Tiger Take-Off

Tiger Take-Off is the starting line to your Campbellsville Experience

Tiger Take-Off is brand new experience offered this year designed to be a catalyst for student engagement. Similar to the former “Priority Registrations”, this program will feature traditional activities such as campus tours, social events, and meetings with academic advisors with an added overnight experience. These activities are designed to help students feel more comfortable and confident as they begin their college journey and give students the opportunity for early registration of classes and offerings.

The dates for Tiger Take-Off are as follows:

  • Friday, May 10th (One Day event)
  • Thursday and Friday, June 6th and 7th (Overnight Event)
  • Monday, July 8th (One Day Event)

  • Complete your Enrollment Packet
  • Complete your Housing Application
  • Accept your Financial Aid Awards

If you have previously taken the ACT, SAT, COMPASS, KYOTE, or Accuplacer tests, please send your scores to the Enrollment Office before attending your registration event.
