Typical Course Options

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. Academic advisers will help you decide what courses to take, based on your anticipated college major, high school requirements, and extracurricular activities.

Online courses are offered year-round, and you have the flexibility to study anytime, 24 hours per day / 7 days per week, anywhere you have access to high speed internet. If you live within driving distance of campus, you may choose to commute to campus for your classes. Always receive your high school counselor's permission before scheduling a course that requires you to leave your high school during the school day.

Fall and spring courses are taught online 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
