Congratulations on your acceptance to Truett-McConnell College. We are so excited that you will soon be joining the TMC community. Now that you are accepted, you are probably wondering, "What's next?" With that in mind, we created this page to help guide you through the process from now to your arrival on campus.
FASFA and Financial Aid
Students applying for Financial Aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The application is available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. When completing the FAFSA, please make sure TMC receives your information by using the school code 001597. The FAFSA can be filed beginning January 1 and should be submitted by June 1 for priority consideration. All other financial aid questions can be directed to Financial Aid Office at 706-865-2134, ext. 246. Once all required forms have been submitted, the Financial Aid Office can send you an award letter.
Once you have made your decision to attend Truett-McConnell College, you should submit a $150 enrollment deposit to secure your space in the incoming class. $100 of this is a tuition deposit and $50 covers the student orientation fee. The tuition deposit will be credited to your student account and is refundable up to 30 days before the first day of class. Requests for refunds must be made in writing to the Admissions Office.
PRE-REGISTRATION DATES SUMMER 2013
Once the tuition deposit is paid, students may then attend one of the pre-registration days to secure a class schedule for the fall. You should receive information in the mail on how to sign up for your day of choice. The dates for summer 2013 are:
