Academics


  • A final high school transcript, including date of graduation, is due within four weeks of graduation. If the final official transcript is not received, you may become ineligible to register for courses or your schedule may be adjusted. You can send your official transcripts to UAH using Docufide/Parchment, E-Scrip, or Student Clearinghouse, or ask your school to send your official hard-copy transcript to UAH Admissions, 301 Sparkman Drive, SSB, Suite 106, Huntsville, AL 35899.


  • To receive credit for dual-enrollment courses, you will need to submit an official college transcript. To receive credit for Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), or College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams, official test scores must be sent by the testing agency. Visit CollegeBoard and use UAH school code 1854 for AP and CLEP, and visit IBO for IB. Once official transcripts and test scores have been received and evaluated, you may view your credit on your Academic Transcript through your my.uah.edu account.


  • Determine your academic placement for English, foreign language, math, or chemistry by reviewing our Academic Placement Guidelines. It is critical for students to take the right courses to set them on a path to success. Academic placement for new students is determined by your ACT/SAT results, AP/IB scores, and/or previous college credit. If you applied test optional or feel that your math placement needs to be re-evaluated, you have the option to take a Math Placement Test. We strongly advise finalizing your academic placement before attending New Student Orientation.
