students can check out virtual or in-person visit options at https://gobama.ua.edu/visits/ and can schedule an appointment with me at https://adm.ua.edu/portal/meet-your-recruiter.  

SPECIAL EDITION

Due to limitations on ACT and SAT testing opportunities throughout the U.S., The University of Alabama will not require test scores from students applying for Spring, Summer or Fall 2021 admission.

Students applying without ACT or SAT scores will be evaluated by their overall GPA, core academic GPA and the strength of the curriculum. Further details can be found at gobama.ua.edu/apply.

UA encourages students to submit available ACT and/or SAT scores to provide additional support to their application. Submission of scores will not be an advantage or disadvantage to an applicant.

Students admitted without test scores are strongly encouraged to submit a scholarship application by January 15, 2021, to be considered for competitive and merit awards. More information can be found at scholarships.ua.edu/freshman.

For additional information, please contact your regional recruiter.

UPDATED ADMISSION POLICIES/REQUIREMENTS

The University of Alabama continues to review and evaluate applications on an individual basis for the 2021-2022 academic year. Decisions about the potential for students' academic success at UA are based on their high school GPA, high school course schedule and performance on the ACT and/or SAT.

 

Due to the uncertainty around testing availability, we realize some students may not have taken a test by the time they wish to apply and will need to test later in the fall or early spring. Students may submit their application without a test score to be considered for conditional admission. Conditionally admitted students must submit a test score by May 1, 2021.

APPLICATION PROCESS

  1. Complete the online application at gobama.ua.edu/apply.
    1. Pay $40 fee upon submission OR submit NACAC fee waiver.
    2. UA does not require a letter of recommendation or essay.
  2. Request ACT or SAT score(s) be sent to UA. Our ACT code is 0052 and our SAT code is 1830.
  3. Request official high school transcript be sent to UA.Transcripts can be sent via mail (Box 870109, Tuscaloosa, AL, 35487), email to hstranscripts@ua.edu or electronically through Parchment, National Student Clearinghouse, SCOIR, Overgrad, Scribbbles and Scrip-Safe.

UA RESPONSE TO COVID-19

The UA system has been working since late last spring to develop protocols that would ensure a safe return to campus this fall. Policies and practices were instituted including mandatory testing for all students before coming back to campus, ongoing health checks as well as requiring masks on campus for all students, faculty, staff and visitors.

DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION

The Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) provides leadership on campus to build upon our core principles of inclusiveness in learning environments, programs and strategic partnerships. DEI has developed a Multicultural Resource Guide to assist prospective students in learning more about UA and is sponsoring monthly events for the University and Tuscaloosa communities.
