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 the Bursar's Office, 115 Wilder Tower or by calling the Bursar's Office at (901) 678-2712 or email.

After all enrollments are complete, any over-collections will be refunded and students will be billed for any under-collections.
