    * Because of limited testing opportunities throughout the United States, the University of Alabama will not require standardized ACT or SAT scores from students applying for the Spring, Summer or Fall 2021 semesters. Submission of a test will not create an inherent disadvantage against those who elect not to submit a score, nor will it be an unfair advantage to students who do submit a score.

We accept transcripts electronically through the following providers: Parchment/Naviance, E-Scripts, Scribbles, OverGrad, SCOIR, and National Student Clearinghouse.

The Capstone Creed requires that members of the University community “pursue knowledge, act with fairness, integrity and respect; promote equity and inclusion; foster individual and civic responsibility; and strive for excellence.” In order to foster an environment conducive to those goals, the University requires you to answer questions related to disciplinary and criminal history. Such history will not automatically bar your admission. Each application will be reviewed on its individual merits.
