The University of Alabama opened for admission of students on April 18, 1831, in Tuscaloosa. Extension centers, offering both day and evening classes, were established in Birmingham, Huntsville, Montgomery, Mobile, Dothan, and Gadsden in the first half of the 20th century. The Birmingham and Huntsville centers evolved into new university campuses, which were established in addition to the Tuscaloosa campus. Over four decades, UAB has evolved from an academic extension center into an autonomous, comprehensive research university and academic health center within the University of Alabama System.
UAB has established wide-ranging undergraduate and graduate programs from the following colleges and schools:
College of Arts and Sciences
Collat School of Business
School of Dentistry
School of Education
School of Engineering
School of Health Professions
School of Medicine
School of Nursing
School of Optometry
School of Public Health
UAB offers access to totally online and blended format degree and certificate programs at all levels that are an extension of UAB’s traditional campus and the values of boldness and innovation.
