More Information About the Application Process

Non-Degree-Seeking Admission

If you are interested in enrolling in graduate-level courses without earning a degree, you may apply as a non-degree-seeking student. Under this status, you may take up to 12 credit hours. All non-degree applications must be approved by the academic department, and taking non-degree coursework will not make you admissible to the degree program if you do not meet the minimum admission requirements. Non-degree-seeking students are not eligible for federal financial aid.

Readmission (Previous UA Students)

If you have previously attended The University of Alabama, you must apply for readmission. Review the steps from the Graduate Catalog (scroll down to the Readmission section for details).

Financial Aid and Scholarship Information

To review financial aid information, please visit the Financial Aid section of our website.

Scholarships are also available to distance students. You may apply for some scholarships available through the University as well as scholarships reserved only for distance learning students.
