The Student Financial Aid Office administers federal, state, and institutional aid programs to qualified students. To receive financial aid, qualified students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year. U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents and qualifying non-citizens are eligible for federal financial aid.
The University of Memphis' commitment has always been, and continues to be, one of delivering high-quality educational programs to all of our students at the lowest possible cost. Toward this end, the UofM recently approved and implemented the Access Memphis initiative. The UofM offers:
- Guaranteed tuition plan with locked-in rates for eight consecutive semesters
- Credit hours above 12 hours for undergraduate Tennessee residents and 10 hours for graduate Tennessee residents incur no additional charge
- Traditional and online courses offered for on campus are offered at the same per credit hour price.
- The Memphis Promise is a last-dollar scholarship which fills the gap between a student’s financial aid (Federal Pell Grant, Tennessee State Grants/Scholarships, institutional aid) and the cost of tuition.
