Individual Review

One Term of Enrollment

If you enrolled for one term only at any other college or university and did not achieve the required grade point average for transfer, and you meet regular ETSU requirements for freshman admission or admission as an exception, you may be admitted on appropriate academic probation. Students admitted on probation are subject to ETSU regulations regarding removal of probationary status.

No Transferable Hours of Credit

If you have attended any college and you have no attempted transferable hours, your admission may be determined by a review of your high school credentials, standardized test scores, and/or course work completed at any degree granting institution of higher education.
