Lawrence and UW Colleges

In 2014, Lawrence University and the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh-Fox Cities campus entered into a partnership designed to facilitate the transfer from the two-year college system of students wishing to pursue a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Music degree at Lawrence University.  We believe that transfer students from local institutions help to strengthen our bonds with the community in which we live and bring different experiences and perspectives to academic work.

Scholarships and Financial Aid Information

Lawrence values transfer students for the different perspectives they bring that enrich not only their own educational experiences but those of other students. 

Similar to First-Year students, all Transfer students are eligible for annually renewable merit scholarships that range up to half tuition, based on the pool of applicants and strength of their application. Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society members and students who transfer from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh-Fox Cities are eligible for a $31,000 renewable scholarship upon applying to Lawrence University.
