Application Procedure for Freshmen


 

  1. Complete the online application for Undergraduate Freshman at www.tntech.edu/applyonline by the deadlines listed at the top of this section. All first-time applicants must provide a one-time, non-refundable fee of $25.
  2. Have an official high school transcript showing coursework, grades, and a graduation date forwarded to Undergraduate Admissions. To be considered for admission during the senior year of high school, a transcript showing coursework through grade eleven (six graded semesters) is required. A final transcript must be forwarded upon graduation. If a high school diploma was not earned, a state-issued transcript of GED or HiSET scores is required. If a student has attempted any college credit (through dual-enrollment, summer courses, etc.) at any institution of higher education, such official college transcripts must be forwarded to Undergraduate Admissions.

    Official transcripts originate from the institution attended and are delivered directly to the University. Transcripts may be delivered via post or electronically through an approved vendor (see the Undergraduate Admissions website for approved vendors). Faxed transcripts are not considered official transcripts.
