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.
Transfer awards are made to students who have met the scholarship deadline. Applications and credentials must be on file by July 15 for fall semester, December 15 for spring semester and May 15 for summer session.
