JUNIOR INFORMATION

  • Leadership Opportunity: The University of Alabama Early College prepares motivated high school juniors and seniors for long-term academic success by fostering personal accountability and time-management skills through online classes.  Early College offers the same curriculum as regular college classes so students should expect the same academic rigor found in freshman level classes on campus. Students can earn up to 30 college credit hours through the online program and with a 2.5 GPA or higher on college work students can earn admission status to the University of Alabama. There is scholarship money available for this program. Please visit www.uaearlycollege.ua.edu to learn more about the program.
