Nursing with a Minor in Spanish

When I transferred to the University of Memphis, I really thought I would be the type of student who went to school and just went home, but my experience here so far has been the total opposite. I love that Memphis has all the opportunities of a big school but the feeling of community that comes with going to a small school.

What to Expect - Application Review

Following the initial review of your application by an admissions analyst, you will be notified by the Office of Admissions of any additional documentation that may be needed in order to continue processing your application. You will receive this notification in your personal e-mail account (if provided on the application) or by standard mail. As an undergraduate applicant some of the most common documentation requests include, a final high school transcript, ACT/SAT test scores, college transcripts (transfer applicants) and evidence of Selective Service registration (male applicants). Only documentation received directly from an issuing school, agency, or institution will be accepted as official – copies and hand delivered documents are not accepted.

After receiving and reviewing your final high school transcript any deficiencies in your high school curriculum will be noted and, upon acceptance, you will be referred to speak to a counselor in the Center for Academic Retention and Enrichment Services in order to plan out how the deficiencies will be removed. Courses taken to remove deficiencies must be completed during your first few semesters of enrollment.

Also, following review of your transcript, your scholarship eligibility will be determined by the Scholarship Office. If eligible for a scholarship, you will receive notification directly from the Scholarship Office.

The Office of Admissions will continue to notify you of outstanding documents throughout the application process. However, if there is a long period of absent respondent communication (60 days), your file will be held in an inactive status until we hear from you again.
