School Details

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.
