William McGovern is a US Marine veteran who recently completed two years of study at Pellissippi State Community College and is now set to begin classes in mechanical engineering as a transfer student at UT. This fall, UT is welcoming 1,430 transfer students—up more than 150 over last year.
Soon, students will have a new tool to help them stay on track to an on-time graduation. uTrack lays out a road map for each major so students can see which academic courses they must successfully complete—and when they must complete them—in order to graduate on time. The system will alert students if they get off track with their course work or grades.The system will go into effect in the fall for all first-time, first-year, full-time, degree-seeking students.
