As Tennessee's flagship land-grant and premier research university, we’re here to provide a quality education and to prepare you for what comes next. As Andy, one of our recent alumni will tell you, the opportunities UT provided are one of the reasons he’s doing what he does today, documenting festivals like Bonnaroo and living in and giving back to Knoxville, where he was recently voted the best photographer in the city. He also graduated from UT debt free, which is something nearly half of our students do.

“The way that UT has made itself affordable, especially to the community, especially to Tennesseans but even out of state, it was definitely one of the best educations I could get for how affordable it was.”

Andy, young alumnus, Knoxville, TN

Beyond the Classroom

We value hands-on learning, including civic engagement, real-world problem solving and research, and study abroad experiences. We create co-curricular transcripts for you to show off your amazing work outside the classroom.

Excellent Education, Great Value

We offer a variety of funding programs—nearly half of our students graduate with no debt—and we prepare you for what comes next. More than 80 percent of our graduates report that they are employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation.

Count on Your Volunteer Family

Our global alumni network opens doors for UT students no matter where their career aspirations take them.

“People underestimate the connections you make in college. I wouldn’t be here at all if it wasn’t for the friends I met in class or the professors I met.”
