I’m Accepted… Now What?
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.
Confirm Your Enrollment
Now is the time to confirm your plans to become a Montevallo Falcon by paying your $100 Enrollment Deposit (fall tuition prepayment). This one-time fee confirms your spot in the incoming class, is non-refundable, must be paid before registering for orientation, and will apply as credit to your university student account.
Enrollment Deposit Priority Date for Fall Semester (Incoming Freshmen): May 1st
Enrollment Deposit Priority Date for Fall Semester (Transfer Students): June 1st
Where To Live
If you’ll be attending UM, you will need to figure out where to live. If you’d like to live on campus, start by submitting your housing application. Housing placement is based on the date of your housing application, so apply early. Housing decisions and roommate information are sent out by the first of June each year. If you have any questions you may contact the Housing & Residence Life office at email@example.com or 205-665-6235. You may also join our Facebook housing group to connect with other incoming students who are looking for a roommate.
Financial Aid, Payment Plan and Scholarships
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). If you have any questions you may contact the Student Aid office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 205-665-6050.
Outside of federal financial aid, UM offers a monthly payment plan which is setup in June/July for the fall semester and October/November for spring term.
Merit based scholarships are automatically awarded once a student is admitted. However, students can apply for additional, non-merit scholarships on their Award Spring scholarship account. Note that all students must use their UM student account login credentials for this application.
Scholarship Deadline: March 1
Set Up Your Student Account
To set up your student account, view course schedules, and check your financial aid, set up your UM student account today. You will need your UM student ID number (M #) and six digit birthdate (mmddyy) when you setup your student account. Your UM student ID number can be found on your acceptance letter. Please note that you must set up your account prior to attending orientation and to apply for scholarships.

Send AP, IB, CLEP, AICE and Dual Enrollment
