Fall 2024 Appeals

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville received a high volume of applications every year, and as such, our admissions process is competitive and academically selective. Due to the limited space available on campus, not all applicants will be offered admission. Each applicant is important to us and is reviewed at least twice by the admissions committee using a holistic review process. It is unlikely for the admission appeal committee to grant an admissions appeal because of the thorough application review process. UT only considers granting an appeal if new and compelling information is provided.

To Request an Appeal

Please send a request summarizing the new and compelling information that you feel positively impacts your admissions decision to admissionsappeals@utk.edu. All requests to appeal must be written by the student and received by March 12, 2024

Next Steps

  • Your request will either:
    • Move forward in the appeal request process 
    • Be declined 

If your request moves forward in the appeal request process, you must complete the appeal form in your Go Vols Portal under the Resources tab. This appeal form does require additional documentation. More information can be found in the Go Vols Portal. This form and additional documentation must be completed by March 26, 2024. Students can expect to receive an appeal decision by April 15, 2024. All decisions are final.

Future Transfer Opportunities

It is unlikely for the admission appeal committee to fully grant an admissions appeal because of the thorough application review process. If you begin the pursuit of your academic and career goals at another university, we hope you will consider applying as a transfer student to complete your degree at UT.

Each year, UT welcomes more than a thousand transfer students to the Volunteer family. More information about programs, opportunities, and scholarships available for transfer students can be found at transfer.utk.edu.
