IMPORTANT NEWS FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH ALABAMA:

  • We have just launched a link on our website www.una.edu/youruna.  This link includes many free resources and videos that you and your students may find useful.  Most importantly (on the main page of the link) you will see that we are offering six different courses during the May Intersession (May 11-29) for $100 to students in the Class of 2020 and 2021.  The courses are general studies courses and include:  COM 201 (Speech), PY 201 (Psychology), AR 170 (Art Appreciation), HI 201 (US History), PS 241 (Political Science), MU 222 (Music Appreciation).  Books/resources for these courses will also be free or deeply discounted.  Seats are VERY limited and available on a first come, first served basis but preference will be given to those that have already been admitted for the Fall of 2020.  J  Each student is limited to one course because these courses are pretty intense due to the 2-week class period.  Students can visit that link to apply and submit their Early College form.  All details are included there. 

 

  • While on the subject of Early College courses, we are going to allow the Class of 2020 to continue taking up to two EC courses during the Summer Term at the discounted $375 rate (per course)!  Students are not typically allowed to participate in the EC program once they graduate so I would encourage students to take advantage of this program if they are interested!  All information about the Early College program can be found at www.una.edu/earlycollege

 

  • BIG NEWS!!!..We have extended our Excellence Scholarship deadline to May 1!  So if you have students that are still interested in attending in the Fall of 2020, please encourage them to apply!  They can do this at www.una.edu/apply

 

  • We are currently offering Zoom campus visits!  If your students would like to meet with an Admissions Counselor and get some more information about UNA, encourage them to visit www.una.edu/visit and schedule the day and time that works best for them!
