Applicants Graduating from High School in 2021

UAB is committed to evaluating admission applications fairly and holistically in light of the current pandemic. Admission and scholarship deadlines may change depending on the timing and availability of high school transcripts as well as ACT and SAT exams this fall. We will continue to monitor College Board and ACT test offerings closely and provide additional guidance regarding standardized testing if necessary. In the event you are unable to take an ACT or SAT due to the impact of COVID-19, we will consider PSAT and PreACT scores as well as the Residual ACT offered on our campus. Please contact your admissions counselor to discuss options.

We will ask any guest who displays symptoms related to COVID-19, has experienced symptoms related to COVID-19 in the past fourteen (14) days or who has come in contact with someone with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 in the past fourteen (14) days not to participate in activities on campus.
