Conditional I-20 and University Admission

We are so happy you are considering UTM! The Princeton Review has ranked UTM among the Best in the Southeast for the 12th consecutive year! UTM is also listed among America's 100 Best College Buys, one of only three public institutions from Tennessee. This means: a great education for a great value in the beautiful northwest corner of Tennessee!

Students applying for conditional admission for the Tennessee Intensive English Program must submit:

A completed, signed application form - an applicant must be at least 17 years old.
A bank letter or other papers of financial support
A payment (draft, money order, credit card) for the total fees and deposits (all non-refundable)*
Students applying for undergraduate admission must submit the following:
A completed, signed application form.
A bank letter or other papers of financial support
An official high school transcript and certificate of graduation translated into English.
If you are a transfer student, you must also provide official transcripts translated into English from each higher education institute you have attended since your graduation from high school. Course descriptions from your university are required for evaluation of transfer credits**.
Official minimum TOEFL score of 500 (UT Martin’s Institutional paper test only), iBT of 61 (internet-based), IELTS of 6.0, or successful completion of Level 6 in TIEP is required for all majors.
The UTM MBA program is now hybrid, meaning it is online with five weekends per semester. Under SEVIS/Homeland Security regulations, this is not sufficient class time to grant F-1 visas to international students. As such, no international students may apply for our MBA at this time. Please visit the website occasionally for changes or contact the Graduate Admissions Office.

**Students from Africa, China and India must have their transcripts and certificate of graduation be evaluated by WES (www.wes.org) or ECE (www.ece.org).
