Frequently Asked Questions

What is your application deadline?

For an entering freshman student, the fall priority deadline to apply is August 1 and spring priority deadline is December 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?

Any entering freshman wishing to be considered for academic scholarships must be admitted to the university by February 1st of their senior year. There is not a separate application; the admission application serves as your scholarship application. However, the Montevallo Ambassador Program Scholarship (M.A.P.S.) requires a résumé and potential interview on campus. 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.

Once accepted, your student can visit our Award Spring website to apply for additional scholarships.

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.

Can I check my student’s status online?

Visit our Online Status page to check the status of your student’s application. Contact the Office of Admissions at 205-665-6030 or to obtain your ID and password.
