Eligibility Verification for Entitlements Act
Your University of Memphis e-mail account and password are required to log-in.
Tennessee law requires ALL NEW STUDENTS interested in enrolling at a college or university in Tennessee to provide proof of their legal presence before state benefits will be provided. To accommodate this new law, the University of Memphis has begun taking this information shortly after a student is granted admission for your convenience. This law can be satisfied by submitting one of the following:
- The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) - preferred;
- A valid state issued driver’s license or photo identification license (except for Utah and New Mexico);
- An official birth certificate issued by a US state, jurisdiction or territory, except for Puerto Rican birth certificates issued before July 1, 2010;
- A US government-issued certified birth certificate;
- A valid, unexpired US passport;
- A US certificate of birth abroad (DS-1350 or FS-545);
- A report of birth abroad of a citizen of the US (FS-240);
- A certificate of citizenship (N560 or N561);
- A certificate of naturalization (N550, N570, or N578); or
- A US citizen identification card (I-197, I-179).
Failure to provide the information requested will limit the UofM’s ability to award state and/or federal financial aid, and will impact how your tuition and fees will be assessed. This restriction does not impact privately funded scholarships.
