REQUIREMENTS

If you left TTU on good standing and have not attended any other institutions since leaving TTU, you meet the admission requirements for readmission.

If you've attended elsewhere since leaving TTU the following requirements apply:

  • 2.00 in last full-time semester (or last 12 hours for part-time students) AND
  • 2.00 overall GPA since leaving TTU
An applicant under suspension or probation (academic or disciplinary) will not be considered for admission until a satisfactory statement has been furnished by the former college and approval given by the Admissions Review Committee of Tennessee Technological University.
What if I Don't Meet the Minimum Requirements for Admission?

Students who do not meet all of the requirements listed above may submit a letter to the Admissions Review Committee explaining their circumstances. This appeal process is a non-competitive, holistic, and individualized process where a review committee may consider some or all of the following: academic rigor of courses, core course GPA and grade trends, as well as non-cognitive elements such as an applicant's concept of self, ability to deal with adversity, long-range goals, community involvement, special interests or abilities, leadership, and support structures.

All readmission students must fill out an online application for admission.

If you are returning after a first suspension and have sat out for at least one fall or spring semester, you simply need to fill out an undergraduate application for readmission. If you wish to return after your first suspension without sitting out for a fall or spring semester OR if you wish to return after a second or subsequent suspension, you need to submit a Readmission after Suspension Form. This form needs to be submitted first to the dean or delegate of your college. The dean or delegate will submit your application to the Office of Enrollment Management for final review. If your application is approved, you will return on academic probation. More information on academic standing and admission procedures can be found here.

Submit official transcripts from all institutions attended since leaving TTU.

Transcripts can be mailed directly from the previous institution to:
TTU Admissions
P.O. Box 5006
Cookeville, TN 38505-0001
