The University of Tennessee, Knoxville


Students who complete a Tennessee Transfer Pathway will be given priority consideration for admission. However, the admission process is still competitive and still holistic. Completion of a Tennessee Transfer Pathway is not a guarantee of admission to the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK) or to a specific program.

The University of Tennessee will accept transfer credit of similar content from any two- or four-year accredited institutions, normally institutions with regional accreditation status in the United States. Coursework that leads to the Applied Science degree from Career/Technical programs is not transferable. Students from non-US colleges or universities should consult the transfer evaluators in the Office of the University Registrar for transfer eligibility.
