Next Steps for On Campus Undergraduate Students
Congratulations on your acceptance to Truett McConnell University! We are so excited that you will soon be joining the TMU community. Now that you are accepted, you are probably wondering, “What’s next?” The following items will help guide you through the process from now until your arrival on campus.
Step 1: Complete Enrollment Application
Once you’ve received your acceptance letter, please follow the link below to complete the Enrollment Application and choose your status as either a Resident or Commuter.
- Enrollment Application
- Disclosure of Disability Form (See Special Support Services for more information).
- Enrollment fee. This non-refundable $175 enrollment fee secures your space at TMU and is required for placement in campus housing.
- Final transcripts. Upon graduation, accepted high school students must submit a final transcript reflecting your senior year credits, grades, final rank in class, and date of graduation. Transfer students must submit a final transcript of all work completed at all colleges and universities previously attended.
Step 2: Apply for Financial Aid
Students applying for Financial Aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The application is available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. When completing the FAFSA, please make sure TMU receives your information by using the school code 001597. The FAFSA can be filed beginning January 1 and should be submitted by June 1 for priority consideration. All other financial aid questions can be directed to Financial Aid Office at 706-865-2134 ext. 4203. Once all necessary paper work has been submitted, the Financial Aid Office can send you an award letter.
Step 3: Take Placement Test
Students who have not passed a college level math course will be required to take a math placement exam before registering for classes. Placement testing will be held over the summer on the following dates:
- June 5
- June 12
- July 10
- July 17
- July 31
All testing will be from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on the first floor of the Nix Student Center. Contact Sudie Crouch with questions regarding placement testing.
Step 4: Register for Classes
All new students will have a schedule generated for them by the Registrar’s Office. Schedules are generated after math placement scores are received or after transfer transcripts are evaluated. Schedules will be emailed to the student email address provided on the enrollment application form. Students may contact the Registrar’s Office regarding course schedules or general course information by calling 706-865-2134, ext. 2160 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 5: Order Textbooks
Once you receive your course schedule, make sure to order your required books in time to use them the first day of class.
