About: The University of Alabama is a major, comprehensive, student-centered research university founded in 1831 as Alabama’s first public college. Dedicated to excellence in teaching, research and service, we provide a creative, nurturing campus environment where our students can become the best individuals possible … learn from the best and brightest faculty … and make a positive difference in the community, the state and the world.
Admission Info: The University of Alabama employs a competitive admission process that includes reviewing and evaluating each application on an individual basis for an applicant's abilities as a student and a scholar. Decisions about the potential for your academic success at UA are based on your performance on the ACT and/or SAT, your high-school grade point average, and your high-school course schedule. (For example: a student with a 21 ACT or 1000 SAT along with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 should be successful at the University.) Additionally, ACT and/or SAT writing scores are required for incoming freshmen. Please visit http://gobama.ua.edu/steps/freshman.html for more information.
Scholarship/Financial Aid: Academic scholarships are merit-based, requiring that students earn certain grade point averages and/or scores on the PSAT, SAT, or ACT to qualify. Here is a sampling of what UA and other sources have to offer-but remember, it's important to investigate as many options as possible. To select scholarship recipients, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, the National Alumni Association, and The University of Alabama's undergraduate colleges and schools use the scholarship application on myBama for freshman and transfer students and a separate application for currently enrolled students. Student Financial Aid will use this information for non-need based scholarships as well. Entering freshmen, transfer students, and current University undergraduate students who apply will be considered for all scholarships for which they are eligible, with the exception of those offered by Air Force ROTC, Army ROTC, and the College of Continuing Studies.
