Transfer and transform
UE’s transfer admission counselor personally guides each student through the transfer process. Each application is reviewed individually for admission and scholarship consideration.
Every admitted transfer student is automatically awarded a UE merit scholarship, which currently ranges from $15,000–$20,000 per year based solely on academics. Phi Theta Kappamembers earn a minimum $17,000- per-year scholarship. Need-based financial aid eligibility is determined by the FAFSA (code: 001795). The transfer admission counselor will walk each student through their financial aid package, which includes all scholarships, grants, and loans available to the student.
Every college transcript is evaluated individually to determine how credits can transfer toward the student’s UE degree program. Transfer students are encouraged to visit campus to meet one-on-one with their admission counselor, professors in their field of study, career advisors, and current students. This is the best way to see if UE is the right fit for you. Once a student has made the decision to attend UE, theywill work with a faculty advisor in their major to register for classes and build a graduation plan.
