Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is your application deadline?

    For an entering freshman student, the fall priority deadline is August 1.

    For an entering transfer student, the fall priority deadline is August 1 and the spring priority deadline is December 1.

  • What is your scholarship process and deadline?

    An entering freshman wishing to be considered for academic scholarships must be admitted to the university by December 1. There is not a separate application; the admission application serves as your scholarship application.

Please visit the Scholarships page to learn more.

    A student transferring from a two-year community college must be admitted by June 1 prior to enrolling in the fall term.

  • What if my student doesn’t meet the admissions criteria?

    The Office of Admissions encourages all students to apply for admission to the University. Students not accepted based off of admissions criteria and wishing to appeal the admissions decision should contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for further instruction.

  • Are there leadership-based scholarships and/or departmental scholarships?

    Yes, the University of Montevallo does offer scholarships based upon a student’s involvement and extracurricular activities in school. Students not meeting the criteria for academic-based scholarships are encouraged to submit a résumé, along with completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) as demonstrated need is also considered in awarding such scholarships. Leadership-based scholarships are generally awarded in February and March.

    The University offers some departmental scholarships for entering freshmen: those departments generally are Music, Theatre, English, and Art.
