    If you are applying for the degree program in partnership between the University of West Alabama and the Alabama Fire College, please choose the Technology – Bachelor of Science option on the application.

    The University of West Alabama and the Alabama Fire College are partners to provide firefighters and emergency medical services personnel college credit for training completed at the Fire College toward a bachelor of science in technology degree from UWA. This degree is offered both on–campus and online.

    The first of its type in Alabama, this agreement allows students who obtain specialized training from the Alabama Fire College in fire services and EMS to transfer 32 to 42 hours of credit toward the B.S. in Technology degree program at the University of West Alabama.

    Prospective students also can submit academic credit for consideration from an accredited two-year fire services or emergency medical services program.

    Prospective students from high school through experienced fire or emergency services personnel will be able to earn a degree in order to enhance their career opportunities and increase their compensation.

    Associate and Master’s degrees are planned for the future.
