Congratulations on being admitted to the Tickle College of Engineering’s Class of 2024!
The college is rapidly growing with new facilities, more students, and research opportunities. We are thrilled to have you join the college at such an exciting time. This list includes some important reminders about next steps as you progress into your UT experience.
Step Two: Sign up for orientation as early as possible. The earlier you participate in orientation this summer, the more class choices you will have. Remember: sign up only after paying your enrollment deposit.
Step Three: Begin planning for a successful first year of college. Tools for success you need to review prior to orientation include the online Undergraduate Catalog. Click “Majors A–Z” in the right-hand menu to view courses required for your degree. Also review the academic planning worksheets for your major. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on your major and 2020. Be sure to read all the instructions.
Please review the Advising powerpoint and complete the requested forms for orientation. Be sure to have your completed forms that will include the AP/IB/Dual Credit worksheet, General Education worksheet, and a tentative fall semester schedule.
Step Four: Advanced Placement/International Baccalaureate guides will help you determine what, if any, course credits you will obtain from your AP or IB exam scores. Review generic examples of first-year schedules for students in our college.
Step Five: Admitted engineering students with a Math ACT score of 25, 26, or 27 (or students who have an SAT Math score of 590 to 650) will begin with Math 131 Pre-Calculus in the fall and take Engineering Fundamentals in the spring.
Step Six: If you are interested in living in Engage, the engineering living & learning community, you will need to first complete and submit your online housing contract. After that, you will be able to access the online living & learning community application. If you have any questions about participating in or applying to Engage, contact University Housing at 865-974-1419 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step Seven: Entering first-years in engineering are required to have a laptop. You may choose any laptop you prefer.
We look forward to seeing you at orientation!
