Currently enrolled in the online BBA program & it has been a great college experience thus far. Wide variety of courses, professors are industry leaders as well as educators. Faculty and students are international and bring a wealth of knowledge to create a unique learning experience for all age groups.

The online programs allow great flexibility with work schedules. The University of North Alabama offers traditional, accelerated and hybrid courses to allow you to create a course schedule that works for you. Tuition costs for all online programs are at in-state tuition rates. UNA is a convenient and quality education for both traditional and non-traditional students. One of the best decisions I made in continuing my education!

Great atmosphere, great classes, and even better professors are just a few of the perks of attending the University of North Alabama (UNA). First off, the atmosphere at the University of North Alabama is unlike any other! Seeing as how the school is placed in a quaint little town like Florence, Alabama, everyone is so friendly and you feel right at home. Unlike bigger schools, UNA's professors are able to give students more one on one attention by offering smaller classes, and students feel free to engage more, thus building their success! There are many organizations on campus that adhere to everyone's interests. From being a dancer as a Lionette in the Pride of Dixie Marching Band, to joining the Student Public Relations organization, there are many opportunities for students to gain crucial experience that will build their resumes. I adore UNA, and wouldn't change a thing about it. Did I mention they have live lion mascots on campus?
By far, the main aspect of the University of North Alabama that I enjoyed was the student-teacher relationships. Class sizes are much smaller than at a major university; therefore, students are able to build stronger relationships with their teachers. This greatly benefited me because I developed a great relationship with one of my first college professors here, Dr. Hunt. Over my four years of undergrad, she assisted me in finding volunteer opportunities and even helped me get an internship in my desired work field and field of study. Being able to develop these relationships with our professors also assists us in learning how to effectively and confidently communicate with our superiors in different sectors, especially in the work sector.
