We are aware there is confusion and concern over the rapidly evolving situation concerning the Executive Order that has suspended entry into the United States for non-US citizens from a number of countries. More information on this Executive Order as it relates to higher education, including the affected countries, can be found here.

UAB values our international students, faculty and staff. Our diversity forms the fabric of the rich and vibrant community that transforms us into responsible and engaged global citizens. For those faculty, staff, and students who might be affected by this Executive Order, we would advise that you defer any travel outside of the U.S. for the time being except in a family emergency. 

If you have been affected by this Executive Order or if you have any concerns about travel plans for yourself, your family, students or employees, please contact Catherine Crowe, director of the Office of International Student and Scholar Services, at (205) 934-1252, or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
