Application Procedures for Transfer Students

  1. Complete the online application for Undergraduate Transfers at www.tntech.edu/apply by the deadlines listed at the top of this section.
  2. All first-time applicants must provide a one-time, non-refundable fee of $25. If the applicant has previously paid the UG application fee, then the applicant is not required to pay the UG application fee again.
  3. Submit official transcripts of all college work completed and a partial transcript if presently enrolled in coursework. Tentative admission may be granted on the basis of partial transcripts if the quality of work at previous institutions clearly meets admission requirements. Submit official final transcripts when all work is completed. Transcripts of all work attempted at the college-level must be submitted. Final admission is granted only after all transcripts and credentials are received.

Official transcripts must 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 or emailed transcripts that are sent by the student or another person who is not an official representative of the academic institution are not considered official transcripts.
