Scholarships & Financial Aid

Transfer Scholarships

Marquette University offers a number of transfer-specific merit-based scholarships to help offset the cost of attendance. These awards celebrate the academic achievement of students transferring to Marquette to complete their undergraduate degrees.

Transfer scholarships can be used for tuition only, are awarded to students beginning in either the fall or spring semesters and are stackable unless otherwise stated. The combination of Marquette scholarships and/or grants cannot exceed tuition and may affect other need-based aid.

Full-time admitted transfer applicants earning their first bachelor's degree are automatically considered for the Père Marquette Award. Notification of that award is made in the letter of admission. All additional scholarships (listed below) require a separate application which can be accessed using the same login credentials as you use for your student status page.
