Step 4. Take the Math Placement Assessment

Students who have not completed a college-level math course (excludes remedial math and Finite Math) with a grade of C or better must take the Math Placement Assessment. Students must take the test at least one week before registering for classes. To access the Math Placement Assessment, log into BlazerNET using your BlazerID and password.

Step 5. 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.

Step 6. 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.”

Step 7. Submit Final Transcripts

UAB Office of Undergraduate Admissions
Box 99
1702 2nd Ave S
Birmingham, AL 35294-2936

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