For admission to the program during the upcoming academic year, there are a limited
number of in-state and out-of-state scholarships available.
In-state scholarships cover the costs of in-state tuition and fees for a full-time student. If you receive a Tennessee Lottery Scholarship, you can apply that scholarship towards the costs of housing and meals.
Border Counties (for more information)
Border County students are treated as in-state students for the purposes of scholarship and fees. Border counties include:
North Carolina: Ashe, Avery, Haywood, Madison, Mitchell, Watauga, and Yancey
Virginia: Grayson, Lee, Scott, Washington
Out-of-state scholarships, for students not residing in Tennessee, cover the costs of out-of-state tuition for a full-time student. Students will still need to fund in-state tuition and fees.
Academic Common Market (for more information)
Academic Common Market students are treated as out-of-state students and receive the costs of out-of-state tuition for a full-time student. Fine & Performing Arts Scholars are not usually encouraged to choose Academic Common Market status as it limits them to a specific major.
