COOKEVILLE – Tennessee Tech’s Fall 2022 application for admission opens Aug. 1. The recruitment season is beginning in earnest this year with visits planned across the state. 

“Tech’s Office of Admissions is excited to get back into high schools to help students continue their education beyond high school and join the amazing Tennessee Tech community,” said Steve Keller, Director of Admissions. “We look forward to working with students in person and seeing them begin their educational journey.”

For traditional high school students, the primary undergraduate admission requirement is based on their high school GPA with some programs and scholarships requiring ACT or SAT test scores. The important thing for students to remember is to apply early in their senior year to qualify for Tech scholarships and to have the needed time to go through the admissions process and checklists for enrollment. 

“Tennessee Tech is proud to be a test-optional university,” said Brandon Johnson, Vice President for Enrollment Management and Career Placement. “Any student who is willing to work hard and who wants to earn a world-class education should apply to Tech and know that they will be viewed as a complete person and not only as a combination of GPA and test scores.”

To apply for admission, prospective students should first visit Once there, they will need to select their student type (undergraduate, international or graduate). Once a selection is made, students will next choose what term they are applying, such as Fall 2022. Once those items are chosen, students can create their own unique log-in to complete the application process. Students are encouraged to work with their parents and high school counselors to make sure they have all the needed documents to apply, such as transcripts, test scores and application fee.

“Here at Tennessee Tech, our team of admissions counselors are always available to help,” said counselor Ayla Whittaker. “Our goal is to make the process of applying as smooth as possible for incoming students and their families.”

Tennessee Tech is ranked as a “Best National University” by U.S. News & World Report. The university offers more than 200-plus programs of study, and Tech grads leave with the least debt of all public universities in the state. In fact, based on total cost and alumni earnings, Tech provides students with the highest return on investment for any public university in Tennessee, according to PayScale.
