On-Campus Course List

Once you become a UA Early College student and pass the UAEC 200 College Readiness Course, you will be able to choose from a broad selection of University of Alabama courses. If you live within driving distance of campus, you may choose to commute to campus for your classes. Academic advisers will help you decide what courses to take, based on your anticipated college major, high school requirements, and extracurricular activities. Always receive your high school counselor's permission before scheduling a course that requires you to leave your high school during the school day.

About On-Campus Courses

On-campus courses are offered year-round, at specific times and on specific days of the week. Fall and spring courses are taught over a 15 week term. Summer courses online are taught over a 10-week or a 4-week term.

  • Fall term usually runs from mid-August to mid-December
  • Spring term usually runs from early January to early May
  • Summer 10-week term usually runs from late May to early August
  • Summer 4-week terms run the month of June and the month of July

The Summer On Campus program requires a separate application. Registering for summer semester on-campus courses is not the same as participating in Summer On Campus. You may find application information by visiting the Summer On Campus webpage.

Parking on-campus will require a parking permit. Whether during the school day or evenings, the parking permit will need to be clearly displayed while in the appropriate parking zone. Visit the Parking Services webpage for more information about parking permits.
