Congratulations on your admission to the University of Alabama at Birmingham!

Transcript Request

Dual and Concurrent Enrollment students may request one official UAB transcript to be sent to their high school for free. All other students may request a transcript online.

You’re just a few steps away from becoming a Blazer. Complete this checklist, created especially for non-degree-seeking to help prepare you for your first day.

Not a non-degree seeking student? Go here.

Step 1. Activate your BlazerID

You’ll need a BlazerID to register for classes, view your schedule, pay tuition, and to do many other important things. Use your student number (found in your admission decision email) to activate your BlazerID and create a password.

The BlazerID and password take one hour to activate.

Step 2. Submit Your Immunizations

You’re required to show proof of these immunizations:

  • MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella)
  • Tdap (tetanus and diphtheria)
  • meningococcal, and
  • varicella.

You must also be screened for tuberculosis.

Before you get any new vaccinations, log in to the UAB Patient Portal and check your immunization requirements. Immunization records for Alabama residents that are already on file with the state registry are added automatically. If you’re an Alabama resident with questions about immunizations, contact a medical clearance associate through the Patient Portal.

Step 3. Take Course Placement Assessments

If you have not earned college-level math or English credit above the remedial level, you are required to take an assessment to determine course placement. Some exceptions apply.

Step 4. Register for Classes

Log in to BlazerNET using your BlazerID and password, and then click “Registration.” You may register for classes once degree seeking students have had an opportunity to register. Your registration time falls within the three-week period prior to the first day of class.

Register for classes

Step 5. Submit Your ONE Card Photo (Optional)

The ONE Card is your official UAB ID–and your free pass to UAB athletic events, recreational activities, and libraries. Upload your own photo. (Photos must meet certain criteria and must be approved by UAB staff.) You must bring a government-issued photo ID to pick up your ONE Card.

Submit Your Photo

Step 6. Obtain Your Parking Pass
