Mocs Scholars Program

Renewable award of $3,000 a year for first-time freshmen.

To be eligible for this scholarship, first-time freshmen should first apply for admission.

The next step is to apply for scholarships. Both applications are required for candidates to be considered for this scholarship. Since funding is limited, consideration will only be given to students entering UTC in the fall semester and who meet the following criteria:

  • UTC Admissions file (application, application fee, high school transcript, and ACT/SAT score) by December 1, 2018  (qualifying test scores/GPA must also be submitted to UTC Admissions by December 1, 2018 as well)
  • 3.2 GPA and 22 ACT composite score (1100 SAT)

Students may receive an additional $3,500 in Tennessee HOPE Lottery Scholarship funds, if eligible.

This award is renewable for up to three additional years based on the student’s academic performance. Students should refer to their award notification letters (or the terms and conditions in their MyMocsNet) for enrollment requirements and renewal criteria. There is no regain option for students who do not meet the renewal criteria.

This scholarship cannot be stacked with other renewable scholarships or endowed scholarships offered through the UTC Financial Aid and Scholarships or Admissions offices.

Apply early. Scholarship funds are limited and the awarding process is competitive. Meeting the eligibility requirements does not guarantee receiving a scholarship. The best way to improve your candidacy is to submit all required materials as soon as possible.
