Welcome home!

Congratulations on being accepted to Tennessee Wesleyan University! Now that you're accepted, there are a few simple steps to officially becoming a Bulldog! This page will be your go-to place for making sure you're on track to start classes in the fall. Have questions? Contact the Office of Admissions by phone at (423) 746-5286 or by email


Secure your spot in the incoming class by paying your $200 enrollment deposit. Your enrollment deposit is applied to your first semester tuition and is fully refundable until May 1.

Summer is a great time to visit campus and learn the ins and outs before orientation and your first day. 

Tours happen pretty much everyday and we will tailor your visit to your interests. 

Sign up today to experience TWU this summer!

Pay the $100 housing deposit if you are planning to live on campus (be sure to put Housing Deposit in the memo). Once the deposit is made, you'll receive an email with the housing application. Check out the residence hall options.

Register for a mandatory new student orientation session. At orientation, you'll meet fellow new Bulldogs, meet with financial aid and get your schedule for the fall.
