KNOXVILLE, Tenn (WVLT) -- UT Admissions application deadline is Dec. 1, 2012 for the next school year.
"UT is looking for the best and brightest students to make up our next freshman class," said Richard Bayer, assistant provost and director of enrollment services.
But the university is also committed to being accessible, he said.
"When we talk about finding the best students, we're not just talking about grade-point averages and ACT scores; rather, we're talking about the whole range of special abilities, characteristics and talents that students can bring to our campus. Prospective students also can demonstrate their ability to succeed at UT by showing us a healthy combination of grades and extracurricular activities, along with their personal statements and a letter of recommendation."
Students will be notified of their admission status no later than mid-March.
In addition to Dec. 1, there are two other important deadlines to remember:
Feb. 15, 2013 is the filing deadline for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
May 1 , 2013is the deadline for admitted students to confirm their attendance by paying a nonrefundable deposit of $250.
