Take a look at all of the opportunities available for transfer students to help finance their engineering education.

Incoming Transfer Scholarships

Scholarships through the College of Engineering are awarded to incoming transfer students on the basis of academic ability as measured by ACT or SAT scores (if taken), grades earned in basic program courses at transfer school(s), and essay responses.

Students must apply to be considered for transfer merit awards.

How to Apply

Our scholarship applications are through a system called OneApp.

What account do I use to sign into OneApp?

  • Students who have already accepted their offer of admission will use their Net-ID account [netid]@iastate.edu.
  • If you have been admitted to Iowa State, but have not yet accepted your offer of admission, you will use your Admissions account.
  • Your Admissions account was created when you either registered for a campus visit or submitted your application for admission. You will be asked to convert your Admissions account to a Net-ID after you accept your offer of admission.

Register for a NetID 

  • After you have accepted your offer of admission, the next time you sign into your My Account page with your Admissions account, you will be prompted to register your Net-ID.
  • Use your 9 digit University ID to register.
  • Found in the acceptance packet that was mailed to you.
    • If you lost your packet, call our Admissions Office at 800-262-3810. (For security purposes, University IDs are not given via email.)
    • Contact the Solution Center if you experience a problem registering.
  • A confirmation screen will appear if you have successfully registered your Net-ID and converted your existing Admissions account to your university Net-ID. Your new Net-ID should be used to sign into all university systems.
  • It can sometimes take overnight for the account to become fully activated. It is recommended to wait overnight and attempt your first login the following day after creating the Net-ID.
