CHOOSE YOUR STATUS FROM THE TABS BELOW

Submit an application

Your first step is to apply for admission 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've already submitted an application and just need to pay the fee, you can do so here. (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 below.

* Currently under TBR policy B-060, application fees must be "uniformly charged" and therefore fee waivers are not available.

If you need to make a change on your existing application, please submit our application update form.

Mail transcripts

To accurately evaluate you for admissibility, you will need to submit official transcripts from your diploma-granting high school or high school equivalency (GED or HiSET). Our HiSET code is TN1001002. If you are a high school student taking dual-credit courses and/or AP exams, you will need to send these official transcripts as well. Failure to notify Tennessee Tech University of all previous post-secondary coursework is a Class A misdemeanor according to TCA 49-7-133. Freshman under the age of 21 will need official ACT or SAT scores sent if they are not posted on the high school transcript. For those that are currently enrolled in high school, we can usually make a pending decision based on a partial transcript of just 6 or 7 semesters of grades.

Official Transcripts
College transcripts must be delivered via POST directly from the issuing institution or electronically through a transcript delivery vendor. College transcripts marked "Issued to Student" are not acceptable. High school transcripts may be delivered via post or hand-carried if sealed. High school transcripts may also be scanned/emailed ( admissions@tntech.edu) or faxed (931-372-6250) directly from the issuing school if accompanied by a cover letter signed by a school official. It is recommended that international transcripts be evaluated by a member of NACES ( www.naces.org) although transcripts translated by other means may be approved in some cases.
