Our confirmation site is now closed.

The University of Tennessee has received a record number of applications and confirmations this year. As such, our confirmation process is now closed to guarantee we can accommodate the number of students who will be attending Rocky Top this fall.

If you would like to be on our waitlist or explore other options to attend UT, please let us know by logging into your VIP Portal, navigating to the Resources tab, and filling out the Waitlist Request form to let us know your decision. You have three options to attend UT, listed below.


Be placed on the Fall 2021 Waitlist

If you choose to be on the waitlist, you can also update your admission to Spring 2022. If you qualified for the Beacon, Tennessee Explore, or Volunteer scholarships, your awards will be carried over to Spring 2022. If space becomes available for Fall 2021, we will notify you immediately.

Update your admission to Spring 2022

If you don’t want to be placed on a waitlist for Fall 2021, you can update your admission to Spring 2022. If you qualified for the Beacon, Tennessee Explore, or Volunteer scholarships, your awards will be carried over to Spring 2022, and you will remain an incoming first-year student as long as you do not enroll in another college or university.

Participate in the Verto Education program

If you do not want to be on the waitlist for Fall 2021, you can choose to study abroad during the fall semester and return to UT in the spring. If you qualified for the Beacon, Tennessee Explore, or Volunteer scholarships, your awards will be carried over to Spring 2022.

Please note that students who are entering in Spring 2022 and those participating in the Verto Education program will continue to be considered for financial aid and scholarship programs for which they may qualify.

If you do not wish to participate in any of the options above, you can also decline your admission to UT by logging into your VIP Portal, navigating to the Resources tab, and fill out the Decline form. We wish you the best of luck in your future studies, and we hope you will consider transferring to UT at a later date. Learn more about our transfer process at transfer.utk.edu.
