The University of Alabama Announces Free App Week, Oct. 18-22

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — The University of Alabama is waiving application fees for domestic and international prospective students from Monday, Oct. 18, through Friday, Oct. 22.

“UA continues to be a sought-after destination for talented undergraduate students,” said Dr. Matthew McLendon, associate vice president and executive director of enrollment management at The University of Alabama. “In fact, we just welcomed the largest first-year class in the history of the institution. Free App Week expands our reach and gives all students the opportunity to discover how UA can be a great fit for them.”

During Free App Week, The University of Alabama aims to empower prospective students by removing financial barriers that may keep them from applying for admission.

To receive instructions on how to submit an undergraduate application for free, applicants must first submit their contact information on the Undergraduate Admissions’ Free App Week page.

Prospective undergraduate students must submit their applications and supporting documents, including unofficial transcripts, by 11:59 p.m. CDT Oct. 22 to waive their application fee.

For more information on requirements for undergraduate admission, visit UA’s freshman and transfer requirements pages.

The Graduate School is also waiving application fees from Oct. 18 to Oct. 22.

To reserve a graduate application waiver, students may sign up on the Graduate School’s Free App Week page.

Only one code is allowed per student and will be valid only for a single application. Due to processing times, international students may only apply for summer and fall 2022 terms. To redeem a code, graduate students must submit their applications and supporting documents no later than 5 p.m. Oct. 22.

Students should visit the Graduate School’s supporting documents page for more about general graduate admission requirements. For more on program-specific documents and requirements, students should contact the program director.
