Placement Tests: As part of the orientation process, you may be required to take college placement tests to help determine the most appropriate college courses for you at this time. Contact the Testing Center for information and instructions.
Current Course Enrollment: If you will be transferring to UAB and are currently enrolled in classes at another institution, you will need to have a current transcript sent once those courses are completed. You should make your advisor aware that you have not yet received credit for these courses so that they can be used to select courses to meet your remaining requirements.
Meeting Your Advisor: Although your advisors will be present at orientation, time will be limited. Therefore you are strongly encouraged to schedule an individual advising appointment before your orientation session. This will provide an opportunity for your advisor to learn about your individual interests and academic goals. To schedule an appointment, call 205-934-3850. Before your appointment you should familiarize yourself with the catalog pages that relate to the Psychology Major. When you come for your appointment, bring along a list of the college-level courses that you have already taken or in which you are currently enrolled.
