Transfer Student Life
Hofstra is the right choice for transfer students.
All admitted students are reviewed for merit-based scholarships at the time of acceptance, so no additional application is necessary. Scholarships are determined by the information supplied in your application and by the cumulative GPA earned at the time of admission. Priority is given to students who complete their application by March 1 for fall and November 15 for spring. Merit-based scholarships are subject to change, and exact amounts vary from semester to semester. All scholarships are awarded on a funds-available basis.
