To apply, visit

Whether you’re making the jump from high school, transferring from another institution, or following the lure of one of MTSU’s nationally renowned, signature programs, you could become one of the newest Blue Raiders.

MTSU has the resources of a large public university, but it feels like a small school. Faculty members are deeply interested in student success, and it shows in the personal attention they give. MTSU attracts more transfer students and adult learners than an other university in the state. Many alumni return to MTSU for graduate school.

Best Advice?

Apply early. The sooner you submit your application, the sooner we can tell you about your admission status. Plan ahead. Follow through to make sure all your documents arrive on time.

Read the directions. First, read the admission requirements in the undergraduate catalog and the instructions that are included. Second, refer to the schedule of classes for the semester you’re planning for. In particular, read the introductory information, which includes how to register, when to register, how and when to pay your bill, and much more.

Fill out the paperwork. We can’t tell you if you’re admitted or not without having your completed application, test scores, and official transcript(s). We won’t guess about your residency status if you haven’t submitted a residency application and supporting documents. The MT One Stop will not tell you how much aid you will be eligible for if you have not provided the appropriate paperwork.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Faculty and staff are here to help you. If you’ve read the directions but still aren’t clear on how something works, call the appropriate office and ask for clarification, or call 615-898-2300 for the number you need.
