Yes! The majority of our transfer students are awarded scholarships based on their academic history. Merit-based scholarships are awarded to students who have at least a cumulative 2.3 GPA and have earned at least 12 college credits.

“I wanted to come to Alverno because the staff and professors are very involved in making sure you succeed. Alverno offered me a scholarship for my grades at my previous school. I felt that my hard work had paid off, and that Alverno noticed and rewarded me. With that, I knew I had the support I was looking for in a school.”
