Our Summer 2015 sessions for adult and transfer students are specifically designed
for new freshmen 23 years of age and older and all new transfer students. You will
learn about the General Education program, Adult & Commuter Student Services, student
life, and campus resources. Orientation information for transfer and adult students will be mailed in late Spring
Below are the Orientation Dates for our Adult and Transfer Students:
New transfer and adult students may schedule appointments with their academic advisors
as soon as they are admitted to the University of Memphis, and appointments should
take place prior to attending Orientation. Academic advising is required before registering
for courses each semester. After you have met with your advisor, you will be cleared
to register on the MyMemphis portal.
For academic advising appointments, transfer students should contact their academic
advisor directly. New adult freshmen students may contact the Academic Counseling
Center at (901) 678-2062.
Below is an abbreviated outline of the schedule for your one-day orientation session.
You will receive a more detailed schedule when you arrive at Orientation. Orientation
is a continuous program with all activities scheduled in a necessary sequence. The
orientation schedule requires extensive walking so please wear comfortable shoes and
bring an umbrella!
