Transfer to the University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Students transferring from community colleges or other universities apply for admission using the online application. The university’s transfer credit policy is available in the current UT catalog. The Office of the University Registrar provides course transfer equivalency tables for Tennessee community colleges and universities. The tables allow you to determine how courses you are currently taking or are planning to take at other Tennessee schools compare to University of Tennessee courses.

The Transfer Center offers tours specifically geared towards transfer students, and is also open for virtual office hours using Zoom to answer your transfer admissions questions!
