I used to be an Auburn University student.BrightAccounting
I used to be an Auburn University student. Everyone was nice and things were handled very well. At UAB it has been nothing but problems, headaches, and stress. I'm an online student and they charge a $4000 online class fee for their business school. That's on top of the tuition. My advice would be to check every little detail you can think of or just go to another university.

The problem I have with UAB is notQuite BrightFinance
The problem I have with UAB is not the program material or the faculty, it's the customer service. I spend thousands of dollars a semester, and I can't get the simplest questions answered. If you try to call in, you're sent to a bulk voicemail; for which you will not receive a response. This university is making money hand over fist, but they refuse to hire the staff necessary to handle the workload. I would not choose UAB again, and I'm seriously considering transferring to another university. This is utterly ridiculous.

I'll go ahead and give you the honestQuite BrightAccounting
I'll go ahead and give you the honest truth. I'm from Alabama and I joined the military. I decided to go to UAB online. Each class costs around $2,000. I started to get to know some of my classmates, even add some on Facebook. I began to realize I, being a Caucasian female, was a minority. Then I realized 90% of people in my class HAD to be going there for free while I was paying $6k a semester. I always wondered why they didn't do military discounts. They simply can't afford it because they have to pay for all of these broke people with family on welfare. It's not fair at all to me. Another thing the teachers LOVE to do is make you work in groups. How in the world could a group project ever go right with everyone living in different states and most of them going here free?! I'll tell you can't! I was stuck doing a 5 person project pretty much by myself. I'm switching to Southern New Hampshire University and letting all of the broke family college students take over this wonderful school.
