Future Students: Transfer Student Merit Aid
Schreiner offers competitive academic scholarships to transfer students ranging from $5,000 to $9,000 per year depending on the GPA you are transferring in.
Transfer scholarships are awarded when students are accepted to Schreiner University and are transferring from another university. A separate scholarship application is not required.
These merit scholarships are agreements between the student and Schreiner University and are good for up to 4 years consecutively. We expect our students to graduate in 4 years or sooner.
An additional scholarship of $1000 is awarded to students who are active members of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), the international honors society in community colleges. Notify your admissions counselor if that is a possibility.
Also, students who have attended Alamo Colleges are eligible for another grant of $1000.
Schreiner puts some of our own money in merit based funds, but also in need based aid and performance based aid. In this way, we insure that every student has the capability of receiving some form of “free money” to help pay for their education.
Finally, we offer an Outside Scholarship Program where our Financial Aid office actively works with students on applying for outside scholarships. Before you are an active Schreiner student, there are a couple of ways for you to get this information. You can befriend us on Facebook and receive those notifications as soon as the current students do, or you can watch for our group emails to come out.
All Scholarships and Grants are listed and explained on the FAQs page.
The Office of Financial Aid at Schreiner University is committed to assisting students in obtaining the best financial aid award possible. However, it is the student’s responsibility to comply with all requirements necessary to complete the financial aid process. In addition, the Office of Financial Aid is not responsible for the student's financial obligations to Schreiner University. Each student must verify their account balance and make arrangements for any amounts not covered by financial aid.
