Prospective students may seek admission to UAB's ESL graduate program at any time of the year. Each term has its own deadline for submitting a degree-seeking application: July 1st for fall, November 1st for spring, and April 1st for summer. If a deadline has passed but you wish to start taking classes, you should first submit a non-degree seeking application and later submit a degree-seeking application. However, if you are able to meet the admission deadline, you should skip the non-degree process and immediately submit a degree-seeking application.

Admission Applications
Step-by-step instructions for submitting the degree-seeking application are provided on the Program Admissions website for the Department of Curriculum and Instruction.
Also provided are instructions for submitting a non-degree seeking application.

If you have any questions about the admission process, please be sure to contact Dr. Susan Spezzini,  Program Director, via email
