REQUIREMENTS

To accurately evaluate for admissibility, you will need to submit official transcripts from your diploma-granting high school or high school equivalency (GED or HiSET*).

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.

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.

Failure to notify Tennessee Tech of all previous post-secondary coursework is a Class A misdemeanor according to TCA 49-7-133.
