FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

April 1, 2014 - The University of Memphis reaffirmed today that it will not recommend or support a tuition increase for 2014-15.

"We remain firm in our position that there will be no tuition increase at the University of Memphis," said Brad Martin, interim president. "The university is a great educational value now, and it will be an even better value next year."

As of today, undergraduate application activity is up over 73 percent for fall 2014 for the Memphis and Lambuth campuses combined, with the university having received almost 12,000 applications. This is a record number of applications. The previous high number of applications received was 7,350.

"Affordability remains a key element of student access and successful degree completion at the University of Memphis," said Martin. "We continue to work on the effective allocation of available resources and improved efficiencies at the university so we can focus on serving more students and improving our graduation rates."

The University of Memphis initially announced last November that it would not raise tuition for the upcoming academic year. More than 21,000 students are currently enrolled at the University of Memphis.
