What if my student doesn’t meet the admissions criteria?
The Office of Admissions encourages all students to apply for admission to the University. If a student does not meet the current admissions criteria, the student will be allowed to submit a supplemental admissions application that will be reviewed by the Admissions Appeal Committee. This application will allow the student to communicate why they think they will be successful at the University of Montevallo. Letters of recommendation are also encouraged in support of the supplemental application.
Are there leadership based scholarships, and what about departmental scholarships?
