4 Easy Steps to Become a Charger


Step 1
Apply for Admission

Complete the appropriate Graduate Application for Admission form.

Priority admittance will be given to individuals who apply by the following dates:


  • October 1 (if currently living outside the United States)
  • November 30 (if currently living inside the United States)


  • February 1 (if currently living outside the United States)
  • March 15 (if currently living inside the United States)


  • June 1 (for domestic and international applicants)

Once your application has been submitted and all supporting documentation have been received, it typically takes approximately 15-30 business days for an admissions decision to be made. U.S. Citizens may apply non-degree seeking if there is not sufficient time to for an admission decision or to acquire necessary documents.

  • Transcripts - Send your official transcripts to UAH through an electronic delivery service such as Docufide/Parchment, E-Scrip, or Student Clearinghouse. If your school does not have access to these services, you can request that they send your official hard-copy transcripts to:

    UAH Graduate Admissions
    301 Sparkman Drive
    SSB 222
    Huntsville, AL 35899

  • GRE/GMAT/MAT scores - Have your official scores sent directly to UAH by the testing agency.
