STEPHENVILLE, Texas — Beginning fall 2022, students transferring to Tarleton State University from another college or university will be guaranteed $500-$1,000 scholarships annually. Students must have at least 30 credit hours and a college GPA between 2.0 and 3.0 to qualify.
Amounts for those with a GPA higher than 3.0 will increase to $1,000-$2,000 from original awards of $500-$1,500 unveiled in 2020 as part of the President’s Guaranteed Transfer Scholarship Program.
Students transferring from one of the university’s nine Distinguished College Partners will receive an additional $500, and Tarleton will continue to adjust awards proportionally for qualifying transfer students who enroll at least half time (50-75 percent).
The multimillion-dollar enhancement to the scholarship program aligns with the 123-year vision of Tarleton’s founder to provide a high-quality, affordable education to students who otherwise might not have the chance.
“We have a social and economic responsibility to deepen our historic commitment to educational attainment and affordability,” said President James Hurley. “John Tarleton dreamed of an institution of opportunity. This is one more step to ensure that dream lives on.”
Distinguished College Partners are Blinn College, Cisco College, Dallas College, Hill College, McLennan Community College, Navarro College, Ranger College, the Tarrant County College District and Weatherford College.
Admitted transfer students must submit a general scholarship application to determine eligibility.
