Admission Requirements

Each applicant is evaluated based on individual merit and demonstrated success in a rigorous academic environment. High school and/or college coursework, grade point average, and language proficiency factor in admissions decisions.

Submit Required Documents

Complete your application by submitting your academic records and other required documents.

Academic Records

Submit certified academic records in the original language with a certified English translation from each institution attended.

Academic records for high school and college education received outside of the U.S. must be evaluated by a credential evaluation service and should comprise a document-by-document (high school) or course-by-course (college) evaluation and a grade point average for each institution attended.

Applicants have the responsibility to contact the evaluation agency directly so that the evaluation agency can send the official evaluation report to UAH; copies will not be accepted by UAH. Acceptable evaluation services are as follows:

English Proficiency Documentation

If English is not your native language, you must submit a TOEFL or IELTS score that meets UAH’s English proficiency requirements. (UAH TOEFL School Code is B887.)

You do not need to submit a TOEFL or IELTS score if:

  • English is your native language (the language used in the home where you were raised, in the schools where you were educated, and in your daily business)
  • you have graduated with a bachelor's degree or higher from an accredited university in the U.S.
  • Are you an F1 or J1 student?

    If you are an F1 or J1 student, you must also submit an affidavit of financial support for $37,772 and original documents (such as official bank letter) that prove that you or your sponsor has access to fluid funds sufficient to cover at least one year's tuition and living expenses.
