If you're taking a course for your own personal interest or benefit, then this step
is not a great consideration for you. However, if you're taking a course to apply

register until April 15, 2015.
Your Transcript from Your Home Institution
As a visiting student, you aren't required to send us a copy of your transcript when
you apply. However, any course you want to take here may require proof of your having
met course prerequisites at your home university. For this reason, we strongly suggest
that you send a copy of your transcript, even unofficial, to our Admissions Office when you apply.
Register for classes through the myMemphis portal. Refer to this Registration Quick Guide once you have been admitted and have established your portal Password (instructions
will be mailed to you by Admissions).
Fees and Fee Payment
Visit the Bursar's website for information on fees, payment deadlines, and methods of payment.
Transferring Credit to Your Home Institution
To transfer your credit home, request an official U of M transcript. (You do not have to wait until the end of Summer to do this: submit your request
early and indicate that you want the transcript sent once Summer grades are official.)
