Transfer / Second Degree Student Application

Transfer applicants are those students who have graduated from high school or received a GED and have earned college credit.

Second degree applicants are students who hold a baccalaureate degree, but wish to complete an additional degree at the University of Evansville.

The application deadline for Fall 2014 is August 1, 2014. Students may apply after that time, but will be accepted on a space-available basis.

Please send the following items to:

Financial Aid and Scholarships for Transfer and Second Degree Students

Financial aid and scholarships for transfer students are determined on an individual basis. To be considered for federal, state, and University funding, you should submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This form is available online at

Refer to the scholarship and financial aid section of this application to provide the necessary information and to check the appropriate scholarships for which you wish to be considered. Students who qualify for more than one University award will automatically receive the one of the highest value. These scholarships are for full-time students in traditional undergraduate degree programs.

Students seeking a second baccalaureate degree, unless they are military veterans participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program, are ineligible for University scholarship and grants. However, loans may be available depending upon your situation. To be considered for loans, you should submit the FAFSA.

Application Deadline and Admission Deposit

We realize that often the decision to enroll may not be made until shortly before the semester actually begins. However, the earlier you apply and deposit, the better your chances are for campus housing, financial aid, scholarships, and class selection. Therefore, applications and admission deposits are accepted on a rolling basis.

Once you are admitted and decide to attend the University of Evansville, it is important that you submit your $300 deposit* as soon as possible. The deposit reserves your place at the University and in University housing. It also covers costs related to advising and registration. If you do not plan to live in University housing, the balance of your deposit will be credited toward your tuition costs. Information about academic advising, class registration, and housing will be sent to you once your deposit is received. Housing is assigned on a space-available basis. Early application and deposit are strongly recommended.
