Fort Lewis College awards scholarships during admission to help undergraduate students finance their college education. You can receive scholarships based on academic merit through your major and many other avenues. Explore your transfer student scholarship opportunities below.
Admitted transfer students with a 3.0 or higher college-level GPA who have not previously earned a baccalaureate degree are automatically considered for merit-based tuition scholarships. Merit scholarships are renewable for up to 8 semesters or 120 credit hours, whichever comes first. You do not need to complete a separate application.
You can also receive a Merit Scholarship through the New Mexico Reciprocal Scholarship, the San Juan College Reciprocal Scholarship, or the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) Scholarship. Merit scholarships cannot be combined.
