Undergraduate Admissions

Transfer Student Scholarships

At SPU, we believe every student deserves to have access to a nationally-ranked, private college education - and we are committed to removing cost barriers. In fact, we have lowered our tuition by 25%, starting Fall 2021, through Tuition Reimagined. In addition, we have scholarships specifically designed for transfer students!

Note: If you have not yet graduated from high school, take a look at our First-Year Student Scholarships. Running Start, or other dual-enrolled high school students, are considered for First-Year Scholarships only.

To receive priority financial aid for Winter Quarter, complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) or WASFA (Washington Application for State Financial Aid) and an SPU Undergraduate Application for admission by April 1st.
