Your Financial Aid information will be reviewed for a financial aid award or non-award
decision upon receipt of ALL required documents and admission to the University.
If awarded, the aid information will be posted on the myMemphis portal.
NOTE: Summer 2015 is part of the 2014-2015 year so you must have the results of the 2014-2015
FAFSA on file for aid consideration. Separate financial aid awards are processed for
Summer semester. If you will require aid for the Summer semester, complete a Summer
Update Form located on the Financial Aid Forms page (available in early April each year).
NOTE: All correspondence regarding the status of your financial aid is e-mailed to your
University of Memphis e-mail address (or, if not yet admitted, the e-mail address
you provided on your FAFSA). The Financial Aid Office no longer mails out award notifications.
If you have any questions regarding the status of your aid application, checkmyMemphis.
