This program is intended for gifted and highly motivated candidates for B.A. and B.S. degrees at The University of Alabama whose objectives include master's or doctoral degrees. With a closely integrated undergraduate and graduate program, a qualified student begins graduate study in his or her senior year; such a program may lead to simultaneous completion of requirements for both master's and bachelor's degrees, each within its specified framework.
Any department that offers a graduate program may, with the approval of the dean of the Graduate School, participate in the University Scholars Program. An undergraduate student who wishes to exercise this option will typically apply for admission prior to his or her junior or senior year.
