University of Alabama Class of 2026 Admissions

It took a while for dd to hear from UA. She applied on July 31 and was admitted on Oct 11.

Did you get an email?

My son, who applied on 10/19, received his acceptance email just now.
Good luck.

I just checked my inbox, and the acceptance email was there! Though, I’m still waiting on the acceptance via mail …

Just got my acceptance! So excited!


Did you guys who just heard about acceptance apply test optional?

Yes, my daughter did.

Gotcha, my daughter applied on 10/18 but sent test scores in. we haven’t heard anything yet.

I applied with scores! Since it’s rolling, the time to hear back can really depend. I wouldn’t stress :slight_smile:

Where in the portal do you see the decision response? Mine just has all green check marks and I don’t see where an admission decision would be located.

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

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.
