To be eligible for an academic scholarship at UAB, you must submit your admission application and all required documentation by May 1 of your senior year in high school. Entering freshmen who have their admission documents postmarked by that date are automatically considered for ACT & GPA-based scholarships. Your December test scores from your senior year will be the last scores considered for scholarship purposes. The examined GPA will be the cumulative GPA at the time of admission. All scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to qualified students. Scholarships from specific schools and departments may require additional applications, and their deadlines may be earlier than May 1.
