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.
This school offers doctoral programs in 37 areas, post-master’s education specialist programs in 8 areas, and master’s level programs in 50 areas, spanning across various disciplines.
The University of Alabama at Birmingham ranks among the top 20 institutions receiving federal research funding. With more than $433 million dollars in funds, UAB is home to more than 100 research centers.
