How to Submit Your FAFSA

  • Designate UAB as the school to receive your FAFSA
  • Include parental information unless you are age 30 or older, even if you:
    • Consider yourself independent
    • Receive no financial support from parents
    • Are married
    • Consider yourself having no financial need

If you have questions about completing the FAFSA, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 205-934-8223.

Including parental information is the policy of the UAB Financial Aid Office for determining the financial need for scholarships. If parental information is not included, you will not be considered for any need-based scholarships.
