The Professional Development Program offers courses and workshops designed to improve the academic and professional communication skills of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows and to help prepare them for independent careers.
Postdocs, Faculty, and Staff
Postdoctoral fellows should contact the Office of Postdoctoral Education (http://www.postdocs.uab.edu/; 975-7020) for registration procedures. Nonnative English speakers may choose to complete the oral and written language assessments (as described above) before registering for the Academic English program offerings.
For UAB faculty or staff to receive Educational Assistance reimbursement for tuition, they must first apply to the Graduate School as a nondegree-seeking student and then register for the course or workshop through normal registration procedures. A nondegree application is valid for three semesters (1 year) following the date of application. The deadlines listed in the UAB Class Schedule apply. Link to Nondegree application
