It’s time for students who want to attend the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, to turn in their college admissions materials.
The university’s priority admissions deadline—which incoming freshmen must meet to be considered for competitive scholarships and the Chancellor’s Honors Program—is November 1.
The regular application deadline for the 2013-2014 academic year is December 1.
“We hope high school seniors and parents have these important deadlines marked on their calendars so there’s no last-minute crunch,” said Richard Bayer, assistant provost and director of enrollment services. Bayer said he wants to stress that while UT is committed to excellence, it’s also committed to being accessible.
“UT is looking for the best and brightest students to make up our next freshman class,” he said. “And we’re not just talking about grade-point averages and ACT scores; rather, we’re talking about the whole range of special abilities, characteristics, and talents that students can bring to our campus. Prospective students also can demonstrate their ability to succeed at UT by showing us a healthy combination of grades and extracurricular activities, along with their personal statements and a letter of recommendation.”
Students will be notified of their admission status beginning in mid-November but no later than March 25.
Here are two other important deadlines to mark on the calendar:
- February 15 is the filing deadline for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Applying for admission and completing the FAFSA form is all students need to do to be eligible for Pledge scholarships and Achieve the Dream grants.
- May 1 is the deadline for admitted students to confirm their attendance by paying a nonrefundable deposit of $250.
