University of Memphis Board of Trustees Announces No In-State Tuition Increase for 2022-23 

June 1, 2022 — For the third time in five years, the University of Memphis will have no tuition increase for all in-state students for the 2022-23 academic year. The University will implement a nominal 1-2.16% increase for nonresident and international students. Both tuition proposals were announced at the UofM Board of Trustees meeting on Wednesday.  

This year, based on Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee and the general assembly’s additional $90 million allocation into the funding formula for higher education, the Tennessee Higher Education Commission required a 0% undergraduate in-state tuition increase for all public institutions in the state. The requirement aligns with the UofM’s continued efforts and initiatives to expand access and affordability.  

The UofM’s 1.5% average in-state tuition increase over the past eight years is the lowest in Tennessee. The University also announced no proposed mandatory fee increase at this time. 

In other news from the meetings on Wednesday, Dr. Abby Parrill-Baker was appointed interim provost. Parrill-Baker came to the UofM in 1988 as an instructor and has served in many capacities, most recently holding the position of dean in the College of Arts & Sciences. 

“Abby has served the University very well over several years, and I appreciate her taking on this role,” said UofM President Bill Hardgrave. 

The Board approved Marissa J. Clark as its student trustee for the upcoming year.
