During the past year, UT placed full-time admissions counselors focusing on transfer students in Memphis and Nashville. There are two transfer counselors in Knoxville.
The freshman class has an average ACT score of 27 and a high school GPA of 3.89.
Students enrolled in Volunteer Bridge—a invitation-only dual-enrollment program between Pellissippi State Community College and UT—will find it easier to get their associate’s degree while continuing their college studies.
Our new transfer transition guides are eight-semester plans that outline the courses community college students need to take to make the seamless jump to UT to finish their bachelor’s degree.
Incoming first-year students with a minimum 3.8 (UT Weighted Core GPA) who apply for admission by December 1 for the fall 2015 semester are eligible. You must matriculate for fall semester immediately following your graduation from high school.

I work with transfer students, and I enjoy interacting with the diverse student population that can be found in the community college system. It is great to be able to give people options that will ultimately change the future not only for themselves but for future generations who follow them.
College is one of the most memorable times in your life. It’s imperative that you take advantage of opportunities such as internships, study abroad, student organizations, and great academic courses. You don’t want to graduate and wish that you had done this or that.
UT is a place where a student can be challenged academically, while enjoying the robust culture of the surrounding Knoxville community. It is not often you visit a foreign place and immediately feel at home, but from the first day on campus at University of Tennessee, I felt right at home.
I met more people while I was an undergraduate than I ever thought possible, and they became my best friends. I also discovered what I truly care about and how to make a difference. UT is responsible for who I am today and who I will be in the future.
I love talking to prospective students and their families. Because of the great experience I had as an undergraduate at UT, I love being able to tell them about the experience that awaits. Selecting a university is one of the most important decisions you can make and I’m so glad to be a part of that!
Take the time to figure out what really sets you apart from others, and use those skills and attributes to your advantage in everything you do. Whether it’s when you’re applying to schools or when you’re applying for jobs, figure out your story, find your voice, and own it.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions! Seek answers and make UT yours!
I am so excited to be a part of the Big Orange family and I can’t wait to meet you. My advice to you, as you are preparing for college, is to visit college campuses! When you’re in the right place you will know it. Come to our campus for a tour and one of our events and see what Rocky Top is all about!
I have about forty great colleagues in the Admissions Office, and I enjoy meeting prospective students and families and sharing with them information about the great opportunities offered at UT.
Take advantage of all the opportunities that college has to offer. From job fairs to joining organizations, step outside of your comfort zone and experience something you wouldn’t normally do. College really is the best four years of your life, and it forces you to learn so many new things about yourself. Buckle up and get ready for the ride!
We welcome Christian Brown as our new Regional Counselor for IA, IL, IN, MN, and WI.
I received many college admissions and scholarship offers, but my campus visit to UT finally convinced me that it was the place I wanted to go to college. Make an official visit to UT and hopefully you’ll feel the same way I did.
I love that I get to help prospective students in their college decision and let them know all the wonderful things that the University of Tennessee can offer them. UT is such an exciting place to go to school. I love that I can be a small part in helping someone get here.
Throughout my time living in Knoxville, I would say it has big city amenities but a small town feel. The sense of community in Knoxville is very strong. Also, you will never run out of things to do, see or explore here in Knoxville. Everything from the growing downtown life to various outdoor activities, Knoxville has something for everyone.
Transfer students are a unique component to the admissions process but play such a valuable role here at UT. I will be working with you every step of the way because I am committed to making sure you have a seamless transfer but also an enjoyable experience to UT!!!
