Transfer Steps to Enrollment

Step 1 – Apply for Undergraduate Admission 

The first step of our journey toward becoming a legend is to submit your application for admission to UA. Our undergraduate admissions application is straight-forward and easy to fill out, however there are some documents required before you make your final submission.

Step 2 – Complete the FAFSA

UA priority date to apply for federal student aid is December 1. Once you have been admitted to UA, you will need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and submit any required documents to Student Financial Aid.

Step 3 – Orientation

Registration for Bama Bound Orientation, UA’s new student orientation, opens in early February. Bama Bound includes a visit with your college or school to learn about different opportunities to be involved in your major and to meet with an adviser to register for your courses.

Step 4 – Secure Housing

Unlike incoming freshmen, transfer students are not required to live on-campus at UA. Transfer students are able to apply for housing as space allows. For those who would like to live off-campus, there are numerous student-focused apartment complexes and rental houses available in Tuscaloosa.

Step 5 – Immunizations

Submit the Medical History Form and Proof of Immunization to the Student Health Center immediately upon admission to UA. (link to immunization form)

Step 6 – Welcome to Campus

We can’t wait to see you on campus.
