Our 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, the Center for Academic
Transition, student life, and campus resources. Orientation information for transfer and adult students will be mailed out soon!
Below are the Orientation Dates for our Adult and Transfer Students:
June 3 - Special Sessions offered for Veteran 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 may contact either the Center
for Academic Transition at (901) 678-2783 or their college academic advisors. 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!
