International students at The University of Alabama join a community that is culturally, academically, and economically diverse. Our more than 30,000 students come from across the United States and more than 90 foreign countries, and international students represent almost 5 percent of our total student population. Since 1831, The University of Alabama has offered students a high-quality education at an affordable cost, which is in part why U.S. News & World Report has listed UA as one of the top 50 public universities in the nation for each of the last 10 years.
