CCU Alumni Iceland

This applies to transfer students from Menntaskoli in Iceland or Commercial College of Iceland

This Icelandic CCU alumni Scholarship carries an out-of-state waiver  for up to five (5) scholarships per year. This means that the student pays in-state tuition instead of the out-of-state tuition at the university, providing a significant reduction in tuition fees.

To be eligible, students must meet the following criteria:

  • Be admitted as a transfer student from Menntaskoli in Iceland or the Commercial College of Iceland and must provide evidence of passing the Studentspróf at at least 6.5 GPA (Icelandic grading system).
  • Have transferred into or earned at least 30 credit hours at the University after being accepted to CCU.
  • Provide a written recommendation from the President of CCU alumni Iceland.
  • Agree to take an active role in University campus life by explaining his or her plans for such involvement in University organizations and clubs and by demonstrating active involvement in school and community-based organizations in Iceland.

Further on the scholarship

The scholarship award will be offered for a maximum of six (6) semesters. Students must be enrolled as full-time, degree-seeking students to receive the award. Awards will be divided equally between the fall and spring semesters. The award may be renewed for up to two (2) years providing the recipient earns a 3.0 cumulative CCU GPA, completes 30 credits annually, meets satisfactory degree progress, and demonstrates an active role in University campus life through meaningful engagement in University organizations and clubs. This applies to both undergraduate and graduate studies.
