Here are some UT Martin updates for Fall 21.


  • Test-Flexible Admissions: For Fall 2021, we will admit students to UT Martin without ACT scores if they have at least a 3.0 weighted GPA. We know that many of your students have not taken the ACT or SAT yet due to COVD-19-related cancelations, and we do not want to hold up their admissions processes. An ACT or SAT score will be required for students to be eligible for merit scholarships and prior to enrollment for course placement. We start awarding scholarships November 1, and we anticipate students will have taken it prior to that. Here is the full press release.


  • Scholarship Awards: We will start awarding merit-based scholarships November 1 and will continue awarding and upgrading through at least May. Students need ACT or SAT scores on file in order to be eligible for a scholarship. We super score the ACT and SAT, and we will take scores on transcripts, directly from you (counselors), or from the testing agencies. Our scholarships start at a 3.0 GPA and 20 ACT super score, and the chart is available at


  • Fall travel: UT Martin is in phase two of our reentry plan which does allow us travel to your schools as long as social distancing guidelines are being followed.

  • Admissions Counselor Virtual Meetings: Your students can up a one-on-one meetings with me around their schedules. They sign up through this link:


  • Transcripts & Test Scores: You are welcome to send in transcripts through email (to me), electronic platforms, or mail. Whatever is easiest for you!


  • Campus Tours: We are offering in-person tours with limited numbers and also continuing to offer virtual tours. Students can sign up for in-person and virtual visits at


  • Virtual Preview Days: Our Preview Days will be happening virtually this year and provide excellent opportunities to connect with our faculty and learn more about UT Martin. Our next event is set for Saturday, November 7. More information is available online.


Thank you for all you do! Please let us know how we can serve you and your students this year.


Go Skyhawks!
