Transfer Admissions


Announcing the UB Guarantee

The University of Bridgeport is committed to keeping college affordable and is now introducing the UB Guarantee, a scholarship for full-time domestic freshman and transfer students. An impressive 99 percent of UB students receive financial aid, academic scholarships, and need-based awards.

UB Guarantee ensures that first-time, full-time domestic freshman students residing on campus are awarded $10,000 per year, or $5,000 per year for commuter students who live within a 30-mile radius of campus. All full-time domestic transfer students are awarded $7,500 per year. The UB Guarantee is valid for four academic years or eight semesters and is directly applied to tuition. In addition, the University provides merit-based scholarships up to $20,000.
