Gold & Blue Promise Could Make Transferring To Limestone Tuition Free

Gold & Blue Promise

Limestone Transfer Program

Limestone’s Gold & Blue Promise makes it possible for qualifying Day Campus transfer students to realize their dreams of earning a four-year degree TUITION FREE. Our Academic Scholarships make transferring as a Limestone University Day Campus student very affordable.

Transfer students with a grade point average of 3.6 or higher automatically qualify for Limestone’s $12,500 “Gold & Blue Promise” scholarship, regardless of family income level.

From there, we combine all sources of scholarship and grant awards to count toward covering the student’s cost of tuition.

Students who receive the Gold & Blue Promise scholarship and also qualify for the South Carolina LIFE Scholarship, South Carolina Tuition Grant, and the maximum Federal Pell Grant, can have their tuition covered in full with no out-of-pocket costs (excluding fees, books, and excluding room and board for students who wish to reside in campus housing).

Online Program students are not eligible for Gold & Blue Promise scholarship funding.

Since 1845, Limestone’s mission has been to educate students from diverse backgrounds in the liberal arts and selected professional disciplines. In a nurturing, supportive environment, Limestone offers opportunities for personal and professional growth to individuals who may find access to higher education difficult.
