PROGRAM DETAILS

Second Chance Transfer Students are defined as being prior DSU Admits, who are returning to Dixie after attending another institution.

Transfer Students who are transferring less than 24 credits will be awarded a Freshman Academic Scholarship based on their High School GPA, with no consideration given to class rank. Resident Students in this situation cannot qualify for higher than the Trustees Scholarship. Non-Resident Students in this situation cannot qualify for higher than the Non-Resident Founders Scholarship.

Transfer Students with a Bachelors’ Degree or higher, and students who are transferring in excess of 150 credit hours are not eligible for academic scholarships.

Reduced Credit Hour Requirements: Students accepted into approved cohort programs may find that their cohort requires less than 15 credit hours of enrollment (yet is still considered full-time due to the workload). In such cases, the applicant may request that their scholarship requirement be reduced. All such requests must be made to the Scholarship Office: scholarships@dixie.edu.

Non-Resident Students will be automatically considered upon full admission to Dixie but may also physically apply for the WUE, Red Rocks, Good Neighbor & Dixie Half Merit awards here.
