January 2019

Dear Class of 2022:

On behalf of our faculty, staff, students and alumni, welcome to The University of Alabama family. We want the next four years to be a wonderful time of positive growth intellectually, spiritually and socially for you.

Heading off to college is an exciting time. Over the course of your college career, you will grow and change in large part based on personal interactions and the environment in which you live. We offer numerous programs and services to assist students in the transition to college. One of these programs is AlphaPoint, a web-based education program that is required of all incoming students. It is one way the University fulfills federal requirements from the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Justice.

The AlphaPoint program educates students in five specific areas before they arrive on campus — community, balance, wellness, healthy relationships, and diversity and inclusion. These programs have been helpful to many college students seeking ways to balance their new freedom in living away from home with their need to establish a healthy lifestyle as a young adult.

Every incoming student is required to take the AlphaPoint course. You will receive an email to your UA email address on Jan. 7, 2019 with specific directions for logging on to the course through myBama. This will need to be completed prior to Feb. 1, 2019.

If you have any questions about the program, or if you have any problems accessing the course, please reference our website at alphapoint.sl.ua.edu.

Sincerely,

Stuart R. Bell
President
