Program Description:
Inbound Exchange Students

If you're a student at one of UAB's existing student exchange partner universities, you're eligible to apply to attend UAB as an exchange student for a semester or year.

First, apply to your home campus.  Begin by asking your home campus education abroad/student exchange office their requirements to earn an exchange student nomination. Spaces are limited, so your home campus will need to nominate you as an exchange student.

Second, apply to UAB.  Complete the UAB transient student application by clicking here.  (A "transient student" is someone attending UAB for just a semester or two, such as an exchange student, rather than being a degree-seeking student).

Third, have your home campus education abroad/student exchange office email your exchange student nomination package to the Office of Education Abroad The nomination package must include all of the following:
  • completed affidavit of financial support form,
  • letter of good standing from your home university,
  • scan of your passport photo page,
  • proof of English language proficiency (not applicable for UK and Australia students)*,
  • and transcripts from current and all previous universities you've attended.  
Finally, check your email for instructions to select courses, apply for housing, plan your arrival, attend orientation, and other important information.
