As a WGU Tennessee student, you will be expected to communicate clearly in writing and during
conversations with your mentor and WGU Tennessee staff. If English is not your native language,
you will need to submit proof of a qualifying score on the internet-based Test of
English as a Foreign Language Test (TOEFL iBT). WGU Tennessee requires a qualifying score
of 80 or higher. WGU’s TOEFL code is 3949. Speak to an Enrollment
Counselor to get additional information. (For more information specifically
on the TOEFL, visit the TOEFL website.)
Will you admit students living outside the U.S.?
At the present time, WGU Tennessee is accepting applications only from individuals living in
the United States and select geographical areas of Canada. (The exceptions are U.S.
active-duty military personnel and their families at overseas installations and
individuals living in Guam, Puerto Rico, or the U.S. Virgin Islands.)
Unfortunately, we have discovered we cannot always guarantee that the educational
experience for students living outside the United States will meet our high standards
for quality and convenience. It is our expectation that these problems will be solved
in future years. An Enrollment Counselor has more
information about which areas are eligible to submit applications.
What if my prior college was outside the U.S.?
Applicants who have completed coursework outside of the United States must provide
one copy of official transcripts or certified true copies with official English
translation of all documents. Applicants are responsible for submitting transcripts
that have been evaluated for U.S. equivalence.
What if my prior college no longer exists?
If you attended a college that no longer exists, you may be able to get transcripts
from a state agency, such as a Department of Consumer Affairs or Department of Higher
Education. If the college was taken over by another school, check with the current
school. You can also submit any unofficial copies of transcripts or course records
you may have, although we can’t promise that you will be able to waive any WGU Tennessee requirements.
Do I have to pay the application fee to be admitted?
Yes. You may talk to an Enrollment Counselor without
paying the application fee, but the fee must be paid before you can be admitted.
The application fee helps defray our costs associated with admissions, transcript
collection, enrolling students, etc. Note: It is against federal regulations to
use financial aid for an application fee.
