(Have students coming to MTSU this spring?  If they qualify for an academic scholarship, they should receive a scholarship award packet in the mail in early November!)

 

Academic Service Scholarship for Valedictorians & Salutatorians

Students with a class rank of 1 or 2 and an ACT of at least 22 (or 1020 SAT, without writing scores) by the February 15 deadline will be considered for an Academic Service Scholarship of $3000 per year.  We may be able to award scholarships based on info which arrives after the deadline, depending on available funding.  If you know that you will not be able to submit information on an eligible student’s rank before February 15 due to school or district policies, please let me know so that we can discuss options.  Information about this scholarship is available in the Academic Merit Scholarships section of our website.

 

Buchanan Fellowship Program

December 1 is also the application deadline for the Buchanan Fellowship, a prestigious full-tuition award for incoming freshmen.  Recipients will receive full tuition (up to 16 hours) plus $500 per semester, as well as consideration for study abroad scholarship funds and access to special resources and events.  Students with a GPA of at least 3.5 and ACT of at least 29 (or 1280 SAT) may apply for consideration.  Please note: Unlike other MTSU scholarships, the Buchanan Fellowship typically considers only ACT and SAT scores through the October test date.  The scholarship is highly competitive; most recipients will have higher GPA and ACT than the minimum. Information and an application are available via the MTSU Honors College website.

Other MTSU Scholarship Opportunities

Students who plan to enroll this summer or fall can also apply for competitive scholarships such as the DREAM Scholarship (our freshman diversity scholarship) and Foundation Scholarships, including the Centennial Scholarship and SouthEast Bank Scholarship (formerly called the Edscholar Scholarship).  For more information, visit the DREAM and Foundation sections of our website; an online Consolidated Scholarship Application must be submitted between mid-December and February 15 via ScholarX.

 

International Baccalaureate Scholarship

The International Baccalaureate Scholarship is available to first-time freshmen who are expected to graduate from high school with an International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.  This scholarship is $1000 per year for four years and can be “stacked’ with another academic scholarship (other than the Buchanan Fellowship).  Students must apply for admission and submit an International Baccalaureate Diploma Verification Form by February 15 to be considered.  For more information about this scholarship and a link to the verification form, please visit the International Baccalaureate section of our website.

 

National Merit, Achievement, and Hispanic Scholarships

Our National Merit, National Achievement, and National Hispanic Scholarship programs recognize students who are selected as semi-finalists in the above programs based on their PSAT scores.  Qualifying students will receive $6000 per year for 4 years.  Students who believe they may be eligible should fax a copy of their semi-finalist notification letter to 615-494-7770; you or another school representative can also send an email to let me know of a student’s status.

Lottery Scholarship Program

Update on Award Amounts

The state legislature has made some changes to the lottery award amounts, beginning with the Fall 2015 semester. 

  • At a 4-year school such as MTSU, a Hope Scholarship recipient will receive $1750 per semester during the freshman and sophomore years (versus $2000 under the current rules).  When the student reaches the junior level, he or she will then receive $2250 per semester. 
  • At a 2-year school such as a community college, a Hope Scholarship recipient will receive $1500 per semester (versus $1000 under the current rules). 

All listed award amounts are based on full-time enrollment; students attending part-time will receive 50% or 75% of the full-time amount, depending on the number of hours enrolled.

 

GPA Reminder

As you know, the state regulations regarding the Tennessee Education Lottery Scholarship state that a student must have either a 21 ACT or a 980 SAT (without writing scores) or a 3.0 cumulative high school GPA.  The state specifically calls for the Uniform Grading Policy (UGP) GPA to be used for lottery purposes.  Please note the following information:

  • The Uniform Grading Policy GPA uses an internal weighting process, adding 3 or 5 extra percentage points to the student’s overall grade for advanced courses. This may result in a student’s grade being one letter higher than it would without the internal weighting.  
  • Many schools employ an external weighting formula which adds .5 or 1.0 extra quality points for advanced classes, resulting in a possible GPA of 5.0.  This GPA is typically called a "weighted" GPA, and listed as such on the high school transcript.
  • TSAC refers to the UGP GPA as “weighted” on their brochure and their website, though the UGP GPA is typically lower than the GPA listed as "weighted" on most high school transcripts.
  • Our understanding is that many high schools list the UGP GPA on their transcript as “unweighted”, or don’t list it on the transcript at all.
  • Since the state refers to a “weighted” GPA, many students and parents incorrectly assume that the “weighted” GPA on the transcript will be used to determine lottery eligibility. (And since the true weighted GPA is typically higher than the UGP GPA, students who believe they are eligible may not qualify!)

 

I encourage you to talk with your students and parents about this rule and make sure they understand which GPA will be used for lottery scholarship determinations.

 

Dual Enrollment Grant Reminder

Did you know that high school juniors and seniors can receive funding through the lottery scholarship program to pay a portion of the cost of dual-enrollment courses?  For more information:

 

Please note that the Dual Enrollment Grant’s awarding formula will be changing in upcoming semesters.  We are waiting for clarification from the state, but early information suggests that students will receive a higher award amount for the first two DEG awards and a lower amount for the second two.  Keep an eye on TSAC’s webpage for updated info.

Upcoming Events

Honors College Open House

Students and their families are invited to an Open House at the MTSU Honors College on President’s Day (Monday, February 16, 2015). The University Honors College at MTSU provides The University Honors College at MTSU provides an Ivy League experience for high-ability scholars, with small classes, dedicated faculty, unique curricular and extracurricular experiences, award-winning arts and literary magazine, an Honors credit for Study Abroad, Governor’s school, Advanced Placement and IB credits. High school students must have a 25 ACT and 3.5 GPA to be qualified.  In late fall, students can find more information about the Open House at http://www.mtsu.edu/honors/OpenHouse.php and register to attend at www.mtsu.edu/rsvp.

 

College Goal Tennessee & FAFSA Timing

College Goal Tennessee is an opportunity for your students to receive free assistance with filing their FAFSA!  Attendees at events across the state of Tennessee in early spring will receive assistance in establishing PIN numbers, estimating their tax info, and completing and submitting a FAFSA.  Students who plan to attend a College Goal Tennessee event are encouraged to register online beginning on December 1, 2014.

 

For students who expect to have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of 0 on the FAFSA, we recommend that they file their 2015-2016 FAFSAs as soon after January 1 as possible.  (Students who believe they might have financial need may want to use FAFSA4Caster to get a rough idea of what EFC they might have.)  Students and parents can use estimated tax information such as 2013 tax returns and final 2014 pay stubs to file the FAFSA before they complete their 2014 tax returns.  While students who file the FAFSA based on estimated info are more likely to be selected to have their FAFSAs verified, we believe the added inconvenience of verification is well worth the potential for an extra grant of $2000!  Students who expect to have an EFC above 0 should file their FAFSAs no later than March 1, to qualify for need-based scholarships and other aid at MTSU.

 

Please note that students who expect to have an EFC of 0 should file their FAFSAs as soon after January 1 as possible, as noted above.  If a College Goal Tennessee event is after mid-January, we recommend that such a student go ahead and file their FAFSA before the event.  They may still want to attend the event after filing the FAFSA, though; there may be a workshop or presentation on financial which is helpful to them, and they may be able to receive assistance with making any necessary corrections or updates to the FAFSA.

University of Tennessee Scholarship Update

Greetings from Rocky Top!

In an effort to better serve you and your students, I am pleased to announce that the University of Tennessee has increased its investment in your best and brightest with a new institutional scholarship model, effective for all Fall 2015 entering students.  The increased awards will be based on GPA and test score – and do not require an essay.  Please note, an essay component is still required for other programs and competitive awards for which your students may be applying. 

The newly defined awards will be called Volunteer Scholarships. 

Please note carefully the criteria below and feel free to share with your students.  Eligibility is based on both a minimum 3.8 weighted UT core GPA and super-scored ACT or SAT scores in these ranges.

Minimum 3.8 weighted UT core GPA and . . .

Score Range

In-State

34-36 / 1490-1600

$8,000

30-33 / 1330-1480

$6,000

28-29 / 1250-1320

$3,000

 Scholarship offer letters for these awards will soon be sent to students already admitted and many more who will be admitted.  In addition, we will be promoting these great opportunities with a mailed postcard and an email to our prospects and applicants who have at least a 25 ACT. These will inform many of their scholarship potential and provide time for students to retest this fall should they choose. Upcoming ACT test dates are October 25 (will be considered for the November 1 deadline for competitive scholarships) and December 13.  Upcoming SAT test dates are November 8 and December 6.

These important changes were made in part based on feedback from you, as well as students and families, who want to know, up front, the kind of scholarship support they will have when financing their UT education.  And we want to reward students for the very hard work they are doing to prepare themselves for the next step in their education. 

Deadlines:

  • November 1: Priority Deadline for Admission and Scholarships (including competitive awards)
  • December 1: Regular Deadline for Admission and Institutional Scholarships (including the new Volunteer Scholarship program)
  • December 31: Updated Test Scores can be submitted through Dec. 31 to increase award amounts. We will allow for all Fall test dates.
  • June 15:  Updated transcripts and GPA’s can be submitted to qualify for award amounts.

 On a related topic – students invited to UT’s Volunteer Bridge program will have access to Tennessee Promise benefits  (http://tennesseepromise.gov), but must apply for Tennessee Promise by the November 1 state deadline.  Please encourage students with whom you are working, who might be a good fit for Bridge, to complete the state application process by November 1.  Our Volunteer Bridge program is designed for students who fall below the academic profile of our incoming class, but whom we believe have great potential to add to our campus community.  Vol Bridge students get to enjoy the UT residential first-year experience, while taking classes at Pellissippi State Community College.  It is a wonderful pathway to a UT experience and education for students needing extra academic support to start their college careers.

Great scholarship update - MTSU

Greetings from your MTSU Admissions Counselor!

I hope this email finds you well and having a great school year! I wanted to share some important items with you regarding MTSU.

The biggest change that has occurred at MTSU is our guaranteed academic scholarship requirements. We have adjusted the ACT requirements in order to benefit students. I wanted to make sure you are aware of this as our website has only recently been updated. Students meeting the requirements for these scholarships simply need to complete their admissions application by December 1st, 2014. Specific requirements are at this link: http://www.mtsu.edu/financial-aid/scholarships/incoming-freshmen.php

MTSU will be hosting our annual True Blue Tour this year again in Knoxville and Johnson City! I have included those details at the bottom of the email. Our Preview Days this fall will take place on Saturday September 27th and Saturday November 1st. We also will be hosting several True Blue Experience Days on Friday this fall. More information can be obtained at www.mtsu.edu/RSVP . Please feel free to advertise this information on your websites, in newsletters, morning announcements, etc.

Each year we receive many inquiries about application fee waivers. The form can be downloaded from our website by clicking here. Just a reminder that a student must meet both the academic requirement and the financial need requirement listed on the form.

Last fall we added a new program that we are extremely excited about here at MTSU! This program is Mechatronics Engineering-Click for more information. I believe this program would be of great interest to your students and particularly those involved in robotic organizations. Below is the official description of the program:

MTSU’s new Mechatronics Engineering degree program is on the cutting edge of a fast-growing industry. Jobs are waiting for engineers to design and enhance robotics and automated systems. The design process of mechatronics combines mechanical, computer, and electrical engineering along with systems integration and technical project management. A surgical robot is a perfect example of a mechatronic system, performing precision mechanical work under sophisticated electronic and sensory control. Unlike traditional programs, MTSU’s mechatronics has a systems approach, breaking the whole down into subsystems and then components, so that graduates can design products with a system in mind, not just one component. Rutherford County auto industry giants Bridgestone, with a mechatronics facility at its LaVergne education center, and Nissan are among worldwide and local partners in the program. 


 

TRUE BLUE TOUR INFO (Student and Family Reception):

MTSU is coming to a city near you! Join members of the MTSU Community for a reception to gain an understanding of what MTSU has to offer you and to learn what's happening at Tennessee's Best University! There will be giveaways that include scholarships and iPads!
