Once you’ve been accepted to attend the University of Montevallo, we’re here to help you with everything you’ll need to prepare for college. This section details all of the things you need to do or think about before starting your journey at Montevallo.
A Few Things to Consider
Where To Live
If you’ll be attending UM, you’ll need to figure out where to live. If you’d like to live on campus, start by submitting your housing application.
Almost all students need some sort of financial aid to help pay for school. We strongly encourage incoming and returning students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Get Oriented with Montevallo
You’ll need to attend the New Student Orientation on campus, and in order to do that, you’ll need to complete and turn in the necessary medical health forms (these should be sent to you as soon as you’re accepted).
Once you attend the New Student Orientation session, you’ll have all the information you need to begin your studies here at UM.
All incoming students are required to submit the following to Student Health Services:
- Student Medical History Form
- Tuberculosis Risk Questionnaire
- Proof of Measles Immunity (example: copy of your shot record showing two doses of MMR)
Even though the Varicella (Chicken Pox), Tetanus, Hepatitis B and Meningitis Vaccines are not required they are strongly recommended.
Student Health Services is located at Station 6275 in East Main Hall. You may fax your information to 205-665-8180.
Accepted Student Reception
The Admissions Office will host a reception for all entering freshmen accepted for the fall semester on Friday, April 25 at 9:00 a.m. President Dr. John W. Stewart III will be there to welcome you and you’ll have your chance to have all of your final Montevallo questions answered and speak with representatives from all academic departments, Office of Financial Aid, New Student Orientation, Student Housing & Residence Life, and Office of Student Life.
You may RSVP by contacting the Admissions Office at 205-665-6030 or 1-800-292-4349.
Disability Support Services
Students with disabilities are encouraged to contact Disability Support Services (DSS) prior to or upon enrollment at the University. Requests for services and accommodations will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and must relate specifically to the students’ disability. Visit Disability Support Services for applications and necessary documentation.
