transfer Scholarship.
