TTU registration deadlines near

Students interested in enrolling at Tennessee Tech University for the first time this fall need to act fast. Registration deadlines are nearing.

Entering freshmen and transfer students are encouraged to apply before Aug. 1, including submitting transcripts and any other required information. A registration day for new freshmen and transfer students is scheduled for Aug. 15. Orientation programs begin that afternoon and offer new students a fun and interactive overview of services, programs, activities and opportunities across campus.

Returning students who have already pre-registered for classes have until Wednesday, Aug. 7, to pay fees without losing their schedules. Registration cannot be completed between Aug. 8 and 14.

Regular registration resumes on Friday, Aug. 16. Students can pay for classes over the web, via the phone, or in person that day. Phone and web payments will also be accepted over the weekend. Fall semester classes begin Monday, Aug. 19. Late registration also begins on the 19th, and students who register or pay fees between Aug. 19 and 27 will pay a late fee of $100.

Enrollment at TTU reached an all-time high last fall with more than 8,600 students attending. Officials in the university's Admissions Office expect an even larger enrollment this year thanks to the university's recent ranking as one of the top 10 public universities in the South by U.S. News & World Report's 2002 College Guide.
