UT priority admissions deadline fast-approaching | News
(WBIR) There's a key deadline coming up soon for students who hope to become part of the big orange family next year.
The University of Tennessee's priority admissions and scholarship deadline is November 1. Incoming freshmen must fill out their applications by then to be considered for competitive scholarships and the Chancellor's Honor Program.
New this year, all UT applicants must write a personal essay. The school's interim director of undergraduate admissions, Kari Alldredge, said that the essay will give applicants a chance to explain the broad range of experiences and talents a student will share with the university.
However, letters of recommendation are now considered optional.
The regular application deadline is December 1. Students who apply by that date will be considered for institutional scholarships.
