FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is UAEC? An opportunity to earn college credits in high school.

What is the difference between UAEC classes and AP or Dual Enrollment classes? UAEC classes are taught by UA professors. Most classes are online, but some are taught in a blended style with professors visiting our campus every three to four weeks. Students taking these classes are considered college AND high school students and will receive a college ID identical to UA students in Tuscaloosa.

Is there a cost? At this time, the only cost is for textbook(s).

What classes will I take? In the 10th grade, you must first take the UAEC Gateway class. This is a 4 week online course that teaches you research skills and other ways to become a successful college student. Upon successful completion of Gateway, students will have an opportunity to take up to 2 courses per semester in the 11th and 12th grades. These classes range from English, History, Computer Science, Anthropology, Psychology, Women’s Studies, Philosophy, and more!

What are the qualifications? 3.0 unweighted GPA, benchmark scores on the ACT in English and Reading, and acceptable attendance and discipline records.

How many sophomores will be accepted? We have funding for approximately 40.

How do I apply? Register to take the ACT in December at www.act.org. Registration (without a late fee) ends November 3. The cost for the exam is $46. Applications will be available in the Main Office December - February. Follow the instructions, complete the application, and attach a copy of your ACT results. Notifications will take place during January - March.
