Admission Requirements:        

Neuroscience has additional admission requirements beyond those at UAB.

  • High school students with 28 or higher on the ACT and a GPA of at least 3.5 will be considered for immediate acceptance into the Neuroscience Program after their application is received and reviewed. Students may compensate for an ACT score of less than 28 with exceptional classroom performance including scores of 4 or 5 on certain AP exams.
  • Others may choose to attend UAB for a year and will then be evaluated for admission based on excellent classroom performance. We are especially interested in performance in the following courses: Biology 123 and 124 and Chemistry 115 and 117. Current UAB students whose high school credentials meet the minimum requirements and/or whose performance in college courses is excellent may apply at any time.
