UA Announces Free App Week Oct. 17-21

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — The University of Alabama is again waiving application fees for domestic and international undergraduate, graduate and online prospective students from Oct. 17 to 21.

During Free App Week, UA aims to empower prospective students by removing the financial barriers that may keep them from applying for admission.

“Over the last two years, UA welcomed a record number of students to our first-year class, achieved gains in diverse student representation, and increased the number of National Merit Scholars,” said Dr. Matt McLendon, associate vice president and executive director for enrollment management.

“Free App Week provides students with increased accessibility and an excellent opportunity to discover a university that provides both solid academic engagement and a vibrant campus culture.”

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.

“One of the nation’s fastest growing and most dynamic top 50 public universities, The University of Alabama Graduate School offers over 150 master’s, educational specialist and doctoral programs led by some of the brightest minds in the world,” said Dr. Susan Carvalho, associate provost and dean of the graduate school.

“Student success is empowered through cutting-edge research and equipment, state-of-the-art facilities and visionary colleagues. Free App Week is just one more way we are opening our doors to those who are ready for the next step in their professional and personal careers.”
