Grant Summary

$500,000 over 36 months to extend the Transfer Admission Guarantee to the northern New England states of Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. The Transfer Guarantee is available at participating independent colleges to any student who completes an associate degree within the liberal arts and meets minimum GPA requirements. The transfer application fee is waived for all AA completers. Depending on students’ GPA tier (2.5, 3.0, and 3.5+), students are also eligible for additional incentives to transfer, including guaranteed transfer of associate degree credits and access to institutional financial aid. Participating institutions self-select a GPA tier for minimum eligibility requirements and access to additional incentives. This project is co-funded with Arthur Vining Davis Foundations and Davis Educational Foundation.
