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 high-school grade point average, high-school course schedule, and performance on the ACT and/or SAT should students wish to submit a score. For more information about ACT/SAT scores and The University’s admissions process visit, https://gobama.ua.edu/steps/freshman-req/.
