INTO UAB on the Campus Green

What is INTO UAB?

At UAB, we believe international students bring diverse perspectives, enriching the learning experience for all students and our campus community. International students at UAB can find academic preparation, English language training, admissions support, recruiting and student services provided through a unique partnership called INTO UAB.

Founded in 2016, INTO UAB is an initiative to increase the global diversity of our student body, increase globalization opportunities for domestic students and provide opportunities for faculty to expand international teaching, research and service activities.

INTO UAB provides English language training and pathway programs for international students who may not meet the requirements for direct entry in order to succeed in an undergraduate or graduate program at UAB. Upon successful completion of an INTO UAB Pathway program, students gain full admission into one of UAB’s undergraduate or graduate programs to complete their studies.



The INTO UAB Center is located on the second floor of Mervyn Sterne Library. The Center houses 14 classrooms, a Learning Resource Center, INTO UAB staff and faculty offices and UAB International Student and Scholar Services offices, as well as a multi-faith prayer room, student lounge and several student study areas. The INTO UAB Center exists to be the central location of the UAB Global Community.
