School: University of Alabama at Birmingham

  • Major: Computer and Information Science
  • Degree: Masters (2002 to 2004)
  • GRE 1810/2400
  • TOEFL: 250

Financial Aid:

If you get an on-campus job, you are qualified for in-State tuition fee and that is less than half the regular fees.

Most of the students manage to get an on-campus job.
Cost of living is very low.
A two-bedroom apartment costs between $450 and $600.

I also learned that in Fall 2007, most of the students who applied got admitted with some forms of Scholarship or Assistantship.

So I advise our readers to check out UAB and try to talk to a couple of seniors who are attending the University of Alabama @ Birmingham.

It does look like a good school to study at, since getting a part time job will qualify you for in-State fees.

    Majority of the schools, when you get RA or TA you will be eligible for in-state. so, it will be the case with UAB.

  3. Hi,

    Since PhD students at UAB are asked to work as TA as a part of their curriculum. Does that make them eligible for in-state fees?
