Academic Scholarships for Transfer Students

Transfer academic scholarships are awarded to qualified admitted students who have completed 12 or more semester units in college by the time of their acceptance to the university. Academic scholarships cannot be re-earned if lost due to a low GPA, nor can a student qualify for a different academic scholarship while at APU. Award amounts will not increase in subsequent years.
