Transfer Cardinal Commitment Grant
The University of Louisville is excited to offer the Cardinal Commitment Grant to transfer students from the state of Kentucky. This grant will provide 100% tuition coverage for students who demonstrate success in the classroom and the financial support needed to transfer to a four-year university.
- be admitted to the University of Louisville as a new undergraduate, degree-seeking transfer student
- have earned a minimum of 48 transferable hours
- have a cumulative transfer GPA of 2.5 or higher
- ensure full-time enrollment (12+ hours per semester)
- complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for each academic year, and have it on file with the university
- be a resident of Kentucky
- be Pell-eligible
Eligible students are identified and awarded automatically; offer amounts are calculated taking into consideration all federal and state need-based grants, KEES as well as university and institutional aid. Cardinal Commitment Grants will be available until funding is exhausted.
The University of Louisville will continue to award the Cardinal Commitment Grant each semester until the student's first bachelor's degree is awarded. To remain eligible, the student should:
- be enrolled full time each semester to receive the award.
- maintain continuous attendance (does not include summers)
- file a FAFSA each year
- Must meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy
*The award amount is locked based on the Cardinal Commitment Grant amount offered in the students' first year at UofL.
**Change in federal or state aid, including Pell, SEOG, CAP, KEES or institutional merit aid does not result in an increased or decreased award in future semesters.
***The Cardinal Commitment is only awarded for fall and spring semesters, not summer.
SPECIAL NOTE FOR ONLINE PROGRAM STUDENTS: Student enrolled in a 100% online program are limited to a 12-credit hour award. Additional credit hours taken above 12 credit hours are charged the online per credit hour rate. The Cardinal Commitment Grant will not be adjusted to cover this additional tuition.
