Student & Graduate Reviews

3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2016

The Chemistry program at U of Alabama, Tuscaloosa is a good graduate program in my opinion. I think the course load is very manageable to allow one to get a good amount of research done during the term. The professors are also very accessible and helpful resources. My only issue with this school is that it is a 'football-first-all-others-second' type of school. They really value their football program that sometimes it seems it is valued more than academics itself. It really doesn't affect graduate work, but I've had to park far away from the chemistry building on gameday because the lot was reserved for people going to see the game.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2019

The campus seems unsafe at night, but the program is really helping me learn and become a a quality biologist.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

I have just started the program, but my professor has been incredibly encouraging and helpful. I was initially hoping to take classes on campus, but the class has been great and I have learned so much already. I am very much looking forward to continuing the pursuit of my degree.

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.

4.25 out of 5.0

Graduation Year: 2019

With the lowest prices and high ranking, it is one of the most valuable law schools in the nation.
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2015

I would HIGHLY recommend this program. It is fun and the professors and staff really care about your success.
4.83 out of 5.0
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!
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The University of Alabama has an outstanding Higher Education Administration program. Professors are passionate about their field and want students to succeed.
3.83 out of 5.0
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).
