Admission as a Special Undergraduate Student


A Special Undergraduate student is not a candidate for a degree; however, this classification allows one to register for undergraduate courses, obtain grades, and have these grades recorded on an official University transcript. This classification includes students who have and have not yet received a bachelor’s degree. Applicants who are not currently in good standing at the last college attended cannot be admitted as a Special Undergraduate student. Admission as a Special Undergraduate student may be granted a person if it appears that he or she may successfully engage in college work and that enrollment will be beneficial to the person and to the University.
Admission as a Special Undergraduate Student does not guarantee enrollment in any course. After gaining admission, the student is subject to normal procedures for registering for courses. Application for admission to this classification should be filed at least thirty (30) days prior to the beginning of the semester in which enrollment is desired. All fees are the same as for regular students.
All individuals wishing to be admitted in this classification are required to submit an application for admission (available online at www.tntech.edu/applyonline) and select “Non-Degree Seeking/Special” as a major and indicate “Special” status. The ACCUPLACER assessment is required for students enrolling in English or mathematics courses. Special students are not eligible for federal and state financial aid.
