Undergraduate Admission

respiratory_therapyWhen you are accepted to UAB with a major in the School of Health Professions, you become a pre-professional student. Once you complete foundation courses (about two years), you can apply to enter a SHP program of study, where you will begin your major’s curriculum. School advisors who are familiar with clinical disciplines will help you determine which courses satisfy pre-professional requirements. Some SHP programs offer opportunities for early admission. Note: Admission to UAB does not guarantee admission to the professional phase of any SHP program.
