What's After Graduation?

Unique programs and real-world experience gained through internships and hands-on learning projects arm our graduates with skills to succeed in a tough economy.   See where some of our May graduates are heading-



Non-Degree Seeking Admission

The non-degree category serves students who do not wish to pursue a graduate degree at UAB, as well as those who wish to begin graduate study before being admitted to a degree program. Non-degree seeking admission is available for those that meet all admission requirements or already hold a Masters degree. Students with an undergraduate cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher may apply for non-degree seeking admission with approval of the MBA Program Coordinator.  Non-degree seeking students can take up to 12 hours of coursework, and must be cleared through the Graduate School of Management to register. Degree seeking students have priority to courses.

Because of U.S. immigration requirements, international applicants (i.e., those who are neither U.S. citizens nor permanent residents) cannot normally be considered for the non-degree seeking category unless already residing in the United States. Immigration laws should be consulted to determine eligibility of students.

Admission of a Student Previously Dismissed

When any individual applies to a graduate program, a major part of the admissions decision involves an estimate, based on the applicant's academic history, of whether the applicant can perform satisfactorily at the graduate level. To be re-admitted, applicants who have previously been dismissed from the Graduate School must present convincing evidence to the faculty and the Graduate School dean that a substantial improvement has occurred so that it is probable that the applicant can now perform at the required level in graduate work.

After a student has been dismissed from the UAB Graduate School, no new application for admission (either as a degree-seeking student or as a nondegree student) will be considered until at least two regular terms have passed.


The records of students who have not registered for courses for one year or more, will be removed from the UAB computerized registration system. Such students must apply for re-admission before they may register again. Degree-seeking students who (1) have been absent one year but have registered for and passed at least one course at UAB within the last five years and (2) have not attended any other university or college in the interim and (3) wish to return to the graduate program to which they were earlier admitted may complete the Application for Re-admission to a Graduate Degree Program and pay the required processing fee. These re-admitted students must meet the degree requirements operative at the time of re-admission. Students who wish to return to the nondegree category after an absence of one or more years must submit a new Nondegree Application Form along with the required processing fee.

Foundations of Quantitative Analysis

Admission to the UAB MBA Program requires that students have completed the equivalent of a pre-calculus course with a grade of "C" or better within the past five years.  If an applicant does not meet this requirement, they may be admitted with the contingency of satisfying the requirement during their first term of enrollment. We offer several options for satisfying this requirement.

Option one: Complete MA 105 "Pre-calculus Algebra" at UAB with a grade of "C" or better or complete a comparable course at another college or university and complete the course with at least a "C" grade.  A placement test or other prerequisites may be required for admission to MA 105.  You can call 934-2154 or visit the UAB Department of Mathematics ( for more information about taking MA 105 at UAB.

Option two
: Successfully complete two pre-calculus proficiency exams.  These exams can be taken at no cost during normal business hours in the MBA office or online.

Option three
: Students needing assistance in preparing for the tests can enroll in the Graduate School of Management's Foundations of Quantitative Analysis course and complete the proficiency exams as a part of that course.

  •  The Graduate School of Management's Foundations of Quantitative Analysis course will be offered through the UAB Graduate School of Management and is taught Pass/Fail. Students will attend class each evening reviewing basic algebra and pre-calculus that will be useful in business applications. The MBA faculty has worked with the instructor to design the class with you in mind. The course is offered each semester. Class meets over two consecutive weekends, on Friday and Sunday evenings from 5:45pm-9:30pm. The tests are available on-line or you can schedule an appointment to take them during our office hours.  The fee for this course is $260 and is payable only to the UAB Graduate School of Management by check or credit card.
