The Baylor University Transfer Scholarship is awarded to community college transfer students by virtue of the application for admission. Students who are accepted to Baylor University are considered for scholarship awards based on their cumulative transfer grade point average. For example, students with a cumulative transfer grade point average of 3.75-4.0 are eligible to receive a $9,000 scholarship per academic year. Renewal of these scholarships each year is contingent upon maintaining a cumulative Baylor grade point average of at least 3.0.
