Middle Tennee State University
Histy
In 1909, the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee moved “to provide for the improvement of the
system of Public Education of the State of Tennessee,
that is to say, to establish a General Education Fund.”
The major thrust of the “improvement” was the establishment of three normals or teacher-training institutions, one in each of the grand divisions of the state.
Considerable competition among communities preceded the State Board of Education’s decision to assign
the middle Tennessee institution to Murfreesboro, a
choice promoted by Andrew L. Todd and others.
An agreement made with the State Board of Education included $180,000 from the county and city to
purchase land and help with construction costs. The
Murfreesboro City Council met in special session and
unanimously voted to fund its share of $80,000, but
there was opposition in the County Court and the
initial vote failed. Only after a resolution was read
stating that “it is to the interest and advantage of said
County, and citizens, to have said Normal School for
the Middle Division of the said State of Tennessee, located in said Rutherford County...” did the body vote
in favor of providing $100,000. Because of that early
support by community leaders, what we know today
as MTSU was established, bringing economic, cultural,
and educational impact to the area. Now, decades
later, the community and University still are mutually
supportive, and the University remains grateful for
that relationship.
Campaigning was lively for several sites in and around
Murfreesboro (whose population in 1910 was 4,679)
for the location of the campus. The ultimate choice
was property owned jointly by Tom Harrison and Joe
Black which lay “just beyond the eastern town limits
on a gentle swell of land.” Eight acres were donated,
and the State Board of Education paid $5,000 for 20
adjacent acres.
The accepted bid for the first four buildings—a classroom and office building now known as Kirksey Old
Main; a women’s dormitory, now Rutledge Hall; a
kitchen and dining hall, now the Tom H. Jackson Building; and a heating plant—was $137,855. There were
virtually no trees because part of the land had been
in crops only the season before, and a wet weather
stream affected another large portion of the acreage.
This was the setting on September 11, 1911, when
Middle Tennessee State Normal School, with 19
faculty members, opened its doors, offering a twoyear teacher-training program and a four-year high
school to 125 students. Each of those students paid a
$2.00 registration fee; room rent was $1.50 per week
2
General Information
(in advance) and dining hall food was $10.00 per
month that first year. The dreams and visions of many
individuals came to fruition that early fall day, making
it possible for thousands of students through the years
to pursue their dreams.
As the world and those dreams changed, the institution changed. Degrees, programs, departments,
schools, colleges, centers, and chairs were added, and
the school’s name evolved:
1911
1925
1943
1965
Middle Tennessee State Normal School
Middle Tennessee State Teachers College
Middle Tennessee State College
Middle Tennessee State University
And the students came—sometimes in years when
enrollment elsewhere declined—and they continue to
come. Enrollment passed the 10,000 mark in Fall 1971
and today is over 23,000.
Since 1911, over 96,000 students have graduated
from MTSU. These students can be found all over the
globe in just about every profession imaginable. Each
year, the MTSU Alumni Association recognizes representatives of that impressive body by honoring three
Distinguished Alumni and presenting a Young Alumni
Achievement Award.
Thousands of faculty members, administrators, and
staff have worked through the years teaching, advising students, and operating and maintaining the complex institution. History is tied closely to the person at
the helm. Below are the presidents who have guided
MTSU’s progress through the decades.

With full recognition of the foresight the founders
had, we have to wonder if they could have imagined
the Normal School evolving into a major university
with nationally recognized programs. This progress
has continued through the years because of people
who looked ahead, who insisted on quality, and who
weren’t afraid to break new ground.
Celebrate this journey through the years with us, and
share with us a vision for the future.

ADMISSION AS A TRANSFER STUDENT
An undergraduate who has previously registered at any college or university must apply as a transfer student. Students who have completed 24 or more semester hours are guaranteed admission with a cumulative transfer GPA
of 2.0 or higher. Transfer applicants who have earned 24 or fewer semester hours or 35 or fewer quarter hours
from a postsecondary institution are required to meet both transfer and freshmen admission standards. All transfer
students who have not earned a bachelor’s degree are required to submit a high school transcript.
Source: MTSU Admissions Office
Graduate Admission Standards
Minimum Admission: GRE, MAT, or GMAT satisfactory scores
ADMISSION AS A DEGREE-SEEKING STUDENT
Graduate applicants must have earned a bachelor’s degree. Exceptions are those seeking doctoral or Ed.S. degrees,
which require a prior master’s degree. All applicants to the College of Graduate Studies must have an overall undergraduate grade point average of 2.75 (on a 4.0 scale) to be considered for unconditional admission. In addition
to the admission application and the fee of $25.00 (U.S. citizens) or $30.00 (non U.S. citizens), all degree-seeking
applicants must submit the following:
Official transcripts certifying coursework from each college or university attended. Official transcripts must be mailed directly
from the institution to MTSU.
Letters of reference, if required by the graduate program.
Satisfactory scores on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), Miller Analogies Test (MAT), or Graduate Management
Admissions Test (GMAT) tests. The GRE, MAT, or GMAT result is used in the evaluation of the academic qualifications of all
graduate applicants. Each graduate program has identified a minimum combined GRE or MAT score (GMAT accepted) that it
considers indicative of potential for a high level of academic performance. However, admission decisions will be based on the
overall academic record of the applicant (particularly in comparison with other applicants being accepted into the program),
as well as other relevant materials such as letters of recommendation.
All international applicants must score a 195 (computer-based), 71 (Internet-based), or 525 (paper-based) on the Test of English
as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), 85 on the University of Michigan English Proficiency Exam (UMELI), or 6 on the International
English Language Testing System (IELTS). MTSU also accepts successful completion of level 112 of ELS as proof of English language proficiency. Applicants who have received degrees from international universities must have a course-by-course evaluation of transcripts from one of the evaluation agencies designated on the College of Graduate Studies Web site.
Additional requirements may be applied by individual graduate programs, including application deadlines.

University HonorsCollege
Built on a program in its fourth decade, the University Honors College at Middle Tennessee State University offers
an undergraduate education of exceptional quality and value to a small but diverse student population deeply
committed to scholarship. The Honors College fosters the academic excellence and nurturing environment of a
small, select, private liberal arts college with the broader resources of a major university. The college fulfills its mission by providing programs of high academic quality; creating a
supportive, student-centered learning environment; partnering with individuals and groups
within the University community and beyond; and serving as a source of institutional pride. In 2004, the Honors College moved to the 21,000-square-foot Paul W. Martin Sr. Honors
Building, one of the finest honors facilities in the country. Crowned by a stately bell tower,
the building is an architectural jewel on the MTSU campus.
Current enrollment includes dozens of high school valedictorians and several National Merit Finalists. The Honors
College is also home to the prestigious Buchanan Fellowship program, named in honor of MTSU alumnus and Nobel Prize winner Dr. James M. Buchanan. About two-thirds of our graduates enter graduate school, medical school,
law school, or some other profession-related school or college shortly after graduation. These students have been
accepted at institutions such as the University of Chicago, Emory, Harvard, Michigan State, Ohio State, Oxford,
Purdue, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, William and Mary, and Yale. To be admitted to the University Honors College as an entering freshman, a student must have a high school GPA
greater than or equal to 3.50 and an ACT composite score greater than or equal to 25 (SAT greater than or equal
to 1160). There is no essay to write or separate admission form to complete (with the exception of the Buchanan
Fellowship). Transfer students or established MTSU students who have completed at least 12 semester hours are
eligible to enroll in Honors courses provided that their cumulative GPA is greater than or equal to 3.25. To graduate from the Honors College, students must complete 20 credit hours of lower-division Honors coursework plus an
additional 11 hours of upper-division Honors coursework including the capstone thesis project. In addition to small, supportive classes and the challenging, scholarly Honors environment, Honors students are eligible for priority registration, special assistance from the Honors College advisor, and support from the Undergraduate Fellowship Office. The pinnacle of student achievement in the Honors program–a successful thesis defense–is
celebrated by a traditional pealing of the bells
in the Honors Building tower. Graduates of
the Honors College also receive special recognition on their transcripts, special diplomas,
and beautiful bronze Honors College medallions. Direct questions to the Honors College

eginning Fall 2007, Accepted Applicants is the only category tracked by Undergraduate Admissions; counts for all other applicant
categories are reflected in the undergraduate section totals.
** Because of the difference in the way the codes are captured in Banner, there is a large variance in the count of Graduate Accepted
Applicants and Incomplete Applicants beginning Fall 2007.

Athletic
The Middle Tennessee athletic program is in its ninth year as a member of the Sun Belt Conference (SBC). The Sun Belt, one of
just 11 I-A football conferences in the country and a member of the Bowl Championship Series, is rated one of the top leagues
in baseball and men’s and women’s basketball. In just eight years in the SBC, Middle Tennessee has won the Vic Bubas Cup (all
sports trophy) on four occasions including three of the last five years. The Sun Belt also has a voice in the future of college athletics. Thanks to its Division I-A (FSB) football membership, the league has a permanent seat on the NCAA’s Board of Directors.

MTSU Alumni in the United States
Centersof Excellence
The General Assembly and the Governor of Tennessee together announced in 1984 the creation of a new Centers
of Excellence program for Tennessee public higher education. The centers, to be selected through a statewide
competitive process, would build on the research strengths of the Tennessee Board of Regents universities and
the campuses of the University of Tennessee. Their purpose would be to focus the capabilities of public higher
education on service to the people of Tennessee by expanding the state’s research base, thereby increasing its
national and international stature and its economic competitiveness. MTSU is the site of two Centers of Excellence.
THE CENTER FOR HISTORIC PRESERVATION
Established 1984
Carroll Van West, Director
The Center for Historic Preservation was one of the first Centers of Excellence established in Tennessee. The
primary emphasis of the center’s work is to stimulate quality economic development through careful use of
heritage resources in community development. It is a research and public service institute committed to the
identification, conservation, protection, and enhancement of the historic environment. Through its varied projects,
programs, and activities, the center responds directly to the needs and concerns of communities and organizations
working to include heritage in their future economic development strategies. The center provides leadership and
assistance on a local, state, regional, and national basis. It is a national clearinghouse for research in a number of
areas of the historic preservation field including information resource management, regional planning, heritage
education, rural preservation, and heritage tourism. The center is a past recipient of the Tennessee Higher
Education Commission’s distinguished accomplished center status.
THE CENTER FOR POPULAR MUSIC
Established 1985
Paul F. Wells, Director
The Center for Popular Music was founded to foster advanced research and scholarship in American popular
music and to promote an awareness of and appreciation for America’s diverse musical culture. The center
recognizes popular music as a unique form of human expression that has always occupied a significant place
in American cultural history—one that must be studied in the context of the variety of artistic, cultural, social,
commercial, and technological factors that have shaped the music. The center maintains one of the country’s
largest and most comprehensive music archives, containing more than 120,000 sound recordings, 60,000 pieces
of sheet music, and 15,000 books and scores. It serves as a resource for regional, national, and international
researchers. The center’s outreach activities include the production of numerous conferences, seminars, and
concerts, as well as the publication of books, recordings, and public radio documentaries. The center received the
Tennessee Higher Education Commission’s designation as an accomplished center in 1989.
66 Centers and Chairs
Endowed Chairs
Several academic programs are enriched through the establishment of chairs dedicated to the support of a
particular discipline. The chairholders may be full-time faculty members or individuals from the appropriate
business or professional field who hold special seminars or lecture series. Two chairs, funded by gifts to the
University Foundation, are administered through the Economics and Finance Department:

Insurance strives to provide specialized training for insurance students to prepare them for careers in various facets
of the insurance industry; to recruit and counsel students and to interest promising students in insurance careers;
to develop an insurance curriculum that will prepare students for examinations for agents’ and brokers’ licenses;
to provide general training in insurance for students in other disciplines; to develop and administer cooperative
education and intern programs for students who choose the insurance concentration or a minor in the field; and
to engage in public service activities such as continuing education and industry-related research programs for
members of the insurance community.

William F. Ford, Chairholder
The Weatherford Chair of Finance was established to honor Jack O. Weatherford, one of Tennessee’s and the

career at the Murfreesboro Bank and Trust Company, where he rose through the ranks to chair and CEO. Holding
top positions in national banking organizations, he led his bank through a series of mergers involving acquisitions
of smaller area banks. The Weatherford Chair of Finance provides specialized training for students interested
in banking careers. It also operates a placement service for such students, provides scholarships for them, and
conducts research and seminars on topics of interest to the banking community.

JamesE. Walker Library
In 1912, the first library for Middle Tennessee State Normal School
was established by newly hired librarian Betty Avent Murfree. She
started the collection with donations of 75 books from persons both
on and off campus. The library was housed on the third floor of
Old Main overlooking the main entrance, and its collection eventually grew to 2,000 volumes. By 1925, a separate library building
was needed for the newly named Middle Tennessee State Teachers
College. Designed to accommodate 20,000 volumes, the structure
was erected across from Old Main on the site where Peck Hall now
stands. In 1958, a new library building was constructed at a cost of
$500,000. Located east of the older library and between the Science Building and Jones Hall, this new building was
to hold a growing collection of up to 150,000 volumes. It was named the Andrew L. Todd Library. In 1970, an addition to Todd Library was required to meet the needs of a growing university. Although this building was designed
to contain 225,000 volumes, over 600,000 volumes filled its shelves.
In spring 1999, MTSU again opened a new library to meet the needs of a rapidly growing student body. It accommodates a collection of over one million bound volumes and provides seating for 2,600. The library includes a
four-floor atrium that serves as the central organizing element for the interior spaces and brings controlled, natural
daylight to readers and study spaces in the building. In fall 2001, the new library, a visible sign of the University’s
commitment to quality education, was named James E. Walker Library in honor of a former MTSU president who
was a friend of the library, a leader in higher education, and a partner in securing funding for the new building.
The building infrastructure includes an extensive electronic information distribution system connected to the
campus-wide, fiber-optic backbone. Library instruction rooms are equipped to support multimedia instruction
for accessing and retrieving data from electronic information resources. With 300 computer workstations, laptop
computer checkout, a variety of study areas, and responsive services, the library is focused on student learning and
faculty research support. The building is open 95.5 hours per week with resources available at all times through
computer access.

Continuing Education and Distance
Learning
The mission of the College of Continuing Education and Distance Learning is to extend resources of the University
through partnerships, outreach, and distance learning to provide high quality educational opportunities for lifelong
learning. The college plays an integral role in meeting the goals of the University by offering academic, personal
enrichment, and professional programs.
To achieve its goals the college is divided into two main areas–credit and non-credit. The credit area coordinates
distance learning, off-campus courses, summer school, evening classes, and advising for the Bachelor of University
Studies degree and the Regents Online Degree Program. The non-credit area caters to professionals interested in
updating skills and groups or organizations desiring some type of educational experience.
Credit Area
Distance Learning Courses
Distance learning courses include courses via videoconferencing, telecourses, correspondence, and online courses.
Videoconferencing technology allows courses to be instructed at one site while being received simultaneously at multiple
sites. Telecourses are courses offered via cable television or videotape (Telecourses were discontinued after the Spring
2006 semester). Correspondence courses involve individual, independent instruction of a student by an instructor on a
one-to-one basis. Online courses are accessed over the Internet through e-mail, newsgroups, distribution lists, and the
World Wide Web. More information about distance learning courses is available by calling (615) 898-5611.

Professional Development
The Professional Development (non credit) department of the College for Continuing Education and Distance
Learning has been extending continuing education services and programming resources through a department
designed specifically to address the lifelong learning needs of its students. This area has evolved over time, but its
mission has remained constant—to provide educational opportunities to non-traditional students.
Exciting breakthroughs in communications technologies are changing the very fabric of society. The boundaries of
distance, time, and accessibility are pushed to reach out to students wherever they are. Programs are offered in
a variety of modes, helping people of all ages achieve degrees and certificates as well as accomplish professional
development goals.
The diverse educational opportunities, quality programs, and dedicated service give students access to the vast
and valuable resources of our university. We go the distance to make lifelong learning a reality for anyone,
anywhere, because we believe everyone deserves the opportunity to improve their quality of life through higher
education.
