Applicants for admission as degree seeking students who have been registered in another college or university are classified as transfer students.
In addition to filling out the online application and paying the application fee, students must submit the following to the Undergraduate Admissions Office for the fall semester by July 1, for spring semester by November 1, or for any summer semester by April 15.
- Complete official transcripts from each previously attended college
- Official high school transcript showing graduation and type of diploma
For admission as transfer students, students must
- have pursued courses appropriate to the curriculum at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga,
- be eligible to return to their last institution, and
- meet The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga continuation standards.
Beginning Fall 2008 all Transfer students will be required to have a 2.0 GPA to transfer to UTC.
Grades for all courses attempted will be used in determining the continuation standards. Students who graduated from high school in 1989 or after and are transferring fewer than 60 hours of semester credit, must also meet the minimum high school unit requirements and are required to take UTC's placement exams unless an exemption is granted. Students who transfer less than 12 hours of college level non-developmental coursework must meet the minimum requirements for new freshman.
Students whose records do not meet the standards required by the University for admission will be denied admission unless, in the opinion of the Assistant Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Services or his designate, acceptance on scholastic probation is justified. If admitted on probation, students will be required to remove high school unit deficiencies within their first 30 hours of enrollment at UTC. Credits earned in such courses do not apply toward any degree requirements, including general education, major or elective requirements.
