University of Alabama Class of 2026 Admissions

It’ll just pop up at the bottom of the page with the letter saying Congratulations, You’ve Been Admitted! There isn’t anything to click or anything to take you to another page.


I was told there is no automatic merit if you didn’t submit SAT scores…otherwise you need to wait until Jan/feb to hear if you receive any other scholarship $$


So sorry. I thought I responded. It took about two weeks to hear back. It was fast.

@beachmama1 Thank you for this info!

Our son just got admitted to UA! Applied October 22nd.
4.0 Weighted / Test Optional


D22 was admitted last week…Communications…4.2 weighted GPA…28 ACT…Full IB Diploma…OOS…Texas.

Where do you see how much scholarship money was given? Do you need to create a MyBama account? My acceptance is in my freshman portal but it then says to create a Mybama account. This is a safety school for me but curious about merit.

Good questions…but I am not sure exactly how to answer them. Right now Alabama is a safety for my D22 as well. Although she is thankful to be admitted and is eligible for merit according to Alabama’s website, she has not confirmed exactly how much.

Did she create a MyBama account?

Not yet…that will be on the “to do” list for this weekend.

We received a letter in the mail in September letting us know about the merit amount. We have not seen it on the Mybama site.


DS 22 applied 10-30, they received official SAT score 11-02, accepted today, came up on portal. OOS, 4.3 GPA/1330 SAT, waiting for Merit information.


DD got her acceptance yesterday! Applied 11/4, 3.81 weighted GPA, test optional, OOS, heavy honors/AP/DE course load and lots of fine arts/honor society extra curricular activities. Roll tide!


OOS DS 22 submitted ACT

  • applied 10/19,
  • accepted 11/8.
  • Finally receive mailed letter today: merit Presidential $28K.

11/18: submitted Supplemental Scholarship Application, hoping for the National Hispanic Recognition award,
==>==> but we won’t hear back until early March?

“Thank you for submitting your Freshman Supplemental Scholarship Application. Students can expect consolidated scholarship notifications via their Crimson Mail account in early March.”


The 2 days of tours and meetings set up for my DD through the Honors College were amazing! Private sit-downs with department heads. We also joke that you would have thought she was a 5 Star QB recruit! :slight_smile:


Has anyone received their Competitive Scholarship offer? It mentions first round notification by mid December if you were admitted in October. My daughter said her 2022-2023 Financial Aid page was no longer available when she checked today. Maybe an indication that they are getting updated?

Where is the 2022-2023 Financial Aid Page? Is it in MyBama?

I could not find my award year either. I hope they get released soon

Yes, in MyBama. Not there this morning again.

I just got an email from UA about scholarships. It said that my application has been rolled to the second round of UA competitive admissions scholarships. What is the difference between first round and second round? Will I have a lesser chance of receiving a large scholarship because I was moved to the second round? Thank you for all of your help!
