For high school students who live in the Tuscaloosa area there is an opportunity to commute to campus for classes during fall and spring. You will take freshman and sophomore level college courses with other University of Alabama students on campus in Tuscaloosa. It’s a great way to earn college credit from a premier university and get a feel for the college classroom setting.

All students have the option for Summer On Campus, which allows not only the on-campus academic experience, but incorporates living on a premier college campus.

Students from around the world are taking classes with UA Early College. The flexibility of online learning is one thing students, just like you, really like, but they also enjoy the ability to learn with peers from all walks of life and backgrounds, since their classes are made of students not limited to a geographic region.
