Welcome to Trevecca!

The ACT and SAT. College visits, applications and transcripts—it’s all over now! You’ve made your college decision, and now it’s time to get to know more about the place you’ll call home for the next few years. At Trevecca, you’ll find a committed community of faculty, staff and students who want to help you discover your calling and prepare you to make a difference in the world. We’re so excited to see where your Trevecca story will take you!

At Trevecca, becoming a student is a two-step process that includes ENCOUNTER + Orientation. Both play a vital role in connecting you with the Trevecca community and preparing you for life as a college student.

Due to updates from local Nashville authorities, Trevecca will be hosting a virtual ENCOUNTER and ENCOUNTER (on campus) in addition to orientation this year.

July ENCOUNTER (on-campus) - Canceled

Due to COVID-19 regulations, July ENCOUNTER has been canceled.


Orientation might as well be called College 101. Set for August, Orientation is required for all incoming students. After you move into your residence hall and wave goodbye to your parents, you’ll finalize your class schedule, learn all the nuts and bolts of being a Trevecca student—including our digital and community life standards—and take part in a few Trevecca traditions.

Two key Trevecca traditions are Trevecca Field Day and City LINK Service Day. These annual events will allow you to experience two key components of the Trevecca experience: community and service.

Students will receive an RSVP with information about ENCOUNTER + Orientation. If you cannot attend ENCOUNTER, please register for Orientation by August 1. After reserving your spot, you’ll receive confirmation from the Office of Admissions with further details on the event.
