How?

There are two ways you can apply for admission at UT:

Vol-in-Progress (VIP)

Log in or create your Vol-in-Progress (VIP) account at vip.utk.edu. As a VIP, you will have access to up-to-date information from UT, be able to schedule campus tours, register to attend events, and—most importantly—apply for admission to UT.
As a VIP, you can also get in touch with your UT counselors if you need help and check your application status. If you are interested in applying for scholarships, there will be a separate application available for you once you take all the necessary steps.

Common Application

If you’re a first-time freshman applicant who plans to apply to UT and other schools, you can use the Common Application. Fill out your application, choosing the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and submit it along with your documents.

NOTE: If you’d like to request a waiver for your application fee, please complete and submit the Application Fee Waiver form.
