We welcome applications from students who have earned the equivalent of a bachelor's degree in Mathematics, the Sciences, or Engineering from an accredited academic institution, and who have at least a B average in undergraduate work. An important role in our assessment of the qualifications of a student is played by the letters of evaluation as well as by a sufficiently high score in the quantitative part of the GRE General Test, indicating preparedness for graduate studies in mathematics.

To apply for admission you have to provide academic records, three letters of recommendation, and scores of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), General Test. There are more requirements for international students. UAB charges an application fee, for details please see the admissions page of the Graduate School. The Graduate School requires that all applications are submitted online here via the TargetX application portal, required recommendation letters must also be submitted using this application portal.  If you have any general questions about the online application process, you can contact the Graduate School at the address
