PROGRAM DETAILS

Second Chance Transfer Students are defined as being prior Utah Tech admits, who are returning to Utah Tech after attending another institution.

Transfer Students who are transferring less than 24 credits will be awarded a Freshman Academic Scholarship based on their High School GPA, with no consideration given to class rank.

Transfer Students with a Bachelors’ Degree or higher, and students who are transferring in excess of 150 credit hours are not eligible for academic scholarships.

Reduced Credit Hour Requirements: Students accepted into approved cohort programs may find that their cohort requires less than 15 credit hours of enrollment (yet is still considered full-time due to the workload). In such cases, the applicant may request that their scholarship requirement be reduced. All such requests must be made to the Scholarship Office: scholarships@utahtech.edu.

Non-Resident Students will be automatically considered upon full admission to Utah Tech but may also physically apply for the WUE, Red Rocks, Good Neighbor & Half Merit awards here.
