School Details

Tennessee Temple University is a four-year private, Baptist institution of higher learning that offers a focus in the liberal arts and ministry.


Tennessee Temple University is located in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The mission is to challenge students academically and help them grow in their faith and love God with their minds. Tennessee Temple was founded in 1946 as a Bible school where preachers, missionaries, and other Christian workers could receive training. Originally founded as a two-year college and seminary, the school eventually expanded to becoming a four-year university and seminary in 1979.

With a 100% admission rate, all applicants have to do is follow the admission requirements in order to register for classes. TTU offers ‘Experience Days’ where applicants may visit the school and engage in different events and programs to help them better understand what being a student at TTU is like in order to better their decision to attend. The application itself is incredibly simple. Applicants visit the website and fill out the proper application that applies to their status as either a residential, online, graduate, doctorate, or seminary student. Once the application has been submitted, the applicant will receive word as to payments and how to register for their first classes.


Tennessee Temple is a relatively smaller school therefore the focus on individual students is greater. The student/faculty ratio is 15:1. With a total enrollment of 468, this institution aims to provide students with an opportunity to grow in their faith within a tight knit community. All classes are taught by Christian professors who incorporate their respective fields of profession with a biblical perspective. Students can apply for online programs, residential programs and seminary. The online programs are for those students who are unable to physically attend university due to conflicts. TTU is organized into three academic divisions that offer degrees at the undergraduate, graduate and doctorate levels. Students can choose an academic program within the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Business and Leadership, and the School of Theology and Ministry. The undergraduate curriculum is centered on providing students with a Christ-centered education with Bible courses and a general studies program in several major fields which include ministry, business, education, liberal arts and sciences or for graduate studies.


A student taking between 12-15 credits a semester is considered a full-time student and their tuition rate is $11,250 per year. Those who are part-time students pay $375 per credit hour. TTU recognizes that financing university is a daunting task for some, therefore they make tuition rates as low as they can and still provide a quality education. Financial aid is also available to those students who qualify. The school offers many opportunities for students to receive aid either through loans, scholarships, work, and grants. More information about financial aid and the different processes to receive aid are located on the universities website.
