How to Maintain Your DSF Scholarship When Transferring
DSF Finalists who are awarded a DSF Scholarship during the Fall 2017 term may be considered for a Winter/Spring award at a different DSF partner college if they transfer and submit the Mid-Year Transfer Form to DSF by February 1, 2018 and the following conditions are met:
- A transfer is required to stay on track for your degree pathway:
- You graduated with a certificate or associate’s degree in the Fall or Winter term and are transferring to a different DSF partner college to continue on your program’s degree path in the Winter or Spring term; or
- You have completed all basic requirements at your current institution and must transfer to a different DSF partner college to complete your degree program (i.e. completed all course requirements at a 2-year institution and transferring to a 4-year institution to stay on track for a bachelor’s degree); or
- After careful consideration of the potential impact of your transfer, you have decided that transferring to a different partner college will better allow you to stay on track for your degree based on academic/financial/social fit.
- Received a DSF Scholarship award in the Fall term (or the only reason you did not qualify for a Fall award was because your years of eligibility at your Fall college type had expired); and
- Met Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) during the Fall term; and
- Completed your DSF Student Success Requirement (SSR) during the Fall term; and
- Completed your financial aid file at your new institution by February 1.
The Mid-Year Transfer Form requires the signatures of the Campus Contacts from both your Fall/Winter college and your new college certifying that your transfer is required to stay on track for your degree pathway.
