Recruit a StudentThis fall, an outstanding class of new freshmen will begin their academic experience on our campus! It is an exciting time to be at UAB and we are happy to have these new students part of our Blazer family. 

Do you have a friend or family member who is getting ready to start college? It's never too early to refer a prospective student, so we invite you to help us introduce these students to our University! CLICK HERE to contact the Office of Undergraduate Admission so that we can be in touch!

Why UAB?

Because from the very beginning, we've been a place for dreamers and doers, artists and scientists, idealists and realists. This is a university without walls, where no one is worried about fitting in — just standing out. UAB is your launching pad for a 21st century career, with opportunities you won’t find anywhere else. Want to be in a place where something is always going on, while still experiencing a tight campus community? There’s no need to settle for A or B when you can have both at UAB.

Campus Tours

There’s a lot you can learn about UAB from our website, but experiencing UAB in person will give you so much more. You need to come over and see how great we are firsthand. Tour campus. Tour the city. Meet a few professors, talk with current students, have a meal at the Commons on the Green, and explore the community you’ll live in when you’re a Blazer.

UAB walking campus tours are offered Monday through Friday at 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. and select Saturdays at 9:30 a.m.. Transfer tours are offered select Fridays at 2:30 p.m., and Dragon Wagon Bus tours of the city of Birmingham are twice daily at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Please note that no campus tours are offered during national and university holidays.

The UAB Campus Tour Center is located on the second floor of the Hill Student Center at 1400 University Boulevard. Make your reservation today, and we’ll look forward to seeing you on campus soon!

 Academics

When it comes down to it, you’re coming to college for an education.

Oh, there’s no denying that the culture and athletics and student life are great (and very important), but, in the end, you’re looking for a degree and a plan for the future. Conveniently, UAB happens to have all of those things – except for the plan – but we can help you build that yourself. We offer more than 115 areas of study, including a few that you can’t find anywhere else in the state, or even the region. And you definitely can’t find our top-notch, field-tested, nationally renowned, actually-really-nice-in-person faculty anywhere else in the state. Mostly because, well, they’re here.
