2 February deadlines await prospective students

Prospective MTSU students have two important upcoming dates to remember:

• Wednesday, Feb. 1, is the deadline for all MTSU transfer scholarships (except the Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship); and

• Wednesday, Feb. 15, is the deadline to apply for most competitive MTSU scholarships and is also the secondary deadline for freshman academic scholarships for the 2012-13 academic year.

That’s the word from Bonnie McCarty, assistant director of scholarships in the University’s Scholarships Office, which is located in Room 206 of the James Union Building.

Prospective students who applied to MTSU by Dec. 1, 2011, receive first priority for the major scholarships awarded by MTSU. Major awards include National Merit/Achievement, Chancellor, Presidential, Academic Service, Valedictorian/Salutatorian, Provost and International Baccalaureate Scholarships.

“Students who applied for admission after the Dec. 1 priority deadline but by Feb. 15 may be considered for freshman academic scholarships if funding is available,” McCarty said.

The Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship for transfer students has a March 1 closing date.

Diverse Representation and Educational Access, or DREAM, and MTSU Foundation scholarships have a Feb. 15 deadline. Some departmental scholarships have a Feb. 15 deadline.

Information about available scholarships and academic procedures is available at, McCarty added.
