New for 2014!

We're Making Changes to Benefit You!

The Office of Admissions wants you to know about some exciting changes at UAH that will benefit you as a future Charger! We’ve made these changes in support of the university’s commitment to helping you complete your degree in four years and make the most of your college experience:

  • More AP scores accepted

    AP credit award criteria have been revised so that UAH accepts more scores for admitted students beginning Fall 2014!  More details »

  • Increased credit hour limit for Merit Tuition Scholarship

    The credit hour limit for Merit Tuition Scholarship awards has been increased from 16 to 18 hours per semester!

  • Now reviewing your latest high school transcripts

    UAH is now evaluating your high school GPA for admission and scholarships based on the transcript sent at time of admission. If your GPA increases between your admission and your high school graduation, your Merit Tuition Scholarship will be re-evaluated and adjusted as appropriate based on the final transcript sent.

  • UAH moving to block tuition

    Instead of paying by the credit hour, full-time students will soon be able to pay a flat rate for tuition per semester for up to 18 credit hours! You can learn more about the transition to this financially advantageous structure and its impact for 2014-15 in the tuition table.

Want to get a jump-start on fall classes and save money?

New for 2014-15, the UAH Freshman Summer School Incentive Program allows all first-time, full-time admitted students to take classes this summer at the reduced fall semester per credit hour rate. To qualify, all you need to do is contact the Office of Admissions and change your admission term from fall to summer. You must be a full-time student (12 or more credit hours) for the fall semester.

Here is an example of the way this works: If you take a three-credit course in the summer, you will pay the current 2013-14 tuition fees up front ($1,083). You then enroll for 12 credit hours in the fall. You will pay tuition fees on those 12 hours at the 2014-15 rate ($4,156). This would result in a combined total of 15 credit hours for the summer and fall semesters. We will then compare what you paid in total tuition costs for the summer and fall classes ($5,239) to the cost for 15 credit hours at the 2014-15 rate ($4,579). This would result in a refund to you of $660.

For additional information, please contact the Office of Admissions at 256.824.2773 or

If you are a UAH Merit Tuition Scholarship recipient, you may use a portion of your 2014-15 scholarship for these summer courses. For more information, please visit the UAH Financial Aid Scholarships page.
