The University of Wyoming wants non-resident and international transfer students to know that finalizing their four-year degree is within reach. We are proud to offer the Pokes Transfer Commitment, a financial pledge that benefits incoming students who transfer to the University of Wyoming. This commitment is a merit-based financial pledge determined by a student's cumulative transfer GPA. It is offered as a placeholder and will be funded with individual scholarships that are made possible through the generosity of UW Foundation donors and/or other institutional aid. Funding of this commitment is contingent on the completion of the general application and any applicable recommended applications within WyoScholarships.
Please note: All University of Wyoming financial awards are only available to eligible admits. The awards are subject to available funding and the approval of the UW Board of Trustees; they reserve the right to change said rates at any time.
Available to first-time, entering transfer students seeking their first bachelor's degree.
GPA is calculated using grades earned in credits taken at previous institutions.
Transfer credits must be a minimum of 12 completed post-high school.
Cannot be combined with the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) Transfer Award.
|Cumulative Transfer GPA
|3.00 - 3.30
|3.31 - 3.84
|3.85 - 4.00
The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid will consider the final cumulative unweighted high school GPA for new first-time students for a potential increase in award level. To be considered, official transcripts and/or ACT/SAT scores must be received no later than the first day of class of your incoming semester. This applies to students who have confirmed enrollment by the above deadlines. Increases are subject to available funding.
This Commitment is renewable for up to 6 semesters (3 academic years) or completion of first bachelor's degree, whichever comes first.
