Transfer Advisors

Transfer advisors play an important role in guiding students. Here at UT, we appreciate the support you provide your students. We are here to provide you with information that will best allow you to guide them as they navigate the college transfer process.

Community College Partners Workshop

This conference-style event gives administrators, faculty, and staff from Tennessee’s Community Colleges the opportunity to learn about transfer initiatives at UT and interact with representatives from various departments across campus. Get a sample program from a previous workshop.

Application Process and Requirements

Students can apply through their VIP account or on the Common App.

Undergraduate Admissions utilizes a holistic application review considering all parts of the transfer student’s academic record. All grades earned in transferable academic-level coursework from every regionally accredited college attended will be considered in determining admissibility.

We are committed to reviewing all transfer applications for admission. Transfer applicants should have a minimum cumulative 2.0 grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) in transferable academic-level coursework. Students are encouraged to include a personal statement and other supporting documentation that will strengthen their application in addition to their academic coursework.

After they apply, students can check their application status online through their VIP account. The VIP account will also list any documents such as an official transcript or test scores that UT hasn’t received yet. Keep in mind that transcripts and other documents might take a while to show in the system.

For credit transfer, application process, and other important transfer application information visit the Apply section of our website.

You can also check admission deadlines.
