Logging into the application status page today, there is a new addition. Instead of “Application Checklist” being the first thing you see, it now has a whole section starting with "Your Student ID, NetID, and NetID password are required to confirm your enrollment at UT! Follow the steps below to get what you need! Your Student ID and NetID can be found below. "

But no student ID or Net ID are shown.

No email or letter yet.

Called and they said to expect student ID and NetID to be generated within a few days.

So, it looks like when a student is admitted, they might see this change on their status page prior to getting a notification.

Daughter is dying to know if she was accepted to her desired major…

Letter appeared as pdf on status page and indicates:

“Your application to your first-choice major in The College of Nursing is currently under review within that department. Admission to The College of Nursing is extremely competitive, so their team reviews each application holistically—which can take extra time. Once they reach a decision, we will let you know”

Received acceptance today on Application Status page (still waiting on email)

ACT: 31
GPA: 3.3 (5 AP classes, 4 IB classes, 3 honors classes)
Rank: N/A
State Residency: GA but should get in state as son’s father lives in TN
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Gender: Male

Applied date: 10/5
Decision date: 10/12
Decision/College: Accepted/Haslam College of Business

Note: My son had started the application on 9/4 and we ordered the transcripts and ACT scores back then. The essay and personal statement didn’t get finished until 10/5.

He is so excited as this is his first choice school. We were concerned because his GPA is on the low side but we think the rigor of his classes and the good ACT score helped get him in.

Has anyone heard anything about a merit scholarship or an invite to apply to honors college yet? When do those typically go out? Thanks!

I got an email last night from the admissions office saying my application is 75% done processing and told me the types of admissions there are.(Admitted, supplemental review, volunteer bridge, and denied)

Does this mean i will know if i was accepted soon? Did anyone else receive this?

My son did not get that email. However, we did have the ACT scores and transcripts sent into the school way before he finally submitted the application including the essay and personal statement. I would guess they are waiting on ACT/SAT scores and/or HS transcript. I would suggest checking the portal instead of waiting on an email. The email came about 4 days after the acceptance showed on the portal. Did you use Common App or the VOLS app?

@hokusei Did your Volunteer scholarship and invite to honors/scholars come with your admission decision? My daughter meets the criteria, but has received no info yet on scholarship and honors/scholars app. She was accepted 10/5. Starting to lose interest…

@excitingtimes volunteer scholarship came with acceptance and honors/scholars invite came in a separate email the next day
