- Why am I being charged out-of-state tuition but I am a Tennessee resident?
In order to receive in-state tuition and benefits, students must verify their residency. Many students verify their residency by filling out the FAFSA. Some opt to turn in an EVEA document instead. EVEA refers to the Tennessee Eligibility Verification for Entitlements Act. Find out how to verify here.
- What is a Financial Responsibility Statement (FRS)?
All students who register online through Eagle Online via Tech Express will be presented with a Financial Responsibility Statement (FRS). This statement will serve as documentation of the financial process and expectations at Tennessee Tech University related to enrolled students. While the FRS does not introduce any new policies, procedures, and responsibilities, it does summarize existing policies, procedures, and responsibilities related to student enrollment. Specifically, the FRS covers:
- Fee Payment
- Financial Aid Disbursement and Requirements
- Communication Methods
- Collection of Defaulted Debt
- Tax Information
The FRS will be presented to every student once each semester and require their acknowledgment by accepting the FRS before proceeding with registration. The FRS presented to students can be seen here.
- Why am I receiving an email from the Bursar's Office?
Any time a student receives an email from the Bursar's Office there is usually action that is needed to be taken by the student. Please do not ignore these emails and read them in their entirety. If you still have questions after reading the email, please contact the Bursar's Office at email@example.com or (931) 372-3311

- How do I get my money if my account has a credit balance?
The quickest option is to sign up for Direct Deposit through EaglePay via Tech Express. If students do not sign up for direct deposit a check will be written. These checks will be available each Thursday after being process on the student account beginning approximately 14 days into the semester. Checks can be picked up in the Business Office during office hours M-F 8:00AM - 4:30PM for one week after the check has been printed. Checks older that one week will be mailed to the student's address on file.
Direct deposits (daily) and paper checks (weekly) will continue to be processed routinely after Registration day by the Business Office. An email message will be sent to the student each time a direct deposit or check is processed.
- Why do I have to confirm enrollment?
Confirming enrollment is necessary for everyone. It should be noted that making your FULL payment of fees is considered confirmation. However, if your fees are being paid via financial aid, scholarships, assistantships, etc., you MUST confirm that you will be attending classes even if you have a credit balance. Failure to confirm will result in losing your schedule and having to re-register for the same classes.
Students must confirm their enrollment to ensure they intend to attend the applicable semester. If you register for classes and decide not to attend and do not confirm, your classes will be automatically deleted. However, if you confirm enrollment, you have to officially withdraw from your classes or you will receive a grade of "F".
Once again, enrollment confirmation is necessary even if your fees are fully covered by a scholarship, graduate assistantship, or other financial aid. Full payment of fees will automatically confirm your enrollment.
Everyone must confirm by the applicable deadline in order to retain his/her schedule.
Enrollment may be confirmed via the Web.
NOTE: Students who pay fees and confirm enrollment by the deadline but decide not to attend must withdraw by notifying the Office of the Registrar, (931) 372-3317.
