COOKEVILLE – Tennessee Tech University’s Fall 2023 application for admission opens Aug. 1. Tech’s Presidential Scholars program will again this year provide millions of dollars in guaranteed scholarships for students who qualify and apply by Dec. 15.
For traditional high school students, the primary undergraduate admission requirement is based on high school GPA with some programs and scholarships requiring ACT or SAT test scores.
“Applying early gives students a great advantage because they are the first to receive scholarships, housing assignments and information they need to prepare for next fall,” said Karen Lykins, Interim Vice President for Enrollment Management and Career Placement and Chief Communication Officer.
To apply for admission, visit tntech.edu/apply. Once there, select your student type (undergraduate, international or graduate). Then, choose what term you are applying for, such as Fall 2023. Once you make that choice, you can create a 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 for admission, such as transcripts, test scores and application fee, but you can start the application without having all the documents available.
Tech remains test optional, so any student who is willing to work hard and wants to earn the best education in Tennessee should apply to Tech because they will be viewed as a complete person and not only as a combination of GPA and test scores.
“We had a very successful launch for our Presidential Scholars program last year,” said Lykins. “That guaranteed scholarship program is continuing this year, so students are encouraged to apply early. These generous scholarships, when combined with the state’s increased HOPE scholarships, can really make a difference in making college affordable, so it’s important you meet the deadline.”
Tennessee Tech is ranked as the number one public university in the state, according to Money Magazine, as well 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.
