Transfer Scholarships & Financial Aid
Financial aid is also an important part of the transfer process. 99% of Misericordia students receive financial aid, both merit and need based. In addition to federal and state aid, the University considers all full-time transfer students for academic scholarship awards.
Transfer students with a cumulative grade point average above a 2.5 may qualify for academic scholarship.
- Merit Scholarship
To demonstrate its commitment to academic excellence, the University awards financial assistance to incoming transfers who have attained outstanding academic records. The annual scholarships are renewable until graduation, provided minimum grade point averages and satisfactory academic progress are maintained. The minimum averages required for retention of the award are outlined in the scholarship notification letter. Annual award amounts range from $5,000 to $13,000.
Students with records of leadership, volunteerism and participation in extracurricular activities may qualify for annual awards ranging from $1,000 to $3,000. The McAuley Award is based off of the application where you filled out extra-curricular activities.
- Institutional Award
Transfer students who have earned an Associate's Degree from Luzerne County Community College, Lackawanna College or Keystone College receive a $1,000 annual award.
- Phi Theta Kappa
Transfer students who provide proof of membership to Phi Theta Kappa receive a $1,000 annual award.
