Incoming Transfers Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I received an award letter in the mail but it does not list an award amount. How can I tell how much I have been offered?

The award amount can be found on your merit scholarship agreement. To access your agreement, please review the above steps. Alternatively, you can locate your award amount by logging into your myUMBC profile and selecting the “Financial Aid” card.

Q: I am the parent of a prospective transfer student. Can you tell me how much my student was offered?

Students can grant access to their student account information via Profile Sharing. Please note, we will not be able to provide you with specific account information unless the student has granted you access. Instructions on how to grant access can be found here.

Q: I have signed my merit scholarship agreement but don’t see it has disbursed to my account.

General merit scholarships disburse to student accounts about a week before the Fall and/or Spring term begins.

Q: I am part of Transfer Student Alliance, Degrees to Succeed and/or Phi Theta Kappa. Am I guaranteed to receive a transfer merit scholarship?
