Road to Rocky Top

The Road to Rocky Top program is an invite-only program designed to prepare students for a successful start at UT in Spring 2021 or Fall 2021. This exciting program allows students to choose the best pathway to the university through two different options: Volunteer Bridge or Verto Vols.

The Volunteer Bridge Program will allow students to complete academic coursework at Pellissippi State Community College (PSCC) for one year while living on UT’s campus and having a Big Orange first year experience. Upon meeting the program’s GPA and credit hour requirements, Volunteer Bridge students are guaranteed transfer admission at UT for fall 2021.

The Verto Vols program will allow students to spend their first semester abroad with other new Vols (earning college credit) before returning and starting classes at UT in January 2021. This international experience ensures a seamless transition from the first semester abroad to the spring semester at UT. Upon meeting the program’s GPA and credit hour requirements, Verto Vols students are guaranteed transfer admission at UT for spring 2021. Learn more about Verto Vols
