Governor Guinn Millennium Scholarship for Transfer Students
If you are a Governor Guinn Millennium Scholar and are planning to transfer to TMCC, you do not need to submit a special application to receive your Millennium Scholarship. Your student record should be automatically identified as an eligible Millennium Scholar.
To ensure that your scholarship funds are disbursed in a timely manner, you must complete the following steps:
Apply to TMCC and Declare a Major
To apply for admission to TMCC, you need to submit an application to admission and records. You can declare a major on your application. Please note if you are applying for a special program such as nursing or dental hygiene, there may be additional steps you must complete to enroll in the program.
If you have already been admitted to TMCC, check your declared major via MyTMCC by logging in and choosing the "Admission Status" in the left-hand column. If your major is listed as "Undecided," "Personal Interest" or "Job Upgrade" you need to declare a new major. To declare a major, you must submit the degree/emphasis change form to the admissions and records office.
Register for Classes
Register for at least six qualifying credits via MyTMCC. Keep in mind that remedial courses (those numbered under 100) and Workforce Development and Continuing Education classes may not be paid by your Millennium Scholarship Funds.
To continue to receive your Millennium Scholarship, you must maintain your eligibility. At TMCC, you must satisfactorily complete six credits in each fall and spring semester in which you are enrolled and meet the GPA requirement for your graduating class. (See the Millennium Web page for detailed information about program eligibility). Please be aware if you lost eligibility at your previous institution, you will not be eligible for Millennium at TMCC until the credits are made up and/or GPA is raised.
If you have already completed a FAFSA for the current year, you do not have to complete a new FAFSA if you are transferring during the same academic year. You do, however, have a few important tasks to complete.
