Payment Options

You may remit your payment electronically via TigerXpress.  This option is fee free.  Please note that when you are remitting your payment online ensure that you have your Bank's routing and bank account number.  Use only that information to remit your payment.  Below is an example of where that information is located on the bottom of your personal check:


 **Please do not include the Check Number

You will receive an email stating that your payment request has been received once the process is complete.  Until the payment has been deemed as paid and satisfied, your payment is not considered complete.  If a paper/electronic check or credit card payment used to satisfy enrollment fees is returned for non-payment by your financial institution, you will be assessed a $30 Return Payment Fee, and may be assessed a $200 Late Payment Fee, and your registration may be subject to cancellation.

Make online payments through the TigerXpress Portal. The University accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express card payments. All debit/credit card transactions are assessed a non-refundable processing fee by our third-party payment processor.  The processing fee is 2.95% of the total payment amount with a minimum processing fee of $3.00.

The Installment Payment Plan (IPP) is offered for the Fall and Spring terms only to help satisfy payment requirements by the appropriate fee payment deadline listed in the University & Student Business Services calendar.

A 25% down payment of the tuition & fees and a $50.00 non-refundable enrollment fee is required at the time of enrollment.

After making the initial 25% payment, the remaining 75% will be payable in monthly installments as follows:

Fall Installment Payment Plans (IPP) will open in July with remaining payments due September 1, October 1, and November 1.

Spring Installment Payment Plans (IPP) will open in December with remaining payments due February 1, March 1, and  April 1.

Participants in this plan must apply all discounts, waivers, third party sponsor payments (such as employer and pre-paid tuition programs) and financial aid, including student loans, toward payment of registration fees before a payment plan will be considered. Financial Aid and other credits received after the initial payment will be applied to the remaining balance, and future amounts due will be recalculated. No refunds can be made until all fees are paid in full.

The Tennessee STRONG (Support, Training, and Renewing Opportunity for National Guardsmen) Act established a program to provide eligible members of the TN National Guard tuition funding toward a first bachelor’s or first master’s degree through a tuition reimbursement program. This program is used in conjunction with Federal Tuition Assistance to pursue professional and personal self-development goals.

To qualify for the TN STRONG Act program, you must:

  • Be a currently serving member of the TN National Guard and be serving when the term/classes end.
  • Be in good standing with the TNNG and not flagged at the time of request submission.
  • Have not attained a bachelor's degree and wish to pursue a bachelor's degree.
  • Have not attained a graduate degree and wish to pursue a graduate degree.
  • Attend an eligible TN public or private institution.
  • Use Federal Tuition Assistance (if eligible)
  • Maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA for undergraduate or a 3.0 GPA for graduates for the academic term.


Each semester that you intend to use TN STRONG benefits you will need to upload a copy of your concise student schedule and a completed deferral into the online form submission portal before the fee payment deadline of the semester.

*You should upload your schedule and completed deferral as soon as you have your schedule finalized to allow time for processing.

Once your required paperwork has been received, a completed Section IV-Enrollment Certification form will be emailed to your UofM email address within 5-7 business days.

*Be sure that you are using the newest version of the application packet, or it could be rejected by TN STRONG. You will need to get the application from the website each semester in the event that it has been updated.

You will need to complete the rest of the application packet and have your Commander sign Section III on page 1 of the application.

NOTE: only DOD CAC or handwritten signatures are acceptable.  All other digital signatures will be rejected.

Once you have the entire application packet completed, you will then email the 5-page application to TN STRONG for review.

Be sure to copy bursar_ar@memphis.edu when you email your application to TN STRONG. 

Your deferral will then be memoed to your student account as “estimated financial aid” if you meet the following requirements:

  • It can be determined that you have completed the most up to date application and received the appropriate signatures required by TN STRONG and that all signatures are in the appropriate format.
  • Your GPA for the previous semester meets the TN STRONG requirement for reimbursement (2.0 for UG and 3.0 for GR).
  • You have emailed your current application to TN STRONG in a timely manner.
  • For Army National Guard students: Your approved FTA authorization for the semester has been uploaded to the online form submission portal.


Once the deferral has been memoed to your student account you will need to either pay any remaining balance in full or enroll in the Installment Payment Plan through your TigerXpress (the IPP is not available during the summer semester). The deferral will only cover your tuition and tuition related fees.

Your TN STRONG application is not considered a completed application packet until your grades, an itemized bill and a Section VII-Billing Summary form have been received by TN STRONG at the end of the semester. USBS will submit all required information to TN STRONG at the end of each semester.
