Whether you'd like to attend graduate school full-time or if you need a more flexible program, you've come to the right place. Explore our Graduate School or visit online degree opportunities at UofM Global All Graduate Online Degree Programs. Graduate students are admitted to the University of Memphis through a cooperative effort of the Office of Admissions, the Graduate School, and the departments, colleges, and schools of the University. In many degree programs, the number of applications received from individuals qualified for graduate study regularly exceeds the number of applicants who can be accommodated. In such cases, only the most highly qualified are offered admission. The number of spaces available in various departments is limited according to the availability of faculty, special resources, and funds for students requiring financial assistance. 

Prospective students can apply using our online application system. Refer to program descriptions in the Graduate Catalog for more information on requirements. There are also additional admission requirements for international students

A non-refundable application and processing fee of thirty-five dollars U.S. (U.S. $35.00) is required of every domestic applicant, $60.00 for international applicants.

Advisors for graduate students are typically department based. Often, departments will assign advisors to students upon admission based on areas of interest. After students have matriculated and enrolled in coursework under various faculty members, students may select a different advisor. To inquire about your academic advisor, please contact the office of the graduate coordinator or department chair for your program.
