Bama Bound Checklist

The following tasks will need to be completed before you arrive for your Bama Bound Orientation:

Register for Bama Bound.

Bama Bound for students entering in summer and fall terms are held in May, June, July and August. Please check to be sure the Bama Bound session you wish to attend is still open before you book travel accommodations.

Submit the required immunization form online to the Student Health Center.

The Student Health Center requires proof of your immunization record against childhood diseases such as measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) and tuberculosis (TB). Immunization information is required for all students before the beginning of classes. Visit shc.ua.edu/immunizations for more information about obtaining and submitting this information to the Student Health Center.

**Forms can only be submitted through the student’s myBama. Please review this process at shc.ua.edu/immunizations.

Take your placement assessments.

The University of Alabama seeks to maximize your success as a student by taking steps toward ensuring your proper course placement.

Know your Campus Wide Identification Number (CWID).

Upon your admission, you should have received a letter from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions with your CWID. You will use your CWID for a variety of purposes at Bama Bound. Your CWID can always be found in your myBama. Click More in the right corner then click on DegreeWorks.

Prepare for academic advising.

Prepare for your academic advising session by reviewing the undergraduate catalog. Begin organizing your ideas for conversation with your advisor at Bama Bound. Exploring course options early improves your advising experience.

Submit your ACT Card photo online.

Your ACT Card is your official student ID for The University of Alabama. By using online photo submission you can choose the photo you want and have your card ready when you arrive at Bama Bound. Photos can be submitted after you register for Bama Bound but no later than one day prior to your session.

Once your photo is approved and you’ve set up DUO on your personal device (not your guardian’s), you can add your ACT Card to your iPhone and Apple Watch devices. This is an official mobile credential and can be used just like a physical card. The earlier you submit your photo, the earlier you can put your ACT Card in Apple Wallet!

Confirm your scholarship and financial aid packages.

To make your orientation visit as productive as possible, confirm your financial aid and/or scholarship packages before arriving. If you received a scholarship from an organization outside of The University of Alabama, the organization needs to contact Student Financial Aid.

Download the Bama Bound App.

The Bama Bound app lets you schedule reminders, locate campus resources, keep track of participants in the Capstone Connections Information Fair and access an interactive map to help you get around UA!
