Applying to colleges and navigating the different processes can be overwhelming at times. To help, use this step-by-step guide to the Tuskegee undergraduate application process.
Application deadlines approach quickly. Be sure to have your application submitted or postmarked by May 1st. This will give you access to Priority Housing and to Financial Assistance (including scholarships).
If you need assistance, reach out to Warren J. Buchanan Sr., Special Assistant to the Dean for Student Outreach at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Before you begin your application, you need to create an online account by following the directions below. It’s easy to do, ensures that all your personal information is stored securely, and gives you the flexibility to work on your application in more than one sitting if you so choose.
Complete all sections of the form that apply to freshmen applicants. The first sections provide us with information about you and your parents or guardians. Next, we ask about your high school record and SAT or ACT scores. The remainder of the form addresses your academic and extracurricular interests.
Don't forget to fill out the TU Financial Data Form and complete the TU New Student Housing Application and Roommate Form.
There are so many ways to get involved here on campus. CAENS alone provides ample opportunities to participate in activities related to your major, including the National Women in Agriculture Association, Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences (MANRRS), Pre-Vet Club, and Gamma Sigma Delta, the honor society of agriculture. You can learn about these organizations and other activities that make up the CAENS experience on our website.
We will need a copy of your official ACT or SAT scores. An official copy means that it comes directly from the testing organization. When you register for the ACT or SAT, request that your scores be sent to Tuskegee University using the following school code, depending on which test you are taking. | SAT – 1813, ACT – 0050
Ask your guidance counselor to send a copy of your official high school transcript to Tuskegee. Remember that counselors are busy this time of year, so make your request early to give them plenty of time to get it done — you can also send a thank you note or email to show your appreciation!
The last requirement for a complete application is a $25 non-refundable fee. You can pay it online by debit/credit card or check when you submit your application, or mail it in with a completed paper application. An approved fee waiver can also be submitted if you are unable to pay the fee. Talk to your guidance counselor about how to request a fee waiver.
We also encourage you to complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Tuskegee University's Federal School Code is 001050. The priority deadline to submit the FAFSA is March 31st of each academic year, but early application is strongly encouraged.
Tuskegee Admissions Office staff will personally review your application. You can log into your online account at any time and check your activity log, which shows your submitted application and receipt of all other materials. Decisions are made on a rolling basis as applications are received. You will receive a decision by mail.
Once you’ve applied to colleges, it’s still important to keep working hard at academics. Fall, and even spring grades, can be used for scholarship decisions and to maintain your enrollment status.
Once you have been accepted to Tuskegee University, it is imperative you pay your pre-enrollment fee by the deadline indicated on your acceptance letter. This $400 fee secures your spot in a residence hall and finalizes your acceptance to Tuskegee University! For more information on deadlines, click here.
The payment can be made via phone between 9am-12pm and 1pm-3pm CST using a credit or debit card. We also accept mailed payments in the form or check, cashier's check and money orders using the address below. Make sure to indicate your Student ID or SSN, as we cannot process any payment without that information.
