Allied Health (UAB Programs)

Students interested in a baccalaureate degree from the School of Health Professions at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), can take two to three years of prerequisite courses at UWA. The number of courses depends on each student’s major field of interest. The student will then apply to the UAB program and, if accepted, transfer to the professional phase of the program at UAB. The degree will be awarded by UAB.

UWA strongly recommends that the student continually stay in touch with their academic advisor and their intended school as they go through the course work. This will ensure that all the courses transfer and alert the student if courses have been added or removed from the curriculum.
