Cost for Freshman CUSTOMS

The cost for freshmen students attending CUSTOMS is $35.
 This fee allows access to the CUSTOMS Online program, on-campus orientation activities on the date selected, virtual academic advising and course registration.

We encourage participation from the family members of freshman in CUSTOMS, and we continue to believe your involvement is crucial in this transition to the MTSU community. We are asking that each student limit to two guests in attendance at the on campus CUSTOMS session.  The fee for each guest to attend CUSTOMS is $20.  Please note that CUSTOMS is not designed for children under 12 years of age.

The fees do not include lunch during the program, but there will be several on campus dining locations available for you to experience our delicious MT Dining options during CUSTOMS. 

We are also unable to offer on campus housing accommodations this year, due to COVID guidelines.  There are many hotels available in Murfreesboro, if you need over night accommodations.

Once you send your registration and money in, you will be assigned to one of your four choices for the session. If for some reason you will not be able to attend the session assigned, you may request a refund up until the day of the session you are assigned begins. Once the session begins, no refunds will be given.
