Entering Freshman Students
Entering freshmen must submit the following in order to be admitted by December 15 of their senior year and considered for academic scholarships:
- Application for admission
- Official high school transcript*
- Official test score on either the ACT or SAT
Entering freshmen should apply for scholarships during the fall of their senior year in high school. You must be admitted in order to access the scholarship application. If you need help, please refer to the step-by-step instructions for completing the scholarship application.
You must be admitted by December 15 in order to complete the scholarship application. This means the national December ACT and national December SAT results are the last college entrance examination results accepted for students who wish to be considered for scholarships.
In order to be considered for any non-merit scholarships you are eligible for as an incoming freshman, a completed scholarship application must be submitted online. To complete the scholarship application, go to myBama, log in, click the Admissions/Scholarships link from the main menu, then select the Application for Scholarships link within the Scholarships section of the page.
Once a scholarship application has been submitted, changes cannot be made to the application online. All changes must be submitted to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and Scholarships using our contact form.
When a student submits the scholarship application, it is disseminated to the National Alumni Association and the college/school in which you will major (e.g., Arts and Sciences, Business, etc.) for scholarship consideration. Entering freshmen are not responsible for submitting numerous applications to different departments.
The application is updated each year, so it is very important to wait until the senior year of high school to ensure that the correct application is completed.
* Grade point averages for 9th-11th grade are the only years reviewed for scholarship consideration.
