For Graduate School general admission requirements, please visit the UAB Graduate School website.

The Deadline for all materials to be in the Graduate School office is July 1st.

When should I apply?

To avoid overwhelming server traffic generated by the high volume of applications that the UAB Graduate School receives, candidates are encouraged to submit their application as early as possible prior to the admission deadline. By applying early, candidates will have more time to secure official transcripts before the application deadline.

Candidates should complete the degree-seeking application. The application includes:

  • A non-refundable application fee of $50.00
  • Personal Statement highlighting your desire for enrollment and how you will utilize the knowledge gained in your professional career
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Official transcripts from all previous academic work beyond secondary submitted directly to the UAB Graduate School
