Payment of University Fees and Charges: Registration (enrollment) fees may be paid by cash, check, money order, Visa/Mastercard/Discover,
Financial Aid/Scholarship Award(s), or University Tiger Fund$ account. Fees may be
paid as soon as the student registers for classes; however, all registration fees
and outstanding debts to the University are due by the fee payment deadline date noted
in the Fee Payment Section of the Bursar’s website at http://bf.memphis.edu/finance/bursar/. The University offers a deferred (installment) payment plan to assist students with
the payment of enrollment fees for the Fall and Spring semesters (not available for
Summer terms). Please refer to the website above for complete information.
Returned Checks/Charge Card Drafts: It is expected that any check or credit card draft given to the University for any
reason will be honored by the bank on which it is drawn. Any check or draft dishonored
by the bank on which it is drawn may be presented a second time at the discretion
of the University. A $20.00 returned item fee will be assessed for any check/draft
The privilege of making payments to the University by personal check and check cashing
privileges will be revoked for any student who has had more than one returned check/draft
within a twelve-month period. The suspension of this privilege will be for a period
of one year from the date the last item is redeemed.
A student will not be permitted to satisfy registration fees by check if ANY previous
check in payment of registration (enrollment) fees has been returned unpaid. Any check
or credit card draft presented to the University in payment of enrollment fees that
is subsequently dishonored by the bank on which it is drawn will be assessed the Late
Payment Fee of $100.00. Students on a "NO CHECKS" status must be prepared to satisfy
registration fees with cash, cashier's check, or by authorized credit card draft.
Indebtedness to the University: Policy of the Tennessee Board of Regents prohibits the enrollment of any person who
owes the University any amount of money. All outstanding financial obligations to
the University must be satisfied before a student will be allowed to register for
courses. Tennessee law also prohibits the release of grades, transcripts, or diplomas
of any person who has outstanding financial obligations to the University.
