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.
