Submit an application
The quickest and easiest way to apply is by using our online application. At the end of the application, you can simply submit the $25 non-refundable application fee by using a credit card. (If you have ever paid the undergraduate application fee to TTU before, you do not need to do so again.) If you wish to not pay with a credit card, you can mail us a check or money order for the $25 application fee to the address listed below.
(A paper application is also available, but please note that submitting a paper application will add 5-7 days processing time. Application fees for paper applications can only be made by mailing a $25 check or money order to the address listed below.)
To accurately evaluate you for admissibility, you will need to submit official transcripts from your diploma-granting high school or GED and all colleges in which you were ever enrolled (including transcripts from dual-credit courses and/or AP exams). If you have less than 24 transferrable college-level hours, we may also need recent ACT/SAT scores (or COMPASS scores if over 21 with no recent college-level math, English and reading courses). For those that are currently enrolled in college, we can sometimes make a pending decision while you are enrolled in your last semester.
Hand-delivered transcripts, transcripts addressed to the student or marked "Issued to Student" or faxed copies of transcripts are not considered official for admission purposes. To be considered as "official transcripts," they must be mailed via US Postal Mail directly from the institution. Transcripts from institutions not residing in the U.S. must have coursework evaluated by a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) www.naces.org. A course by course evaluation is required for any transfer credit to be awarded.
Send any materials via mail to:

Now what? Well, we've got a whole list that will keep you ahead of the game with the Enrollment Checklist including scholarships, financial aid, health forms, and more! Students with more than 24 hours of college-level transfer credit taken after high school are not required to attend an orientation and can simply contact their academic department to register for classes. If you are 21 years of age or younger and have less than 24 hours of college-level transfer credit, please visit the SOAR page to learn more about student orientation.

The TTU College of Education offers its Elementary Education Licensure program on the campuses of Pellissippi State (Hardin Valley), Roane State (Crossville, Harriman, Oak Ridge, and Scott County), Motlow (McMinnville and Moore County) and Chattanooga State.

On your admissions application, be sure to indicate the campus at which you would like to participate in the "For 2+2 Education students" area of the "Additional Information" or write it in above your major if you're filling out the paper application. The major that you will need to select is "Multidisciplinary Studies" with a concentration in "Elementary Education."
Be sure to complete the application procedure for Teacher Education as well. Their application deadline for each Fall cohort is January 31. Since you'll be enrolled in TTU's classes you'll also need to complete the first two forms listed here: www.tntech.edu/healthservices/forms/.
