  1. Apply for Admission.
  2. Pay the non-refundable application fee ($25).
  3. Provide an official transcript of all high school credits with a minimum of 3 years of high school work included.
  4. Provide a standardized exam result (ACT or SAT)

Students offered admission to the University of Memphis will be notified of the decision in writing. Most decisions are made within 24-48 hours of becoming complete. At times, more information may be requested (7th semester grades, 8th semester grades, new/improved test results, etc.).

High School Curriculum Requirements

The following list of high school units represents the minimum high school academic requirements:

  • English (4 units)
  • Visual and/or Performing Arts (1 unit)

Standardized Exam Requirements

All students must provide a standardized exam result (typically the ACT and/or SAT) in support of their application for admission. Standardized exam results are considered valid only if they were completed within 3 calendar years of the term for which a student plans to enroll. The University also uses the ACT or SAT sub-scores to determine placement levels in certain areas. Be sure to submit all standardized exam results with your application for admission. There is no score that alone will guarantee admission.
