If you are a student at another university and you would like to take one or more classes at MTSU during the summer, you can apply as a visiting student. An official transcript from the institution last attended will need to be sent to the MTSU Admissions Office by one of the following methods:
Middle Tennessee State University
1301 East Main Street
Murfreesboro, TN 37132
The process is detailed below but is very simple in essence.
1) Fill out an application form (be sure and mark the transient student box)
2) Pay the $25 admission fee
3) Provide an official transcript with a 2.0 GPA
4) Your admission should be completed within 1-3 days, depending upon the number of applications we’re processing.
At the end of the summer just complete a Transcript Request Form and we’ll be glad to send an official transcript of your course back to your home institution.
Application forms can be found at Undergraduate Admissions.
Once admitted, you may register online via PipelineMT. If you have never accessed your PipelineMT account, go to https://lum4prod.mtsu.edu/site/activate.htm and follow the instructions to activate your account.
The Summer 2014 course schedule can be found at Records and Scheduling in text format. Once admitted, log in to PipelineMT. Click on the RaiderNet tab and select the Student tab. Click on the Registration menu link, select Look Up Classes, and select the desired term.
