|Good Standing and Renewal Requirements
The Transfer Tuition Discount may be renewed each year, provided you maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA and complete at least twenty-four (24) credit hours during the two semesters of the academic year (i.e., fall and spring semesters).
To remain in good standing and continue to receive the Transfer Tuition Discount, you must be enrolled as a full-time student, registering for a minimum of 12 credit hours each semester. Failure to maintain full-time status during a semester will result in the cancellation of your Transfer Tuition Discount.
UOSFA will review your standing for these requirements each year at the end of the spring semester. Failure to meet the good standing and renewal requirements will result in loss of the Transfer Tuition Discount. Once lost, the Transfer Tuition Discount cannot be regained.
Students must be enrolled full-time (at least 12 credit hours) by the last day to register for full-term courses each semester in order to be eligible to receive their scholarship award for the term. Failure to be full-time by the last day to register for full-term courses will result in the cancellation of your award and will impact your renewal eligibility.

Newly accepted students who wish to defer their start date to a subsequent semester, and to request the Transfer Tuition Discount be held, should first request an admission deferment through the Office of Admissions at admissions.utah.edu/apply/deferment.
A Transfer Tuition Discount deferment may result in a change in the amount and/or value of the award depending upon the subsequent term of entry or matriculation.
Transfer Tuition Discount recipients considering a deferment should confirm by May 1, 2023 their intent to enroll in order to accept their award. Students have until the first day of classes (August 21, 2023) to apply for a deferment. Students seeking deferment should submit their enrollment deposit to secure their seat as a matriculated student. You must submit the enrollment deposit, or if the enrollment deposit is a financial challenge you may request a deposit extension, at admissions.utah.edu/confirm.
The University Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (UOSFA) will, in extenuating circumstances, allow a student to take a Leave of Absence from a scholarship once they are a continuing student. A continuing student will need to work with the Registrar’s Office on any type of Leave of Absence (https://registrar.utah.edu/handbook/leave.php) and be approved for a Leave of Absence through the official processes.
