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.

*For scholarships awarded only by Undergraduate Admissions — If tuition is being paid by an outside source, the scholarship dollars may be used for other educational expenses (room, board, books, etc).

**Students graduating with remaining tuition scholarship semester(s) may utilize these monies only toward graduate/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. (More information)
