Congratulations on your admission to the University of Alabama at Birmingham! You’re just a few steps away from becoming a Blazer. Complete this checklist, created especially for non-degree-seeking students (including dual- and concurrent-enrollment students), 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 make a reservation for orientation, register for classes, and do many other important things. Use your student number (found in your admission decision email) to set up your BlazerID and password. But choose carefully: Your BlazerID is permanent and will be part of your email address—and will stay that way even if you become a UAB employee one day.

The BlazerID and password take one hour to activate once you create them.

Step 2. Explore BlazerNET

BlazerNET is the official portal to the UAB community and the most reliable source of information for UAB students. It’s convenient, secure, and provides easy access to your UAB email, class schedule, important announcements and more. Use your BlazerID and password to login.

Step 3. 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 4. Take Math Placement Assessment

You must take this assessment if you wish to take a math course but have not already completed a college-level math course (excluding remedial math and finite math) with a grade of C or better. Register by clicking “Math Placement Assessment” on BlazerNET.

Step 5. Prepare for Orientation (Dual/concurrent students only)

Dual/concurrent students must complete an online orientation course. You’ll get access to the course via email, and you may register for classes once you complete the course.

Step 6. 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 7. 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 8. Obtain Your Parking Pass

On-campus students only: Create an account at the link below to get your parking pass. If you’re a new student, allow two business days after registration before purchasing your permit. The parking pass is not required for online students.
