Fee Waivers or Tuition Discount/Waivers must be submitted at registration and fee payment. Waivers cannot be accepted after the fee payment deadline. Except as otherwise noted, fee payment is due at the time of registration.

In-State Residency Classification
Residency Application with supporting documents should be submitted at registration/ fee payment and no later than the first day of classes (full session). If a student classified as out-of-state applies for Tennessee residency and is subsequently approved, in-state classification is effective as of the approval date. However, out-of-state tuition will be charged for the semester unless in-state residency is proven before the first day of classes for the full session. In-state residency cannot be approved retroactively.

Permanently Disabled and Senior Audit participants may register based on space availability on the session begin date. A late fee will be charged if registered after the session begin date.
