SCHOLARSHIPS

    Don't forget to apply for scholarships! We recommend that all students, both incoming and current, apply for scholarships each year by the deadline. Information on deadlines and help with the scholarship process is available on the Scholarships Office page. It's typically a quick online application, and departments have additional application requirements.

    You can begin the scholarship application (apply through Eagle Online) process after acceptance by using your student email login credentials.

    For more information, please visit the Scholarships website.

HOUSING

    Many Tennessee Tech graduates say that living on campus was the most memorable experience they had in college!

    Applications for University housing opens up on Oct. 1 for the following academic year. You must be admitted to Tech and have your student email set up in order to apply. Also, please be prepared to pay the $200 pre-payment.

    Signing up for University housing can be done by signing up through the Tech's Online Housing Portal.

    The University requires all students to live on campus if they:

    • live outside of 50 miles from TTU, AND
    • have less than 2 full-time semesters of college-level coursework, AND
    • are under the age of 21

FINANCIAL AID
(FAFSA)

    Most of our students qualify for some type of financial aid, whether it be be in the form of the Tennessee HOPE Lottery Scholarship program, Federal Pell Grants, or different types of loans.

    Be sure to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to see what aid you can qualify for. We encourage you to fill out the FAFSA as soon as you are able for the aid year you are attending.

    You may add our school code to your FAFSA even if you haven't applied yet, though you will not receive information about aid eligibility until you have been admitted. TTU FAFSA Code = 003523

    Once admitted and we have received your FAFSA information, then you can log onto your Eagle Online account, where you will see a "Financial Aid" tab. This is where you will see if there are any outstanding requirements or any awards posted on your account. For more information, please visit the Office of Financial Aid.


HEALTH FORMS

TENNESSEE ELIGIBILITY VERIFICATION FOR ENTITLEMENTS ACT (EVEA)

    This act (TCA 4-58-101 et seq.) was passed by the Tennessee legislature on October 1, 2012 and is effective for all students applying for admission for terms beginning Spring 2013 and later. The EVEA requires state public institutions of higher education to verify that persons seeking a “state public benefit” (like in-state tuition) are either a “United States citizen” or “lawfully present” in the United States.

    The primary and recommended way to have your U.S. citizenship or eligible non-citizenship status verified is by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you have no plans of completing a FAFSA, but would like to receive a state benefit, click here to read more about alternative documentation.


ORIENTATION

    To ease your transition to Tech, students will attend new student orientation. During orientation, students will be exposed to campus support services, academic information, and educational and extracurricular opportunities offered by the University. Additionally, this is how you will finalize your enrollment to Tech.

    Please visit the Office of New Student & Family Programs website for more information regarding orientation programs and your next steps as a Golden Eagle.
