Continuing Studies Admissions

How to Get Started

Admission is competitive and students are encouraged to apply early.
First, apply online and submit the following:
  • $40 nonrefundable application fee
  • Official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended
  • Official final high school transcript or GED scores (or associate’s degree)
Applications are evaluated for fall, spring and summer terms on a rolling basis until classes are full.

Next, contact Continuing Studies at (813) 253-6249 or scs@ut.edu to schedule an advising appointment. This can be done in person, on the phone or via e-mail. We’ll discuss your educational needs, assess potential transfer credits and explore degree options.

Transfer Credit Policy

A maximum of 64 credits may be transferred from regionally accredited two-year or community colleges. Students transferring from regionally accredited four-year institutions may transfer any number of credits. All transfer students must complete the last 31 credit hours in residency at UT. Credit is transferred only for those courses completed with grades of “C” or better. Admitted students receive an official transfer credit evaluation within two to three weeks of acceptance.

UT utilizes www.collegetransfer.net to provide transfer students a quick way to estimate how their courses might transfer from their current institution. This website utilizes historical data from students who have previously transferred from a wide number of institutions.

Students may earn up to 30 credit hours by submitting satisfactory results on CLEP Examinations (College Level Examination Program).

The University's class levels are determined as follows:
  • Freshman (0-27 credit hours)
  • Sophomore (28-59 credit hours)
  • Junior (60-89 credit hours)
  • Senior (90+ credit hours)
