What Students Are Saying

3.75 Average Rating
Being that most students attending UAH are engineering or medical major students, there are going to be challenging courses to complete. Endurance and professionalism are the keys to success the first two years of college while getting the preliminary foundation classes out of the way. The student help center is a great resource to find tutoring and academic help and the advanced students are often paired up with lower class students who may be struggling with a course that the senior student has already passed. Challenging? Yes. Achievable? Definitely!

The academics at the University of Alabama in Huntsville are pretty challenging, but not so much that they would run you off from the school. The instructors make sure that they explain what they expect from you in the course, which makes it easier to understand what lies ahead of you. Some of the instructors scale their grades at the end of the semester if they feel that their course was too harsh on the students.
Amy from Cullman, AL
Engineering is pretty hard. The other classes require effort, but if you do what the professors say you need to do to pass the class then you will.
Anonymous from Huntsville, AL
A very hard school, but definitely worth it in the end. Will enter the real world knowing more than just a subject.
Britt from Decatur, AL
This has been academic programs you can choice from. Engineering is what they are famous for. Being so close to a military base this school has fantastic opportunities to help you succeed. They are famous for Nursing and Business as well. It is a great thing to have this school on your resume. Very Diverse school and excellent opportunity!
Tiffany from Grant, AL
The classes are challenging but faculty and students are always willing to help.
Rachael from Athens, AL
This University wants you to succeed, but they don't just hand out A's. Your professors expect you to earn your grade, and earning an A or even a B can take a lot of work. Having said that, I have never met a more intelligent body of students.
Candace from Madison, AL
this school is not easy especially if you are a science or math major. teachers provide challenges but are always willing to help along the way. there are tutors for those subjects you just can't get.
