Current Student Advisement & Info
Below you will find information about different activities that will take place during the year, and some instructions on how to access your Tennessee Tech accounts. Please don’t hesitate to call (931-372-3600) or e-mail (email@example.com) our office if you have any questions as you get started.
Each student must meet with the Director of Graduate Programs to discuss their course selections for the following semester. This can be done via e-mail, phone or in-person meeting. You will receive an e-mail in your Tennessee Tech inbox approximately one month prior to the end of the semester to schedule an advisement time.
Once you have been advised, you will be given your alternate PIN for registration. Information concerning registration and fee payment deadlines can be found on the university calendar. State employees using a fee waiver or PC191/P-130 have delayed registration times.
Required textbooks can be located on the Tennessee Tech bookstore. For specific questions about textbooks, please contact the faculty member teaching the course.
Online students attend class via the iLearn course delivery system. You will gain access to your online courses the same day that on-campus courses are scheduled to begin. Please refer to your orientation packet for information setting up your account.
TN Tech email vs. iLearn email
You will have access to an @tntech.edu email address (your Tennessee Tech inbox) and a @elearn.tntech.edu email address (an internal email function of iLearn). Regularly check both your Tennessee Tech and iLearn emails.
The University sends official communications to all Tennessee Tech e-mail addresses. This address will receive notices about schedules, grade results, billing information, emergency alerts, important deadlines, a daily email newsletter, and all other official university information.
In addition to satisfying all degree requirements, a candidate for a degree must file an Application for Graduation at the beginning of the semester in which the degree is expected to be conferred. The deadline for the filing of the application is the second Friday after classes begin.
Quality of Work
An MBA student is required to maintain a cumulative grade average of at least B (3.0) on all courses taken for degree purposes, and must achieve a grade of B or better in BMGT 6950. Students must repeat BMGT 6950 until a grade of B or better is obtained. Other courses may be repeated at the discretion of the student, and both the original grade and the grade for the repeat will be counted in the cumulative average. (Any student earning a “C” prior to March 2019 will be required to repeat the course, per the policy in effect when the grade was awarded.) Any student receiving a D or an F in an MBA degree course shall be dismissed from the program.
Students are expected to maintain high ethical standards during their stay at Tennessee Tech University. Plagiarism (the use of someone else’s media, words, data, ideas, or other works) will not be tolerated. Students who fail to cite sources (plagiarize) may receive an “F” or a “0” for the assignment, or an “F" for the course.
Formal grade appeal procedures have been enacted by Tennessee Tech University. If a student wishes to appeal a grade, the procedure for doing so may be found in the Student Handbook.
