Enrollment Welcome

The University of Alabama is pleased to offer you the BAMA Plan payment option, administered by Sallie Mae®.

This interest free payment plan lets you:

  • Pay the basic annual University on campus costs in monthly installments rather than a lump sum.
  • No Interest Payments - The tuition payment plan is interest free. It can be used on its own or in addition to loans.
  • Access your personal BAMA Plan account and knowledgeable Sallie Mae specialists.
  • Pay only an annual non-refundable application fee, no interest charges.
You can use the BAMA Plan to pay for all or part of the tuition, course fees (if applicable), Dining Dollars, residence hall room charges (includes rent, utilities, basic cable television, high speed internet, and local phone service), and campus meal plan (less financial aid, loans, and scholarships) for the fall and spring semesters.
