Welcome to Fall 2020

The Graduate School is happy to welcome all the graduate students to UT for fall 2020! If this is your first semester, know that we are here to help you succeed in your program, so let us know how we can help you. If you are returning, welcome back! We’re here for you, as well. No matter how different things might look this semester, we are glad to have you (safely) back with us. To help everyone stay safe, we are encouraging virtual or phone appointments, whenever possible, so contact us at or 865-974-2475.

Dean Dixie L. Thompson has prepared a welcome message for you, to express her anticipation for the upcoming semester. She also wants to help you know how to find answers to the questions you may have this fall regarding campus life in these different times, whether it be on our website or on UT’s Coronavirus website.

Grab your books, get your mask, complete your daily self-screen, and let’s get started!
