Undergraduate Admissions

Tusculum University is a distinctive institution that seeks applicants of good character and academic promise. Our applicant population is diverse, and we welcome applications from all who desire an education that is highly civic-minded and intensely practical. A Tusculum University education is deeply rooted in the Civic Arts and closely analyzes practices that exemplify good citizenship.

Applicants are admitted to Tusculum University because they have demonstrated potential to succeed in a rigorous environment and shown further evidence of their capability to contribute to the Tusculum community as a whole. The curriculum at Tusculum University places strong emphasis on writing, analytical reading and critical analysis. Applicants are assessed for these skills early in their college careers. Assistance is provided to applicants needing further development for academic success.

In determining an applicant’s readiness for college, criteria for admission are both objective and subjective. The University examines academic records, ACT or SAT scores, class rank, and looks holistically at the applicant. We know that a family’s financial situation has no relationship to an applicant’s preparation, character, potential or intellect. The University adheres strictly to a financially need-blind policy.
