Information for Newly Admitted Students

CONGRATULATIONS on your acceptance into the historic and prestigious Tuskegee University. You have been admitted to one of the top-ranked HBCUs in the country.  Becoming a member of the Skegee Scholars is a great accomplishment. The checklist below indicates the required steps to finalize your admission and enrollment at Tuskegee University.

To begin the acceptance process, as a reminder, pay your non-refundable pre-enrollment fee of $500 by the deadline stated in your acceptance letter. For those students who were offered merit-based scholarships directly from the admissions office, we encourage the pre-enrollment fee be paid by the deadline indicated on your award letter. Please note that March 31st is the priority deadline and June 30th is the final payment deadline. This final deadline date allows us to prepare your first semester class schedule and to reserve a place in one of the residence halls. Some minor exceptions may be made for students who are not able to meet one of the above required deadlines on a case--by-case basis.
