Conditions of Admission

The Office of Admissions will notify the applicants of the admission decision. Admission to the University is often contingent upon the subsequent receipt of satisfactory and official college, university, or high school transcripts; verification of associate of arts or baccalaureate degrees; and verification of high school graduation. Failure to submit such documents before the end of the second week of class of the initial academic semester may result in the cancellation of admission.

Ownership of Submitted Documents

All credentials and documents submitted become the property of the University of Alabama in Huntsville. The originals or copies of the originals will not be returned to the applicant or forwarded to another institution, agency, or person.

Fraudulent Records

If it is found that an applicant has made a false or fraudulent statement or an omission on the application for admission, the residency statement, or any other accompanying documents or statements, the applicant may be denied admission. If the student is already enrolled when the fraud is discovered, the case will be adjudicated using the procedures specified for violations of the Student Code of Conduct and may result in the student's admission being rescinded and the student being dismissed from the University.

Disciplinary History Review

UAH is committed to ensuring a safe learning environment for all students, faculty, and staff. As a part of this commitment, students who indicate on their admissions application that they have pending criminal charges or have been convicted of a crime may be required to disclose information as a required step in the application process. In addition, students who have ever been expelled or dismissed from an educational institution for disciplinary reasons may also be required to disclose information as a required step in the application process. A previous conviction, pending criminal charges, or other expulsion or dismissal does not automatically bar admission to the University but does require review and evaluation.

Admission Appeals

A student may file an appeal only if they have officially been denied admission to the University.

After an official denial has been issued, the student may submit a written request to the Director of Admissions requesting that their application be reevaluated.

In order to move forward with an appeal, the student must submit a written statement outlining any information that is pertinent to the appeal, and a letter of recommendation from someone who knows the student from an academic perspective.  Additionally, updated transcripts and or test scores can also be submitted for review.
