Entering freshmen must submit the following by December 15 of their senior year in high school to be considered for academic scholarships:
- Application for admission
- Application for scholarships
- Official high school transcript*
- Official test score on either the ACT or SAT
- Required scholarship documentation (if applicable)
Entering freshmen should apply for scholarships during the fall of their senior year in high school. A completed admissions application will need to be submitted to The University of Alabama before completing the scholarship application. If you need help please refer to the step-by-step instructions for completing the scholarship application.
The scholarship deadline is December 15 (the scholarship application should be submitted online by December 15 and any required materials sent by mail should be postmarked no later than December 15). This means that the national December ACT and national December SAT results are the last college entrance examination results accepted for students who wish to be considered for scholarships.
In order to be considered for any non-merit scholarships you are eligible for as an incoming freshman, a completed scholarship application must be submitted online. To complete the scholarship application, go to myBama, log in, click the Admissions/Scholarships link from the main menu, then select the Application for Scholarships link within the Scholarships section of the page. Please note that when you apply it generally takes 24-48 hours for you to receive your CWID so that you may access the scholarship application.
Once a scholarship application has been submitted, changes cannot be made to the application online.
* Grade point averages for 9th-11th grade are the only years reviewed for scholarship consideration.
