U of M Announces Application Fee Waiver Program

For release: January 15, 2014
For press information, contact Gabrielle Maxey, 901/678-2843

The University of Memphis announced today that it is waiving its application fee to increase access to education for all interested high school students.

“We want to assist students in achieving their educational goals, so the University is implementing a first-time freshman application fee waiver for those who find the application fee to be a financial hardship,” said Betty Huff, vice provost of Enrollment Services.

Students may obtain an application fee waiver by submitting one of the following documents:

  • National Association for College Admissions Counseling (NACAC) Application Fee Waiver Request Form (available on the NACAC homepage,) or
  • ACT/SAT Fee Waiver, or
  • Evidence of participation in the Federal Free or Reduced Lunch Program, or
  • Evidence of status as a ward of the state or placement into foster care.

The current $25 application fee will still be required of students who do not satisfy the criteria for the waiver. 

Questions regarding the application fee waiver should be directed to 901.678.2169 or
