Contact Graduate Admissions at (901) 678-3685 or graduateadmissions@memphis.edu.

Prospective students should check with the coordinator of the program to which they are applying for specific deadlines and requirements. Applicants should allow a reasonable amount of time for necessary documents to be processed by the degree program and the Graduate School (approximately four to six weeks). International applicants should allow at least four months for the application process. Applicants are urged to apply early to ensure consideration. Contact the ICL department about any requirements and deadlines.

If you have previously attended The University of Memphis Graduate School and have not been enrolled for a semester, excluding summer, you must apply for readmission. Readmission may subject the student to all of the rules, prerequisites, and degree requirements listed in the current Graduate Catalog. Submission of an application for readmission does not ensure acceptance. Readmission may be denied or conditions may be imposed on the student. Contact the Graduate Office of Admissions and follow the specified procedures.
