First year students at the University of Alabama-Birmingham may be eligible for an IB scholarship of $1,000 to be converted to a scholarship of $2,500 upon certified completion of the full IB Diploma. To be considered, students must submit a separate application, after being admitted to UAB, by March 1. IB Diploma students can also earn up to 1.5 years of college credit and sophomore standing upon entrance.
Additionally, IB students can join the Honors College to continue learning in an environment similar to the one fostered by the IB.
