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 online students—to help make your transition smooth and simple.
Not an online student? Go here.
Step 1. Create a BlazerID
A BlazerID is required to access online orientation, register for classes, manage your financial aid, and much more. In order to establish your BlazerID, you will need your student number, which can be found in your acceptance email.
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, financial aid status, any transfer credits, Graduation Planning System (GPS), important announcements and more. Use your BlazerID and password to login.
Step 3. Apply for or Accept Financial Aid
All it takes is one form. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.gov. Use Code 001052 to send your application to UAB.
Step 4. Complete Online Major Orientation
Online students will complete an online orientation session, which will provide you with resources designed to help you be successful at UAB and in an online environment. The Office of New Student Programs will send you a separate email with details.
Step 5. 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 6. Make an appointment with your academic advisor
You can rely on your academic advisor for information, assistance, and encouragement throughout your time at UAB. To review course selection before registration, students should meet with their advisor either by phone or email. You may make an appointment online with your advisor using the "My Appointment" button on your BlazerNET homepage.Login to BlazerNET
Step 7. Register for Classes
After students meet with their academic advisor, they will register for classes through BlazerNET using their BlazerID and password. Once a student is logged into BlazerNET, they should click on "Registration.”Login to BlazerNET
Step 8. Submit Final Transcripts
Students who are currently enrolled in high school or college will need to request that a final transcript be sent to our office:

Keep in mind, your admission is contingent pending receipt of all official and final transcripts.
