What does it mean when I am being asked to provide a proof of citizenship?
Proof of citizenship, or EVEA, is required for all students to ensure lawful presence in the U.S. and also determines your tuition rate. You can fulfill your EVEA requirement by filling out the FAFSA, submitting a photocopy of your valid Tennessee driver's license, or submitting one of the other valid approved documents. For more information on EVEA and approved documents, click here.

How do I change the semester I start?
If you have applied within the last year and your personal information has not changed, you can fill out an Update Application Form. If you last applied more than a year ago, or need to update information such as address, phone number, or schools attended, you will need to reapply for the semester you'd like to begin at Tech.

How can I send my transcripts?
All transcripts must be sealed, issued to Tennessee Tech, and mailed to:

Office of Undergraduate Admissions
Campus Box 5006
Cookeville, TN 38505
 

Some transcripts may be submitted electronically through an approved service such as Clearinghouse. We also accept official emailed high school transcripts, as long as they come directly from a high school administrator's email address. College transcripts are not considered official if sent via email.
