Admissions Programs & Events
The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, hosts programs throughout the year to share information with prospective students and their families, and give them the opportunity to meet with UT staff, faculty, students, and UT graduates. We look forward to meeting you on your visit to campus or at one of our many programs, school visits, or college fairs across the nation.
Programs for Prospective Students
Our fall program for high school seniors will be held on two dates this fall—October 6 and October 27. Become a UT VIP at vip.utk.edu and register!
Hear about the campus experience from our students, take a tour of campus and visit one of our suite-style residence halls, and browse the displays and get information at our campus fair in the T-RECS building.
Coming to campus for Open House? We've posted some directions here.
High school students and their families are invited to come to campus on selected Saturdays for our introduction to the college search—Volunteer Days. Meet with our staff and student ambassadors to jump start your exploration of higher education options, beginning at UT.
Programs for High Achieving Students
As the academic profile of UT’s entering freshman classes continues to climb, we know that more and more bright students who have worked hard and achieved much are discovering the great opportunities that wait for them at UT Knoxville. Students and families are invited to our fall events based upon ACT or SAT score information that we have received from the testing companies. If you have achieved at least a 29 ACT (1300 SAT CR+M), you will be hearing from us if we have your scores on record.
We host students and parents at three events in the fall, and invitations are mailed in early September. This day-long program includes academic showcases in areas of student academic interest; honors program presentations; student lunches with honors students; parents lunches with UT faculty, staff, and advisors; an extensive browse session; and special sessions on study abroad and health-profession majors.
Alumni Hosted Receptions
The UT Volunteer Alumni Network, a dedicated group of UT graduates, help coordinate and host events on weekends and evenings at community centers and private homes across Tennessee each fall. Faculty, staff, and honors students from UT Knoxville bring a taste of the honors experience to these programs.
Each year, UT Knoxville hosts programs for students of all backgrounds and interests, including several that address the needs of communities across Tennessee.
Fall programs for high school seniors, hosted by the UT Admissions Office, include a campus visit for Tennessee Promise high school seniors and Follow ME2UT campus visits (offered Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in October and November).
In the spring, Sneak Peek is for high school juniors, and JUMP (Join the University’s Minority Program) is for admitted high school seniors and their parents. These programs are offered by invitation only.
The UT Knoxville regional admissions office in Memphis sponsors many programs for students in that area, including ACT/SAT preparation workshops on September 20 (juniors and seniors) and March 7 (sophomores and juniors). Contact the Memphis office for details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
