We are currently experiencing a high volume of application submissions. Please allow up to two weeks following the date of submission of your application or other materials before contacting the Office of Graduate Admissions regarding your application status. We are committed to making every effort to process your materials in a timely manner. You may check your application status online at http://graduateadmissions.utk.edu/check.shtml.
