Who is an Adult Student?

An adult student is a student who is currently over the age of 25 or a student who will reach the age of 25 by graduation.

Why "Adult Students?"

We know that students in this category experience different challenges, opportunities, and successes than students aged 18-24. This isn't a bad thing! That is why we have specific student organizations, scholarship opportunities, and campus and community resources targeted at adult students.

Whether you are looking for community with other likeminded adult students, support for a challenge you are experiencing while at UofM, or just hoping to find out more about what is offered on campus, we have you covered! Email us at any time at adultstudents@memphis.edu with questions, or call the Dean of Students Office at (901) 678-2187 for more information.
