Freshman Admissions (U.S. Residents)

Looking for the real thing when it comes to college?

If you're looking for a top-notch science education in classroom, lab, and clinic, you should definitely look at UAB. And if you're not the least bit interested in science and prefer to explore the human condition, you also should look at UAB. If you want to step off campus into culture, entertainment, shopping, and some pretty great coffee, UAB. If you want to stay on campus and find those things anyway, UAB. If you're looking for a solemn, tweed-jacket-wearing, glaring-at-you-over-his-glasses professor like you see in the movies, maybe elsewhere. But if you're looking for the education and fun and life-changing experiences and coffee—we're looking for you.
