Application Process

For a printable format, see the Gateway Applicant Guide.

  1. Contact a program advisor by calling (423) 425-5624 or e-mailing to discuss the courses you'll need.

  2. Enroll in the University using the online application well in advance of the admission deadlines (November 15 for January cohort, June 15 for August cohort).  There is a $30 application fee. Choose “Pre-Nursing” as your major. If you have previously attended UTC you will apply for “re-admission” and do not need to pay the fee. Once you've applied, you may check your admissions status online.

  3. Ask your high school and colleges to send official transcripts to UTC Undergraduate Admissions, Dept. 5105, 615 McCallie Avenue, Chattanooga, TN 37403.

  4. Complete the Gateway application and ADA Statement to apply to the program.
