WHO IS A TRANSFER STUDENT?
Students are eligible to transfer to Tusculum College if they:
- are in good standing with all previous institutions attended
- have completed 12 hours of college-level credits (non-developmental)
- have a GPA of at least a 2.0 in all college course work
HOW DO I APPLY?
To apply for admission as a transfer student, two items are required:
- a completed application
- official transcripts from all previously attended schools.*
If you have less than 12 hours of non-developmental college-level credits, you must also submit a copy of your final high school transcript along with an official ACT or SAT score.
* All college transcripts must be mailed directly from the institution to Tusculum College at P.O. Box 5051 Greeneville, TN 37743.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE ME TO GRADUATE?
Tusculum provides a unique service for entering transfer students called an Individualized Graduation Plan (IGP). Your IGP is a tentative academic schedule put together by our Academic Resource Center staff. It will list all the courses that are needed in order to graduate from Tusculum, while giving you an idea of the courses you will be taking each semester.
To qualify for an IGP, students must complete the transfer application process and provide Tusculum with their intended major. If you would like to speak with our Academic Resource Center regarding your IGP, you can contact their office at 800.729.0256 extension 5379.

Financial assistance comes in the form of need and merit-based scholarships and grants. Accepted students are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships and grants. For transfer students, eligibility is determined based on your college GPA. To find out what merit-based aid you would be eligible for, visit our Scholarship Calculator.
