Freshman Students

Trevecca Nazarene University invites applications from students who will contribute to, as well as benefit from the Trevecca experience. An applicant to TNU is considered on an individual basis and evaluated on the student's total picture of academic preparation, potential and personal records. Future students are encouraged to visit the campus to learn more about what Trevecca has to offer.

Undergraduate admission is for the student desiring to complete an associate or bachelor degree program (or courses for personal enrichment) in a traditional track.

Deadlines for applying are August 1 for fall semester and December 1 for spring semester.

Applicants are admitted upon a rolling basis and a decision letter is mailed to each applicant as soon as all credentials are submitted and a decision is reached.

Freshman Admission Process

STEP 1:  Submit Your Application

FREE Application

OR Submit a hard copy application

Applying online is FREE, but if you prefer to submit a hard copy (paper) application, you may do so by submitting a $25.00 nonrefundable application fee with your hard copy application. Make checks or money orders payable to Trevecca Nazarene University. Send your check, along with your completed hard copy application, to:

Office of Admissions
Trevecca Nazarene University
333 Murfreesboro Road
Nashville, TN 37210-2877

STEP 2: Submit your ACT & SAT Reports

Submit an official ACT report (optional requirement of applicants 23 years of age or older and/or high school graduate of five (5) years or more unless required to meet the conditions of the Freshman Admissions Policy). The ACT is available in local designated testing centers. The results will automatically be sent to the University if the applicant specifies Trevecca as his or her college choice (ACT code is 4016.). The ACT data base is used in academic advising and is the official academic documentation for admission. SAT scores are acceptable although ACT is preferred. Applicants are not required to submit the essay component of these exams. An existing ACT report can be requested by writing to ACT, Box 414, Iowa City, Iowa 52240. ACT/SAT scores on an official high school transcript are acceptable (SAT code is 1809.).

The ACT/SAT scores are used to determine entry-level courses for English composition, mathematics, and reading. Students who place at higher levels will be able to waive beginning courses. Students who do not demonstrate college-level competencies in these areas will be required to successfully complete developmental courses in one or two semesters of their first year to reach the necessary competencies to qualify for college level courses.

STEP 3: Submit your High School Transcript

Request an official high school transcript to be mailed directly from the institution to Trevecca's Office of Admissions. If tentative admittance is desired, request a high school transcript through the end of the junior year. A final transcript stating date of graduation must be forwarded immediately after graduation because many high school offices are closed during the summer. If one is eligible by GED, an official score report and partial high school transcript must be sent directly from each reporting institution.

STEP 4: Submit your Academic Transcript

Request an official academic transcript be forwarded directly to Trevecca from any college/university where you completed any dual enrollment or concurrent credit while you were in high school.

STEP 5:  Enrollment Deposit

Submit a $200 Enrollment Deposit by May 1 for Fall semester enrollment or by December 15 for Spring semester enrollment.

STEP 6:  Medical Health History & Immunization Forms

Submit the confidential Medical Health History and Immunization Forms to Trevecca's Student Health Clinic prior to registration. All information on the form will be maintained in strictest confidence by the professional medical staff.
