Undergraduate Admissions


When it comes time to make your college decision, don’t ask yourself where you want to go—ask yourself who you want to be.

Do you want to be a deep thinker, pushing the limits of classroom learning? Do you want to be active, involved, and engaged in your academic community? Do you want to create something original, eye-opening, and impactful, whether it’s on a concert stage or in a laboratory? Do you want to be a leader, an innovator, and a pioneer? If you’ve answered “yes” to all of the above, you’ve come to the right place.

Montevallo’s campus is just a 45-minute drive from Birmingham, the largest city in Alabama. With countless businesses throughout the area, there are internship opportunities and career possibilities everywhere you turn. And if you’re just looking for an escape, Birmingham offers premier entertainment year round, from concerts and plays to a thriving food scene.

Scores of ­23 or higher on the ACT (or SAT equivalent) qualify students for in-state tuition rates. Visit our scholarships page for additional information.

Kellie Fromholzer — Speech Pathology, May 2014

As a girl born and raised in the large city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I never dreamed that I would be attending college in Alabama. I wanted to find a school that was credible for my major, had pleasant weather, and most importantly, felt like home.

Even though I visited campus on one of the rainiest and coldest days that year, I could not help but fall in love with it. I loved the classic charm the campus possessed with the big trees, brick roads, and beautiful buildings. I was able to meet many students and faculty members during my visit, and every person I talked to made me feel so welcomed. I immediately was overcome with a sense of belonging and relief knowing that I had found the perfect school for me. Montevallo has presented me with so many opportunities, enabling me to become the president of my sorority and to build connections with faculty and students across campus. I am so thankful that I chose the University of Montevallo; my true home away from home.
