    Hi, I found out that living in a dorm is required for freshman year unless you submit the exemption form. The room fee is around $9000 per year and I was wondering whether it’s fairly cheaper than living off the campus. Also if you are able to live off the campus, does the board fee (around $4000) is automatically excluded?
    Thank you for the information!

      Hey Jenny! I don’t know much information about the exemption form. The best way to find out if you can live off campus is calling University of Alabama’s office. In my opinion, I don’t think that it would be cheaper to live off-campus because the room fee is including all the utilities (electricity, water, trash, etc.) and other expenses (internet, cable, etc.) I also think that you should live on campus because it will become unforgettable memories. I don’t know the answers to your questions, but the best way to find out is to call UA’s office!

I would like to seek your support to study in the state to help me accomplish my dream and ambition in life.

    • lh1999 says:

      To get the full tuition scholarships, you would need to score 1490 on the SAT. So, I would recommend you to study hard for the SAT. If you don’t meet that goal, there are other universities that will offer full tuition scholarships to students with lower scores.
