Financial Aid

Whether you have used Financial Aid before or not, as a transfer student we want you to know about all your options and resources to help finance your education. 

In order to receive financial aid, you must apply each year you are in college. If you don't think you qualify, try anyway. You may have more options than you think. Generally, the earlier you apply, the better your chances of receiving aid. 


UW-River Falls awards more than $2.1 million each year to high-achieving students. The $4,000 Falcon Transfer Scholarship is an excellent opportunity to apply for if your GPA at your most recent college is a 3.5 or higher. More opportunities include:
