What is the mailing address for the Office of Admissions?
University of Memphis
Office of Admissions
101 Wilder Tower
Memphis, TN 38152-3520

I have copies of documents that have been requested by the Office of Admissions.  Can I submit these copies to continue my admission process?
The Office of Admissions requires official documentation for application processing.  Documents are considered official only if sent directly from the issuing institution.  College entrance examination scores (SAT/ACT) will be considered official if they appear on an official high school transcript.  Personal copies of requested documentation cannot be accepted.  Please see Admission Requirements for more information

Must I readmit if I sat out a semester?
Students who have sat out one regular semester (fall or spring) must be readmitted to the University. 

How can I find out which courses, taken at my former college, may transfer?
Please refer to the online transfer equivalency tables to determine which courses may transfer.  If you do not find your institution listed you may wish to contact the Office of Admissions at (901) 678-2111 for more information.

I received a letter requiring me to show that I have registered for Selective Service; however, I am not eligible yet.  What should I do?
You may still be admitted without this information, however, when you become eligible and complete your registration for Selective Service, please notify our office.

How long will it take for my admission application to be processed?
Once you apply online, please allow 2-3 business days for your application to be processed.  After we receive all of the required supporting documents, an admission decision will be made and you will be notified by mail and e-mail.

What are the driving directions to the University of Memphis and location of the Office of Admissions?
Please see the Visit the Campus page for information on directions, campus map, parking, and arranging a tour.  The Office of Admissions is located in Room 101 of Wilder Tower.  Wilder Tower is located near the intersection of Patterson and Walker Streets. 

How soon will I know if I’ve been accepted to the University of Memphis?
Only after all outstanding items are received can an admissions decision be made. The University of Memphis requires official documents to make an admissions decision. Please monitor your e-mail (or regular mail) for notification of what outstanding items are needed to continue processing your application. Decisions regarding graduate programs may take a little longer than undergraduate due to the cooperative efforts between the academic department and the Office of Admissions.

When I check my application status online, I see that I have incomplete items. What does this mean and how can I find out what items are incomplete?
When you submitted your application, several of the responses automatically triggered additional requests. For example, if you are male between 18-26, you will be asked to verify registration with Selective Service and/or if you indicated that you’ve earned college credit from another accredited institution of higher education, you will be asked to have an official transcript submitted for evaluation, etc…. You will be notified what, if any, items are outstanding after an analyst has reviewed your application – this may take 2-3 business days.

I just realized that I submitted my online application with an error. Is there any way I can correct this error online?
No. Once an online application has been submitted, changes can only be made by an admissions analyst. Please contact the Office of Admissions to request the correction.

I receive correspondence from the Office of Admissions via e-mail and regular mail.  Why don’t you send all correspondence via e-mail?
The Office of Admissions has a complex communication system that utilizes both e-mail (personal and official UofM) and regular mail. E-mail is the preferred method for corresponding with applicants. If you provided an e-mail address on the application for admission, we will communicate with you at that address.  If you are accepted, instructions for setting up your UofM e-mail account will be provided with your official acceptance letter (e-mail). It is important that you set up your UofM e-mail account. From this point forward, all correspondence will be sent to your official UofM e-mail account.
