Explanation of Fees

The fee information in this section is intended to cover the situations most students will encounter. Detailed information concerning other miscellaneous student fees may be found in the Undergraduate and/or Graduate Bulletins of the University.

The listing of any fee or incidental charge in this publication does not constitute a contract between the University and the student. As a condition of registration, each student will pay the fees in effect for the semester for which he or she registers. All questions in regard to fees, fee payment, and refunds should be directed to University & Student Business Services, 115 Wilder Tower or by calling University & Student Business Services at bursar2@memphis.edu or 901.678.2712.

Fees are subject to change without notice. The University will usually collect the amount of fees due at the time of fee satisfaction in accordance with the residency classification and fee rates in effect. After all enrollments are complete, any over-collections will be refunded and students will be billed for any under-collections.

Fees for AUDITING courses are assessed on the same basis as fees for credit courses. Courses offered between terms, for a concentrated period during a term, or at specific locations may be subject to fees on a per-hour basis only.
