Transfer Commuter Scholarship

Transfer Commuter Online Application

This scholarship is awarded by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions to new transfer students who do not plan to live on campus. Each scholarship provides $2,000 per semester for full-time students toward tuition only. 

The scholarship will be renewable for Fall, Spring, and Summer terms if the student remains eligible. Students will be eligible for the scholarship as long as their total completed credit hours have not reached 120 hours. The Office of Financial Aid will monitor these students for eligibility. Students who hold a bachelor’s degree may not apply. The scholarship is void once the student withdraws from DBU; henceforth the student will not be eligible for the Transfer Commuter Scholarship if he or she applies for readmission to the university.

Candidates for this scholarship will be evaluated on the basis of academic ability, demonstrated Christian leadership capabilities, and financial need.
