University Of Alabama Essay Questions 2012 Dodge

General

How can I be considered for scholarships?

As an entering freshman (applying for the Fall semester following your senior year of high school), you will need to send a completed application for admission, official high school transcript (grades 9-11), official ACT or SAT scores, application fee, and a completed scholarship application by December 15 of your senior year in high school.

As an incoming transfer undergraduate student (applying for the Fall semester), you will need to send a completed application for admission, official college transcript(s) from any college(s) attended, application fee, and a completed scholarship application by March 1.

Please note that when you apply it generally takes 24-48 hours for you to receive your Campus Wide ID (CWID) so that you may access the scholarship application.

Can scholarships be combined?

Undergraduate Admissions and Scholarships will not award multiple merit-based scholarships to a student.

The value of institutional scholarship funds, or the combination of institutional scholarships with the faculty/staff Educational Benefit may not exceed the cost of attendance as outlined at http://financialaid.ua.edu/cost/. This does not affect any outside sources of aid such as veteran benefits, PACT, external agency and scholarships, privately funded scholarships, federal grants and loans.

Some scholarships can be combined depending on the source; for specific questions please email us.

Does the University have performance-based scholarships?

If you have a special talent or ability - such as music, debate, art, or athletics - that you might like to develop at The University of Alabama, financial assistance may be available to you through that specific department. To find out more about performance-based scholarships, please contact the appropriate department; or for guidance, call Undergraduate Admissions at 1-800-933-2262 or 205-348-5666 for more information.

Can a student receive more than one scholarship?

Yes, students can receive multiple scholarships from the University. However, a student cannot receive two tuition scholarships.

The value of institutional scholarship funds, or the combination of institutional scholarships with the faculty/staff Educational Benefit may not exceed the cost of attendance as outlined at http://financialaid.ua.edu/cost/. This does not affect any outside sources of aid such as veteran benefits, PACT, external agency and scholarships, privately funded scholarships, federal grants and loans.

Do I have to be admitted in order to complete the scholarship application?

No, you do not have to be admitted. However, you do need to complete and submit the general admissions application at least five days prior to the December 15th scholarship deadline. When you apply it generally takes 24-48 hours for you to receive your Campus Wide ID (CWID) so that you may access the scholarship application.

Eligibility

Do I need to submit my scholarship application to be considered for merit-based scholarships?

No, students only need to have the completed application for admission, application fee, official high school transcript (grades 9-11), and official ACT or SAT scores submitted by December 15. A submitted scholarship application before December 15 is still encouraged, as it allows a student to be considered for additional scholarships through academic departments and the National Alumni Association.

Merit-Based

How can the Presidential Scholarship be used to pay for part of graduate school?

Students graduating with remaining tuition scholarship semester(s) may use these monies only toward graduate or law school study at UA. To be eligible, students must enroll in graduate/law school during the first available semester after receiving an undergraduate degree. While you may have a break of a semester or more between receiving your undergraduate degree and enrolling in graduate/law school (e.g., if you graduate in December and your graduate/law program begins in the fall), students may not enroll in any other college or university during that period of time.

Maintaining Scholarship

Miscellaneous

As a current student on scholarship, can I defer my scholarship for a semester?

Depending on the type of scholarship you are on, a committee will review your request for deferral of the scholarship for a semester. The University of Alabama must remain your home institution in order to keep your scholarship. This means that you cannot attend another institution during a fall/spring semester while you are away. You can select to defer your scholarship through MyBama (Click the Admissions/Scholarships link then go to the Scholarships pane and find the Scholarship Deferral Request Form). You will need to contact the department that awarded the scholarship for further details.

When will I be notified about receiving scholarships?

As a first time freshman you will be notified once you are admitted if you qualify for a merit based scholarship through Undergraduate Admissions. In addition, a consolidated scholarship letter will be mailed in mid-March to scholarship recipients detailing all scholarship offers that you have received from UA.

As a transfer student you will be notified in April if you were awarded any scholarships.

Admission Requirements for Freshman Students

The University of Alabama employs a competitive admission process that includes reviewing and evaluating each application on an individual basis for an applicant’s abilities as a student and a scholar. Decisions about the potential for your academic success at UA are based on your performance on the ACT and/or SAT, your high-school grade point average, and your high-school course schedule. (For example: A student with a 21 ACT or 1000 old SAT [critical reading and math scores only] or a 1080 new SAT [evidence-based reading and writing plus math, 1600 scale] along with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 should be successful at the University.)

A Note About Test Scores

  • The University of Alabama will accept from both the previous SAT and the redesigned SAT (any SAT taken on or after March 5th, 2016).
  • If you have taken the previous SAT and the redesigned SAT, we will use your highest score for your admission and scholarship application reviews. Highest score will be determined by utilizing test score conversion by College Board.
  • The optional writing section in the redesigned SAT will not be required for admissions or scholarship purposes.
  • The writing section of the ACT will no longer be required for admissions or scholarship purposes.

We are looking for students who show a commitment to academics and who welcome the robust exchange of ideas that occurs within a diverse and inclusive learning environment. Typically, the number of applications received exceeds the number of spaces available in the freshman class.

In terms of educational preparation, the college preparatory curriculum minimum unit requirements for regular admissions are

  • 4 units of English
  • 4 units of social sciences, including world history or a comparable course
  • 3 units of mathematics (must include algebra I, algebra II, and one unit of either geometry, trigonometry, or calculus)
  • 3 units of natural sciences, including two courses with lab components
  • 1 unit of foreign language
  • 5 additional units of academic courses (We recommend courses in fine arts or computer literacy, with additional courses in mathematics, natural sciences, and foreign language.)

Students who exceed the minimum number of units in math, natural sciences, or foreign language will be given additional consideration.

The Advanced Academic Diploma awarded by Alabama high schools meets all University of Alabama course requirements.

The University of Alabama reserves the right to refuse admission or re-enrollment or to place conditions on admission or re-enrollment of applicants and former students who it determines represent a safety risk to University students, employees, and University property. Applicants have the right to appeal any such decision to the Undergraduate Admissions Advisory Committee within 7 business days of the date the notice was received.

Withholding information or giving false information may make you ineligible for admission to, or continuation at, the University. Therefore, by submitting this information, you certify that it is true, correct, and complete. Also, by submitting this application, you give permission for the University to obtain additional information from others pertinent to your record prior to attending the University.
