- Math 105 and 106 are developmental courses that do not count toward degree requirements.
- Students with an ACT Subscore of 22 or 23 may be required to take Math 106 (a developmental course) if their major requires a mathematics course other than Math 123.
- Math 123, 131, 136, 144, 145, 151, and 216 satisfy the General Education Mathematics requirement. These courses also fulfill mathematics requirements for some majors.
- Math 210 satisfies the General Education Statistics requirement; it does not satisfy the General Education Mathematics requirement. (Certain majors may require a different statistics course for the General Education Statistics requirement.)
- To be eligible for Math 151, students must have the equivalent of at least a semester of high school trigonometry.
Students placed in Math 106, Intermediate Algebra, may elect to participate in a short course to prepare for College Algebra. For more information, visit www.utc.edu/Academic/DevelopmentalMath.
Students with an Enhanced ACT composite score of 18 or better (SAT total of 840 or above) are exempt from the reading course. Students with an Enhanced ACT composite score of 17 or lower must enroll in Education 105.
Freshman students without the Enhanced ACT or the SAT must take the reading placement exam. Students with a raw score of 49 or lower may be required to take University Studies 100 after completion of Education 105.
All incoming students who have three years or more of high school study in a single foreign language (and no college level study of the language) and who wish to continue study in that language will be required to take a placement test to determine their level of competence in that language. A student should begin study of the language at the level established by the placement exam.
New Student Registration
During orientation sessions, students will receive academic advisement and register for courses. In most cases, students who have declared a major will be advised in the major departments. Students who have not yet declared a major will be advised by personnel from the Retention and Advisement Office. In addition to meeting with their major department, student athletes should also meet with staff in the Athletic Department to verify compliance with NCAA regulations.
Advisement begins after the placement exam results are available. Each student will receive a RAP sheet and will meet with an academic advisor to determine the student's courses for the upcoming semester.
Regular Advisement and Registration
As noted above, each student must schedule an advisement session before registering for courses for the following semester. This section describes campus resources available to all students to help in the advisement and registration process. This section also presents information related to registering for courses.
The Advising Process
The following sections review the specific advising processes for different groups of students.
Advising for Adult Students
Students enrolled though the Adult Students program may receive academic advising from the Adult Students Center located in 278 University Center or call (423) 425-2694. The staff of the center can assist students in course enrollment as well as the payment of fees.
Advising for Transfer Students
All transfer students must meet with an advisor before registering for classes. Transfer students who have declared a major should contact the department to schedule an advising session. Transfer students who have not declared a major must contact the Advisement Office located in 278 University Center or (423) 425-4573 for assistance. Questions or concerns regarding the acceptance of transfer credits should be directed to the Advisement Office.
Advising for Students Who are Pre-Majors or Who Have Not Declared a Major
The staff in the Retention and Advisement Office advise students who are pre-majors or who have not yet declared a major. To schedule an appointment with an advisor, the student should go to the Advisement Office located in 278 University Center or call (423) 425-4573.
