We are committed to reviewing all transfer applications for admission. Transfer applicants should have a minimum cumulative 2.0 grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) in transferable academic-level coursework. Some majors have capacity limits which result in very few transfer admissions into those majors – even for well-qualified students. For such majors, those academic colleges or departments may require greater than a 2.0 for acceptance into certain programs.
UT is required to have an official transcript on file from each college an applicant has attended, even if it was a summer school or dual-enrollment course at a community college.
If you have earned 24 or less transferable college level hours, your application will be reviewed holistically based on your high school and transfer GPA, ACT/SAT scores, intended major, and other factors.
Letters of Recommendation:
You are not required to submit letters of recommendation. However, one from a teacher, professor, adviser, or employer that provides information or perspectives about your academic ability will be helpful in the application review process.
Students are encouraged to include personal statements and any other supporting documentation that will strengthen their application in addition to their academic coursework.
There is a $50.00 non-refundable application fee.
An interview is not required.
Associates Degree Required:
Completion of an associate degree from a TN community college or TTP is not required but will be given priority consideration. (Completion of an associate degree or a pathway is not a guarantee of admission to UT or to a specific program.)
The colleges below have special admission requirements you should carefully consider when applying for admission.
Architecture & Design; Haslam College of Business; Education, Health, and Human Sciences; Engineering; Nursing; Online Social Work
