For information on cost of attendance, please visit the financial aid web site or click here.

Living On-Campus

We encourage students to live on campus their first year of college as it gives them the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the college experience and to have the opportunity to get fully involved on campus.  For more information on the residence options available to students, please visit the Residence Life web site

Living Off-Campus

For students who live off campus, there are a variety of options within walking distance or a short drive from the University.  Adult and Commuter Student Services manage a site dedicated to off-campus housing

Please review our Parents of Commuter Students page as well.

Student and Parent Orientation

Once your student is admitted to the University, we encourage you and your student to attend orientation.  Two day sessions are held throughout the summer and students and parents learn valuable information about the University from the sessions.  For more information and a full list of dates, please click here

Frosh Camp

Held during the summer, Frosh Camp is an opportunity to help students to prepare for their transition to college.  It is also a wonderful introduction to the University and to being a Tiger!  For more information, please click here. Make sure to sign up early, as space is limited and the sessions fill quickly. 

ALEKS Math Placement Test

To better ensure student success, the University of Memphis has adopted a mandatory placement assessment, known as ALEKS. Because students are admitted with a wide variety of strengths and backgrounds in mathematics, it is reasonable to expect that there will be various levels of readiness among students.

ALEKS is a powerful artificial intelligence based mechanism to assess math proficiency and skill level. It is important for student success in mathematics that they enroll in a course for which they have the necessary preparation and which leads to the math courses required for their particular major.
