Students with Disabilities
                The Student Disability Services office’s philosophy promotes self-awareness, self-determination and
                self-advocacy by providing education to students with disabilities about their rights and responsibilities so
                they can make informed choices in order to meet or exceed the standards of all students at UAB.


                Students needing to access their services will need to contact their office at uab.edu/studentdisability.

                Student Conduct

                The Student Conduct Code promotes honesty, integrity, accountability, rights and responsibilities expected
                of students consisted with the core missions of the University of Alabama at Birmingham. This Code describes
                the standards or behavior for all students, and outlines student’s rights, responsibilities, and the campus
                processes for adjudicating alleged violations.



                Advising
                Currently dual/concurrent enrollment students are advised to communicate with their local school counselor
                regarding their course selections. This will ensure students are staying on track with their graduation
                requirements. UAB does not provide or assist students with course selections.




                FERPA
                FERPA stands for the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. It is a federal law governing the
                privacy and handling of educational records and giving specific rights to students. You can read more about
                FERPA online at the Family Policy Compliance Office webiste: www2.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/index.html.


                FERPA covers students who are currently enrolled, or who were formerly enrolled, regardless of their age or
                status with regard to parental dependency.

               Orientation
               Dual/concurrent students are required to complete online orientation (beginning Spring 2019). This
               orientation course will give students an opportunity to learn a great deal of information about UAB and
               services that are offered. It also gives students a great resource they can   refer back to if they have
               questions while taking classes. 
Once students have been admitted they will receive an email with instructions
               on completing the course. They need to earn 80% on the quiz in order to successfully complete the orientation
               requirement. Students will not be allowed to register for courses until they have successfully completed the
               orientation.


               Students will have access to the course during the time they are actively enrolled.


               Enrollment Limits
               Students are allowed to take no more than one course per semester. They are not allowed to enroll in any
               mini terms during any semester they are enrolled.



               Academic Schedule and Calendar
               View UAB’s academic schedule and calendar at uab.edu/calendar.



               Add/Drop and Withdrawal Policy
               There are oftentimes reasons beyond a student’s control that they may need to drop a course. It is the
               student’s responsibility to check the academic calendar each semester they are enrolled to be knowledgeable
               of the drop date for that semester. It is also the student’s responsibility to inform their high school counselor if
               they decide to drop a course and submit a copy of the withdrawal documentation to their school administration.


               Student Transcripts

               Students can request an official or unofficial copy of their transcript online. The transcript will list the classes
               that have been taken. Instructions can be found on our website here.


               Registration Process

               Students should discuss class options with their school counselors to ensure they are staying on track with
               graduation requirements. GEAR UP Alabama UAB Start students are not permitted to register on their own.
               Follow instructions on this website for registration.
