If you started your bachelor's degree at The University of Alabama but didn't complete it, we'd like to welcome you back to Bama. The College of Continuing Studies at UA is committed to providing education that fits your life. Initiatives like Back to Bama can help you find your place at UA, even if you're juggling a family, career and other responsibilities and even if you're not on campus.

Also, if you left UA with less than good grades, you may be eligible for Academic Second Opportunity (ASO). ASO is an academic relief option that allows former students to return to UA with a second chance at doing well academically.

To apply for the Back to Bama grant, you must first apply for readmission to The University of Alabama. Once you have been readmitted to the university, you can then apply for the Bama to Bama Tuition grant.
