Currently we have a student body of nearly 22,000 and offer 17 bachelor’s degrees in more than 250 areas of study as well as graduate programs in a number of disciplines. We are proud to have the largest Honors program in the State of Tennessee, as well as being No. 1 in online learning statewide.


YES! Over 1/3 of the student population at the University of Memphis enters with transfer credit! According to the National Student Clearinghouse, recipients of bachelor’s degrees earn an average of $21,000 more per year than high school graduates. The fastest growing jobs in America require college degrees, and college graduates have lower unemployment rates. The University of Memphis ranks in the Top 10 for Student Internship Placement according to U.S. News & World Report, and we have the resources and people in place to help you get the job experience you need to move your resume to the top of the stack.

Classes that you have previously taken at other colleges or universities will be evaluated to determine course credit at the UofM. You can access our equivalency tables online for a quick look at the credit you are likely to receive.

You will receive course credit for all previous coursework that is eligible for transfer to the University of Memphis, and the UofM will recalculate your GPA for the purpose of admission based only on the classes eligible to transfer to the UofM. Therefore, our GPA calculation may be different than the calculation given at your most recent institution depending on the courses you have taken.

Your award types and amounts will vary between institutions depending on availability and cost factors. If you are transferring in the middle of the academic year, you will need to log into your FAFSA account and move the UofM to the top of your list. Then you can work with the Office of Financial Aid to see what types of aid you will qualify for at the UofM.
