Before your admission to MTSU can be completed, you will need to provide proof of immunization. A copy of your DD 214, submitted with the form below, will provide adequate proof for all immunizations except Varicella (chickenpox). See requirements at link below.
The Undergraduate Admissions office is charged with classifying new undergraduate
students as in-state or out-of-state for fee-paying purposes, according to the guidelines
established by the state legislature and the Tennessee Board of Regents. If there
is any reason to question your status as a permanent resident of Tennessee, we will
classify you out-of-state until we receive a completed in-state classification application
and supporting documents. Click on the link below for a copy of the in-state classification
application online. The in-state classification application should be filed with the
Admissions Office at least 10 days in advance of the start of the semester so that
we will have time to process it before your fees are due.
If your in-state classification application was denied, contact the Student Affairs Office at (615) 898-2750 to schedule an appeal before the In-State Classification Appeals Committee. Students appealing their residency decision have the option of meeting in person with the Committee to explain their situation. You cannot contact the Appeals Committee until after your in-state classification application has been denied by the Admissions Office.

An extremely important step to completing your admission to MTSU is student orientation. Your admission status of "new freshmen" or "new transfer" will determine which orientation you are to attend.
