Transfers, Main Campus
BGSU works hard to provide students with a variety of financial resources and payment options to meet their educational costs. As a special offer to transfer students, the Office of Admissions is providing two financial incentives. Students who are eligible for both will receive the higher of the two incentives. Non-Ohio residents may also qualify for the BG Success Scholarship which provides one-half off the nonresident fee.
A $2,500 nonrenewable award ($1,250 Fall Semester/$1,250 Spring Semester).
A $1,500 nonrenewable award ($750 Fall Semester/$750 Spring Semester).
Renewable scholarship provides one-half off the nonresident fee currently valued at $3,654 per year ($1,827 Fall Semester/$1,827 Spring Semester). Awarded automatically for fall semester to students who meet the criteria.
Awards are for main campus and distance enrollment only and may not be used at BGSU Firelands College.
Transfer scholarships are subject to change for Fall 2014.
