Ready to make the move to UAB? Here’s what you need to submit to apply as a transfer student:

  • a completed application;
  • a nonrefundable $40 application fee, payable by credit or debit card
  • official transcripts from each college or university you’ve attended*
  • Students who have completed college-level work in a country other than the United States also must provide an evaluation from an approved credentials evaluation agency. Learn more about international transfer credits.

*UAB accepts both mailed and electronic transcripts - Mailing Address. Transcripts must be sent directly to UAB from the institution to be considered official. For transcripts sent through a secured transcript service (like Parchment, eScrip, or National Student Clearinghouse), please select University of Alabama at Birmingham from the vendor’s dropdown menu.
