All Roane State transfer program graduates receive guaranteed admission to Tennessee Tech!
Before she became a Golden Eagle, Kaitlyn Lee started her higher education journey at Roane State Community College. Now a senior biology major at Tennessee Tech with ambitions of going to medical school, the Crossville native quickly came to love being a student at Tech.
“My experience transferring from RSCC to Tech was very relaxed. I was worried about classes not transferring and the whole process being very taxing, but I was wrong. Once my transcripts were sent, everything else fell into place.”
Transitioning from Roane State to Tennessee Tech was easy, Lee says, because she had support throughout the process. By starting at Roane State, Lee says she felt she was set up for success.
“Starting at Roane State gave me a couple extra years to really prepare for the full force of college and spend more time with my family,” Lee said. “RSCC was the best decision for me at the time because it allowed me to grow and mature.”
Since coming to Tech, she found a university community that embraced her and she fell in love with campus.
Lee wants to encourage students interested in coming to Tech who may be considering starting at RSCC. The most important thing is to find what works for you, she says.
“Tech provides that full college experience but starting at Roane State allowed me to ease into the college transition. There is no cookie cutter answer. Each student must decide for themselves what would be best for them.
“Starting at RSCC was the best decision for me at the time and now that I am at Tech, I love being a Golden Eagle too!”
Students who apply to Tech by the current admission deadline (beginning in Fall 2023) will receive a guaranteed Tech Transfer Pride Scholarship, renewable for up to three years (if the student meets the minimum requirements). Students must be transferring with a minimum 3.0 GPA, and award amounts will range from $1,000 to $3,000 per year based on GPA. College transcripts are needed for the purpose of establishing scholarship eligibility. Please check the Tech website for the current transcript submittal deadline. See full transfer scholarship details.
In order to be considered for hundreds of additional departmental scholarships, transfer students must complete a scholarship application. The priority deadline for greatest consideration is in January each year with a final deadline later in the spring. Students must first be admitted to complete the scholarship application. Lastly, it is strongly recommended that you complete your FAFSA as early as possible, as this is used for the awarding of certain need-based scholarships in addition to state and federal financial aid. Please make sure to list Tennessee Tech University as your first institution.
We are committed to making your transition to Tech as seamless as possible. If you have any questions at all, the Tennessee Tech Scholarship Office and Financial Aid Office is here to help. You can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, or by calling (931) 372-6159.
