ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS FOR FRESHMAN STUDENTS

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.

In terms of educational preparation, the college preparatory curriculum minimum unit requirements for regular admissions are:

  • 4 units of English
  • 4 units of social sciences, including world history or a comparable course
  • 3 units of mathematics (must include algebra I, algebra II, and one unit of either geometry, trigonometry, or calculus)
  • 3 units of natural sciences, including two courses with lab components
  • 1 unit of foreign language
  • 5 additional units of academic courses (We recommend courses in fine arts or computer literacy, with additional courses in mathematics, natural sciences, and foreign language.)
