UAB Veterans Services

Thank you for your service to our country.

The staff of Veterans Services at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) is grateful to be able to serve students who have served in the United States Armed Forces and who are now attending college using one or more of the Educational Benefits packages. We are also here to assist the dependents and/or spouses of soldiers. You have protected our freedom, and we are here to help you get a better education.

Paying for College

College may look like an expensive undertaking.

OK, college is an expensive undertaking. But UAB can give you a world-class education and an unforgettable college experience at a fraction of the price. We’ve been named one of America’s “Best College Values” by the Princeton Review, because that’s what we are: A great college value. One of the best, actually. In America. And on top of that, UAB hands out money—about $100 million in scholarships and financial aid every year. Check out all of your options to make an already-affordable UAB education that much more accessible.
