These questions are often asked by prospective residents as they prepare to move to campus.

Housing Application Process

As an incoming freshman, how do I apply for housing?

The online housing application is available beginning at 9 a.m. CDT on October 1. Complete the application on myhousing.ua.edu using the username and password assigned by Undergraduate Admissions and pay the $200 deposit ($35 non-refundable application fee and $165 housing prepayment) in order to register for on campus housing (freshmen must pay the Freshman Enrollment Deposit in order to apply for housing; this deposit is separate from the housing deposit). Students who apply by February 1, 2023, will have access to online room selection in May. HRC will email students eligible for room selection in the spring with details about the housing selection process.  Students who apply on February 2 or after will be assigned by HRC staff from late May through late July/early August.

When should I submit my housing application?

Once UA admits a student and receives the Freshman Enrollment Deposit, the housing application is available, beginning on October 1. Apply as soon as possible to increase your housing options, as access to online room selection and housing assignments by HRC staff are based in part on when a student completes their housing application. Other factors including gender, LLC participation, and roommate. We let students participating in Freshman Room Selection (FRS) pull in a mutually preferred roommate ineligible for FRS, if space allows. Apply by February 1 to select your own room online in May. HRC staff assign rooms beginning in late mid-May for students ineligible for FRS. We take into consideration roommate preference and building preference as space permits. Students who apply May 1 or later may not receive their housing assignments until late July. Participation in online room selection does not guarantee that specific buildings or room styles will be available.

Is there a deposit due with my application?

A $200 deposit ($35 non-refundable application fee and $165 housing prepayment) is due with your housing application. If you do not attend UA and cancel your housing application by May 1, 2022, HRC will refund you $165. If you cancel by June 1, 2022, HRC will refund you $100. To cancel your housing application, submit a cancellation request through the HRC website.

Housing Assignments

How will I receive a housing assignment?

Students who participate in Freshman Room Selection (FRS) select their room in May. HRC staff assign rooms beginning in late May for students eligible for FRS who do not participate or students ineligible for FRS in order of when they completed their application. We take into consideration roommate preferences and building preference as space permits, but neither can be guaranteed. Students who apply May 1 or later may not receive their housing assignments until mid-July or after. Housing assignment information is emailed to students’ Crimson email address.

When does Freshman Room Selection begin?

Apply for housing by February 1, 2023, to select your own room online from available options. Room selection takes place in the spring. Eligible students will receive their specific log in date/time by email.

Can I live with a roommate of my choice during my freshman year?

Students have the opportunity to select a roommate eligible for the same community as themselves. For example, both students need to be in the Honors College in order to live in Honors Housing. Students can search for and select a roommate through My College Roomie, if they wish. Students will have access to MCR beginning in the fall and call form roommate groups starting in February. A student eligible to select their room online can pull in their mutually preferred roommate to their room if the prospective roommate is eligible to live in the hall and space allows. HRC staff assign students that apply after February 1 and aim to assign them with their requested roommate, if space allows. Review our Roommates page for a guide to walk you through the process of searching/requesting a roommate.

Can I live anywhere on campus during my freshman year?

Eligibility for certain residence halls is based upon your freshman status, gender, and any Living-Learning Community (LLC) participation. For example, Bryant Hall only houses male students in the College of Engineering while Honors Housing is for students admitted to the Honors College. Other LLCs are connected to other residence halls. Rates differ for each residence hall, so please review the projected housing rates as you consider your choices. We provide updated fall rates in early summer.

What is a Living-Learning Community?

Living-Learning Communities (LLC) connect a student’s academic interests with their living environment, providing a supportive environment in which residents have a shared college, major, or academic program. UA offers many different LLCs with varying requirements for admission and expectations for participants. Some LLCs require application and acceptance into the program before HRC staff assigns participants rooms.

What is Honors Housing?

UA offers Honors Housing (located in Ridgecrest North, South and West, and Blount) to students in the Honors College, but it is not required or guaranteed.  Faculty-in-Residence (FIR) live in Honors Housing and interact with residents. Staff develop programs for Honors Housing with students’ interests and needs in mind. Interested students can select space there, or receive assignment to Honors Housing, as space permits. Honors Housing residents cannot pull in non-Honors College students as roommates.

Housing after Freshman Year

Are students guaranteed housing after their freshman year?

Housing availability for returning students and incoming transfer students varies each year. More information regarding recontracting will be sent to students later in the fall. To qualify for housing, pay attention to all HRC emails sent to your Crimson email and meet all application deadlines.

Contract Release Process

What if I apply for housing and decide not to attend UA?

If you decide not to attend UA, request a release from your contract with HRC by May 1, 2022, to receive a full refund of your $165 prepayment. Students who request a contract release from their housing between May 2 and June 1 receive a refund of $100. To submit a contract release request, complete the form in the myhousing portal. The refundable prepayment allows you to maximize your housing choices by applying earlier, even if unsure of your final school selection. To ensure you receive a refund, if eligible, request a contract release with HRC and not just Undergraduate Admissions. After the release deadline, we release you from your housing contract if you decide not to attend UA or receive an exemption. We will not approve requests for release in order to live in a sorority or fraternity housing or an off-campus apartment.

General Questions



Why should I join the Honors College? What are the benefits?

The Honors College works together with the academic colleges to provide an environment where students can find their place, become engaged and ultimately leave their mark at UA and the greater community.

The Honors College is home to an engaged and diverse community of transdisciplinary scholars, transcending the boundaries of disciplinary perspectives for a holistic approach to solving the very complex issues we face today and will face tomorrow.

Through the Honors College, students will have access to smaller and unique class options, a dedicated Honors residential community, eight signature and thematic programs, faculty-led study abroad experiences, Honors College scholarships for current UA students and dedicated Honors College Faculty, Staff and Advisors.


How do I choose a major in the Honors College?

There are no majors housed within the Honors College. Think of the Honors College as a supplemental enhancement to your educational experience. In fact, our students represent almost every major on campus, from engineering to fashion design.


How do I complete the graduation requirements of the Honors College?

All Honors College students must maintain a 3.5* UA GPA to graduate with the Honors College designation. Your transcript will indicate an Honors College designation upon successful completion of the Honors College requirements, which includes at least 18 hours of Honors courses. You will also receive an Honors cord and an Honors certificate of completion in addition to your diploma.

* Students with a 2019 catalog year or earlier must maintain a 3.3 overall GPA. 3.5 UA GPA for students on a 2020 catalog year forward.

Make sure to check out the Honors College Requirements for more specific requirements.


When can I register for classes?

Incoming first-year and transfer students will register at their Bama Bound orientation session. Current UA students will register according to the registration dates and times published by the Office of the University Registrar.

Summer and Fall registration usually opens in March while Spring registration normally opens in October.


What is Honors College Assembly (HCA) and how do I join?

As a member of The University of Alabama Honors College, you are a member of our Assembly. The Honors College Assembly provides numerous opportunities for students to participate in the non-academic programming of the Honors College.


Academics Questions



My department lists some classes as “Honors.” What does that mean?

Departmental honors courses are offered through the department and college in which the course is based (for example, the Biology Department in The College of Arts and Sciences). Departmental honors courses are on average smaller in enrollment than their non-Honors counterparts, will be limited to only Honors students and will feature top-flight faculty members. Honors students may opt to take departmental honors courses, but are not required to take the Honors sections of courses. Departmental honors courses count as Honors Elective credit.


How do I apply for Honors College graduation?

To apply for Honors College graduation consideration, a student must first complete The University of Alabama’s graduation application. The Honors College graduation application is free and may be found under the Academics tab of your myBama account (within the “Honors College” block). *Students may only apply for the term in which they will receive their UA degree.

Please check out the Commencement website for information about the UA graduation application and commencement programs each semester.


When should I apply for Honors College graduation?

The Honors College graduation application is open during these timeframes:

  • Students graduating in May – January through May
  • Students graduating in August – May through August
  • Students graduating in December – August through December

Watch the Honors College newsletter and social media for detailed information and reminders about when and how to apply for Honors College graduation!


Admissions Questions



What are the qualifications for being admitted to the Honors College?

Entering freshmen with composite ACT scores of at least 30 or composite SAT scores of at least 1360 and at least a 3.5 high school GPA are invited to apply to the Honors College. For in-state students with a 28 ACT or SAT equivalent (or higher) they may be admitted with a counselor letter of recommendation or documentation stating that they are in the top 5% of their high school class.

Upon receipt of their Honors College freshmen applications, all National Merit Finalists and National Hispanic Recognition Scholars are admitted automatically (but they must submit the Honors application). Students will be notified of their acceptance by e-mail.

Admission to the Randall Research Scholars Program and the University Fellows Experience is a more involved admissions process reserved for incoming freshmen.


What if I don’t qualify for the Honors College right now? Can I be admitted later?

Yes! Current UA students with a minimum overall 3.5 GPA and at least 12 hours of UA coursework will be accepted into the Honors College upon submission of an application. All students who apply with greater than 25 hours should touch base with an Honors College advisor prior to finalizing their admissions into the Honors College. Students will be notified of their acceptance by email.


Advising Questions



How can I schedule an appointment with an Honors College academic advisor?

There are three options to make an appointment to see your Honors College advisor:

  • Use our Ask an Honors Advisor form,
  • Reach out to us via phone, 205-348-5500 or
  • Email [email protected] to schedule an advising appointment.
    • Be sure to mention that you wish to schedule an advising appointment in your message.

Regardless of how you decide to make an appointment, you will need to provide the following information:

  • first and last name,
  • CWID,
  • phone number,
  • why you are requesting an appointment,
  • your availability.

Providing this information helps us prepare for our meeting. If you send an email appointment request, please allow up to two business days for a response.

Please note we do not offer same day advising appointments or walk-ins.


What are the reasons to see an Honors advisor?

Advisors play an active role in helping students reach their personal, professional and academic goals. We help students define their goals, assist with class selection, ensure all Honors College requirements are being met and appropriate progress is being made, help interpret policies and procedures and connect you with campus resources.


Is Honors College advising mandatory?

No, Honors advising is not mandatory. However, your Honors College advisor is here to help you whenever you need it. You can make an appointment to see us each semester before class registration to talk about honors requirements or to ask us questions throughout the semester about classes, resources and ways to get plugged in to the Honors College. We are here to help all year long so come and see us.


When should I meet with an Honors College advisor?

Honors College advisors are available to meet throughout the academic year. If you are preparing for upcoming class registration, we recommend meeting with your home college major advisor first. Then, come meet with an Honors College advisor to discuss the Honors portion of your plan of study.

Be proactive in scheduling advising appointments. Honors College advisors may have less availability during peak advising and registration periods (e.g. March/April and October/November).


Where do I go for career advising?

While our advisors can provide some general professional guidance, the best resource to utilize is the Career Center. You can contact the Career Center. You can contact the Career Center by emailing [email protected], calling 205-348-5848 or by stopping by their office located at 3400 Ferguson Student Center.


How do I use Degree Works?

DegreeWorks is The University of Alabama’s degree audit system, and you will use it throughout your entire undergraduate career. The Office of the University Registrar has a page with tutorials and FAQs regarding Degree Works.


How do I determine my student classification?

Classification Qualification

  • Freshman: 0 – 30 hours
  • Sophomore: 31 – 60 hours
  • Junior: 61 – 90 hours
  • Senior: 91+ hours
  • Post-graduate: any student who has completed an undergraduate degree and is taking courses towards another undergraduate degree or as a non-degree seeking student.

You can check your classification by looking in Degree Works and finding your “Classification” on the left-hand side.


How do I drop a class?

You can drop a class without a grade of “W” (withdrawal) during the first week of classes.
Before dropping a class, we strongly encourage you to speak to your home college major advisor. If, after meeting with your advisor, you feel dropping a course is the best option, follow these steps:

  1. Go to myBama.
  2. Click the “Add/Drop Classes” link on the Student tab.
  3. Click on “Drop/Delete” from the dropdown menu next to the class you intend to drop.
  4. Click “Submit.”

A grade of “W” will be issued for the dropped course if dropped within the first ten (10) weeks of the semester. After the first 10 weeks, you may NOT withdraw from a course. Please contact your home college major advisor for assistance.


What does it mean to be in good standing within the Honors College?

In the Honors College, a student is considered to be in “good standing” if they maintain a UA GPA of 3.5* or higher. Students who remain in the Honors College below a 3.5* UA GPA are not considered to be in good standing and may be placed on Honors College probation and/or suspension. Students who are suspended from the Honors College will be automaticall reinstated once their UA GPA increases to/above the 3.5 UA GPA threshold.

*Students with a 2019 catalog year or earlier must maintain a 3.3 overall GPA. 3.5 UA GPA for students on a 2020 catalog year forward.

Please be aware that The University of Alabama’s academic standing policy differs from that of the Honors College.


How do I withdraw from the Honors College?

If you are thinking about withdrawing from the Honors College, we encourage you to consider meeting with an Honors College advisor first.

If you are certain you want to withdraw from the Honors College, email [email protected] with your full name, CWID and a statement requesting withdrawal.

Living on campus allows students to interact with a diverse community of people and helps make the transition to college easier. UA houses 8,400 students in 34 residence halls. The Honors Community is located in Ridgecrest North, South, and West. Honors students are encouraged to consider living in Honors Housing, but it is not a requirement for participation in The Honors College. Housing priority is based on the date of the housing application. The earlier a student submits the housing application, the more housing options will be available to select during online room selection in the spring.

The online housing application for freshmen typically becomes available October 1 of each year for the following fall. To learn more about dates and residence halls, visit the Housing and Residential Communities website: https://housing.sa.ua.edu/.

The Honors Connections Living Learning Community in Ridgecrest West is a smaller, intentional community within Honors Housing, created to aid first year students’ transitions into a collegiate environment. The LLC is a discovery-based partnership where first year Honors College students live and learn in community with each other and Honors College sophomores, juniors, and seniors who serve as peer mentors.  Incoming freshmen living in the LLC will enroll in UH 100: Honors Connections, a class that introduces first-year students to the UA Honors College experience. The aim of this course is to aid each student in finding and examining their place within the Honors College, the University of Alabama and the greater community. Students will learn and practice the key concepts of engaged scholarship, including critical and creative thinking, ethical and reasoned dialogue, and collaborative and inclusive leadership. Students will gain a practical understanding of the Honors College and their role within it, while also building relationships that foster continued participation in the kinship of scholars.

UA faculty alongside Honors College professional staff facilitate the LLC and the corresponding UH 100 course. Goals for each student in the LLC include: fostering a sense of community among students living in the LLC; forging lasting relationships between first year and upperclass students; and connecting first year students to the vast resources that can help them succeed in both the Honors College and Housing and Residential Communities.

The Honors Connection LLC also has a dedicated Faculty-in-Residence.

Public University Honors

Of course, parents and prospective students are concerned about the honors curriculum, the quality of instruction, and the success rate of graduates—but let’s don’t forget that at the end of the day, literally, what may matter most is where we go to rest, or study, or…eat.

As a general rule, honors programs and colleges assign honors students to the best residence halls or dorms on campus. Honors colleges might offer an advantage, versus honors programs, in some cases because the colleges are often established or expanded in accordance with the principle that honors students are a group apart that will benefit from housing that is quieter, more centrally located, or more open to living/learning opportunities.

Although we do not plan to discuss the residence halls in alphabetical order according to the name of the universities of which they are a part, the first honors residences we will mention are those at the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa.

The Honors College living options are in Riverside West, Lakeside West, Ridgecrest North and Ridgecrest West. “These coed living-learning facilities form the center of the University’s tightly-knit honors community. Because of the demand for Honors Housing, only incoming Honors College freshmen and current residents of Honors Housing can be accommodated. Space does not permit Honors College participants living in other residence halls to move to Honors Housing. For more information, please visit honors.ua.edu.”

These dorms are located in the same general area. Riverside stands out because the pool and clubhouse that serves all the honors halls are located there. Another important feature of the honors dorms is there location near Lakeside Dining, which is said to have the best food on campus. The honors quarters offer a choice of (relatively) spacious rooms: singles, or two and four room suites. Some of these have shared kitchen facilities and a shared and furnished living/dining room.

Honors halls are not the closest residences to the center of the UA campus, but they are only about 10 minutes away from the heart of the campus, and are they quite close to the “Ferg,” the university’s student center. Some students believe that Lakeside/Ridgecrest are the best honors dorms because they have full community kitchens, especially important to students who enjoy the chance to cook some of their own meals.

Another great feature of UA residence halls is that the honors dorms are not the only excellent dorms on campus. Overall, UA housing is far above average, and in some cases is outstanding.
