Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

Very little financial aid outside of the normal federal loan. Teachers are generally friendly and willing to help, but they do not push the CFP exam like I believe they should. If you are attending the program and did not attend The University of Alabama as an undergraduate you can forget funding of any type even if you are academically superior. The courses could be harder to better prepare for the CFP exam.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

For starters, this survey should give me the option to opt out of questions that do not apply to "online" students like affordability of living, surrounding area, & transportation. My overall experience with UA has been very pleasant and as expected. Financial Aid is helpful and efficient. Teachers and Advisors are also responsive and professional. No regrets!

Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

The professors within the program are very knowledgeable and approachable. The university is eager to have not just students, but graduates. I have been very pleased with the level of education and training I have received at UA. The cons are the cost of tuition and parking and the lack of outreach for students who commute long distances for classes (working professionals).

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2016

The Speech-Language Pathology Graduate Program consists of five grueling, overloaded semesters of clinic and classroom responsibilities. While this is a con, it is also a pro. Students are trained to be top-notch clinicians, students and researches as they enter into the workforce. Graduate students are surrounded by welcoming faculty, ready to instruct or assist in any way possible as students navigate through the training camp that is graduate school. Students have the opportunity to gain experience in various areas of the program from the liberty of choosing internal or external client loads.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program at The University of Alabama is one I'm proud to be associated with. The faculty and staff are some of the warmest and most helpful people I've ever met. At UA, you are not simply a student or a number--you are they reason they are there. The school continues to bring in top notch professors and advisors, constantly striving to be better. That is what I love most about UA. The community at UA is also exciting. The "up and coming" area of Tuscaloosa is transforming this former "college town" into a vibrant city. As much as I love UA, there is something to say for the lack of diversity. I do believe it is getting better, but racial and ethnic groups are still very underrepresented in this area. As no school is perfect, however, I have been very pleased with my experience thus far and am looking forward to continuing my education.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2016

The University of Alabama Health Studies program is great for distance learners and is very inclusive even with loss of personal interaction. The program is expedient and straight to the point, while also allowing students to gain an exceptional amount of knowledge. The proximity to the CDC is also a bonus. The only con I have found is that the website is hard to use and it's easy to become confused with the requirements because users are directed all over the place.
