We offer two types of preview days for prospective students: one for high school students looking to enter UAB after graduation, and one for college students who may be interested in transferring to UAB. Both offer a great overview of life at UAB: you’ll have the opportunity to speak with faculty, staff, and current students, take a guided walking tour of campus, and learn more about scholarships, academic programs, housing, financial aid, student life, and more!
