Wittenberg is committed to making it affordable to complete your degree. Part of this commitment includes merit awards for our transfer students. After a holistic review of a student’s admission application, Wittenberg University automatically rewards your achievements at the time of acceptance. There is no separate application to be considered for our merit awards. All Wittenberg University Merit Awards for Transfer Students are renewable for up to three years. Students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress for financial aid eligibility to renew all scholarships, annually. Eligibility for these awards is not a guarantee of admission to Wittenberg. All Wittenberg merit awards are calculated based on the student’s cumulative grade point average at the time of admission.* Merit awards will not be upgraded if improved grade point average or test score information is submitted for review. The listed merit awards below are available to eligible students enrolling at Wittenberg during the Fall 2024 and Spring 2025 entrance terms.
