Free Application Week: During Tennessee College App Week, MTSU will be waiving their $25 college application fee! This means all high school seniors can fill out a free application starting on Monday, September 19th up until the following Sunday, September 25th!
True Blue Tour: MTSU's annual True Blue Tour is coming to East Tennessee once again this fall! Representatives from every department at MTSU including the President, deans, counselors, and advisors come out to meet prospective students and their families at each stop. Our president, Dr. Sidney McPhee will randomly award scholarships (worth up to $22,000!!) to give to future Blue Raiders at both the counselor luncheon and the student reception.
The True Blue Tour will make a stop in Johnson City on October 19th
at the Carnegie Hotel (1216 W. State of Franklin Road) and Knoxville on October 20th at The Foundry (747 World's Fair Park Drive). We will host a Counselor and Community College Staff Luncheon at 12:30pm (for Knoxville only) and a Prospective Student Reception from 6:00-8:00pm (both Johnson City and Knoxville). I hope to see many of you and your students there. To register, visit mtsu.edu/rsvp
Guaranteed Scholarships: MTSU's guaranteed freshman scholarships are automatically awarded to any applicant with a GPA at a 3.5 or above AND a 23 ACT or above. These scholarships are stackable with the HOPE Scholarship and the Pell Grant as well. This year, we have raised the guaranteed scholarship amount from $5,000 a year to $8,000 a year for applicants with a 34, 35, or 36 ACT composite score. To be eligible for these scholarships, the student must complete their application by December 1st.

Fall Preview Days: MTSU is offering two "True Blue Preview Days" this semester. Visitors can take part in academic and departmental presentations, receive information on financial aid and scholarships and choose from many different special interest sessions. True Blue Preview offers the premier visit experience and is customizable based on the students' needs. They will be held on Saturday, October 1st and Saturday, November 5th at MTSU.

Other News and Notes: MTSU's housing application for the Fall of 2023 is expected to open around September 15th. Housing usually does not run out until June or July but do encourage your students to apply for housing as soon as they are certain that they want to live on-campus. Students do not have to live on campus, nor do they have to live in freshman-only dorms that we offer, but we do offer solid housing selections.
