The University of Memphis provides a wonderful opportunity for me to expand my knowledge in a variety of mechanical engineering fields. It's exciting to be able to utilize mechanical engineering knowledge to help prevent and predict human growth plate injuries. With the academic scholarship I received, I can focus on my study and research. I truly appreciate everything the U of M has provided me.

Since I have already finished all the course credits required by the program, I'll fully focus on my research next semester. After graduation, I'll be proud to give back to the university that has given me so much.

What to Expect - Graduate 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 a graduate applicant some of the most common documentation requests include: all previous college transcripts, and GRE/MAT/GMAT test scores. Only documentation received directly from an issuing school, agency, or institution will be accepted as official – copies and hand delivered documents are not accepted.

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.

After receiving and reviewing all requested documentation, an admissions analyst will compile and forward your file to the academic department of the declared major for review and decision. After the department has determined your admissibility, the decision will be communicated to the Office of Admissions.  You will receive notification directly from the Office of Admissions.
