Automatic Scholarships (Any Amount)/In-State Tuition Scholarships for Out-of-State Transfers?

stelliferousstelliferous Registered User Posts: 57 Junior Member
Are there any universities ranked in the top 75 that offer scholarships automatically based on GPA/SAT scores? Or any schools that offer in-state tuition for out-of state students? I would be a transfer student from Texas.

    Not sure if it's in the top 75 but U of Maine at Orono offers in-state matching. They have some excellent programs and it's a gorgeous area. Also there's an airport in the town, with direct flights from a surprising number of places.

    Also check out U of Alabama Tuscaloosa and Huntsville.

    Top 75 schools that offer automatic scholarships to TRANSFER students?

    The answer is...zero.

    Why are you transferring?

    I believe University of Nebraska Lincoln gives a George Beadle Transfer scholarship for specific high stats that is pretty close to instate tuition. A bargain for a good state flagship!

    @bobo44 is it automatic?

    You can look it up on their website. I know it is automatic for first year applicants and I noted at the time my daughter applied as a freshman that they offered the Beadle for transfers as well (but I recall it being around $500 less for transfers.) Worth checking out.

    Beadle is $14.5K/year to offset OOS costs. https://admissions.unl.edu/cost/#scholarships/transfer-george-beadle

    U Toledo offers up to full tuition but it's competitive. http://www.utoledo.edu/admission/transfer/scholarships/prestige.html

    Not a top 75 school, but the Amigo Transfer Scholarship at Univ of New Mexico gives instate tuition plus $100/semester to OOS transfers with a 3.5 GPA.

    Thank you for all the replies!!!

    @thumper1 I got into a private top 40 uni as a high school senior but was not offered enough financial aid. For my first year of college, I ended up going to another school, but I rarely met other students who spent as much time on studying and extracurriculars as I did. As a rising college sophomore, I now have the chance to attend a top 60 school in-state, but the major I want to pursue is not guaranteed to me.
