4 Easy Steps to Become a Charger

Step 1
Apply for Admission

Create Charger Status Account

Charger Status is designed to help you navigate the UAH admissions process. Through your account you can:

  • Receive important information regarding the admissions process, scholarship opportunities, and upcoming events
  • Register for daily campus visits and events
  • Apply for admission and check the status of your application
  • Track what items have been received by the Office of Admissions
  • View a to-do list of next steps to help you stay on track

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


  • Sept. 1 (if currently living outside the United States)
  • Nov. 30 (if currently living inside the United States)


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


  • April 1 (if currently living outside the United States)
  • June 1 (if currently living inside the United States)

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.

Admitted students are requested to RSVP to let us know you will attend. Don't delay; space is limited.

Can't attend? All students will be emailed general orientation information so they don't miss out. Until then, be sure to review our Newly Admitted Graduate Student Guide to help you get started before the first day of classes.
