Transfer Students from UM-St. Louis
Students transferring from UM-St. Louis to another school:
If you are a current UM-St. Louis student, but wish to transfer to another college/university, then here are some helpful hints that will get you started.
- Visit/call UM-St. Louis Student Financial Aid and let
our office know that you are transferring to another school.
This is very important if your are transferring mid-year
and we have your financial aid set up for the entire academic
year. Our office must cancel the second half of your assistance
so your new school can process and award your financial
- Make sure your bill at UM-St. Louis is paid-in-full.
If you owe any outstanding charges to the university,
then your grade transcript will not be forwarded. Go to
the Registration Office to request a grade transcript.
A $3.00 fee must be paid for this service.
- Contact the Financial Aid Office at the school you are
transferring to so that you can find out what application
materials are required. The school will need a copy of
your FAFSA or Student Aid Report, but may also require
additional paperwork. Other schools may also have application
deadlines that you need to be aware of. In addition, be
sure you have applied for admission to that college/university
so that an award letter can be processed.
- Students who received state-sponsored assistance (i.e.
Bright Flight Scholarship, Charles Gallagher Grant, etc)
should contact the College Board for Higher Education
at 1-800-473-6757 and let them know you are transferring.
- If you currently receive assistance from an outside
agency, then be sure to contact that organization so they
know you are transferring.
- If you received loans under the Perkins or Stafford Student Loan Programs while a student at UMSL, please notify the Stafford Loan lender and/or the UMSL Loan Department (314-516-5389) to inform them of your enrollment status at another school. You may be asked to provide written confirmation of your enrollment, such as a loan deferment form certified by the Registrar of your new school. Failure to notify a lender of a change in school may cause the lender to place your loan in repayment status. Failure to make payments on a loan may in turn result in loan default.
