After careful consideration, Bama Bound New Student Orientation will be a virtual event this year. We strongly encourage you to sign up for your preferred orientation session. With Bama Bound, you gain a better knowledge of UA, secure your classes and are ready to enroll with us this fall.
To register for Bama Bound, login to mybama.ua.edu and select Orientation Registration (within the Home tab and the Currently on myBama section). You will need a valid credit card or a blank/voided check to complete the payment portion of the registration process.
Once you’re registered for a Bama Bound session, here are your next steps to take to cross the finish line to UA student:
Complete your Bama Bound Online Orientation Modules
You will be given access to the Bama Bound Online Orientation modules 7 days prior to your session date. These modules include important campus resources, processes to complete as a new UA student.
Complete your Academic Area’s Orientation Module
Once you’ve completed your Bama Bound Modules, you will be added to your Colleges/School/Center’s modules. These modules provide more information about your area of study, how to get involved and prepare you for academic advising.
You must complete these modules by 12:00 p.m. CST the day prior to your Bama Bound Session to meet with an adviser and register for your first semester of classes. Students who do not complete their modules will be required to register for a new Bama Bound Orientation date.
Once you have completed your online orientation modules, you will work with your academic department to complete advising and register for your courses.
Summer/Fall Course Registration
You will register for your courses during your scheduled orientation. For a two-day session, registration is the morning of Day 2.
