Back to Bama is an initiative to encourage individuals who left The University of Alabama before they graduated to return and complete their undergraduate degrees. We want you to know that you still belong here and that it is never too late to come back to Bama!
Contact the Bama By Distance Student Services office at 800-467-0227, (205) 348-0089 or email@example.com to speak with a Bama By Distance Student Services team member about finishing your degree.
To be eligible for the Back to Bama grant, you must:
You an enroll as a main campus or distance learning student. Main campus students complete courses on campus in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Through Bama By Distance, you can complete courses online or in other convenient formats, on your schedule from any location. View a complete listing of main campus degree programs and distance degree programs here.
If you have been away from UA for more than 3 years and your GPA was less than a 2.0, you may be eligible for Academic Second Opportunity.
A Bama By Distance Student Services team member can help determine whether Academic Second Opportunity is an option for you.
That's fine. Your discussions with the Bama By Distance Student Services team member will help you identify your best path. Have those discussions before you are readmitted so we can make sure that you get started back in the correct college and degree program.
Students enrolled in a Bama By Distance degree program or admitted as an online, non-degree seeking student pay the same distance learning tuition rate regardless of residency. Please note that the tuition rate does not include any course or test-proctoring fees. If you are in an on-campus degree program or if you plan to finish by taking on-campus courses, the standard campus tuition rates apply.
Financial aid is available to both main campus and Bama By Distance students. To apply for federal financial aid (including possible federal grants and loans), complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online.
