Welcome!  The Office of Financial Aid administers federal, state, and institutional aid programs to qualified students.

SCAM ALERT

Students and parents need to be aware of financial aid scams that generally take place throughout the year.  A family should be extremely wary of any company that charges money in order to process a financial aid application for you.  Remember that the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is a FREE application.  Neither the US Department of Education nor the University of Memphis works with any company or organization that would require a family to pay to apply for federal financial aid.
