Events for Prospective Students

In addition to daily campus visits, UAH hosts events for prospective students on and off campus year-round. High school juniors and sophomores are invited along with their families to Charger Preview, which gives prospective students the chance to speak with representatives from Admissions, Financial Aid, and various student services; gain insight about the admissions process; join a student-led tour; attend an academic browsing tour; and enjoy a complimentary meal with UAH students.

On my campus visit, the tour guides showed me an honest look at what it’s like to be a student at UAH. When I saw the real student experience here, I knew it was where I wanted to be.
