Campus Zoom Backgrounds
Campus is blossoming, the birds are chirping and the bricks wish you were here. We know you’re probably missing the beautiful campus views, so we’re bringing campus to you! Browse and download the virtual backgrounds we’ve created with you in mind at montevallo.edu/zoom.
We asked UM faculty and staff to submit their words of encouragement and support for students during this time and they showed up in a big way. (No surprise there.) Falcon family, we can do this together. Let’s finish this semester strong! Wherever you are, #YouBelongAtMontevallo. View video here.
COVID-19 Student Relief Fund
The COVID-19 Student Relief Fund provides limited emergency financial support to University of Montevallo students who are unable to meet essential expenses due to a temporary or unexpected hardship caused in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are All Counting on You: Census 2020
Make your voice heard in the 2020 Census. It’s a safe and secure way to obtain federal funding for our state’s future. This money means better health care, schools, roads, job opportunities and more.
Every 10 years, the U.S. Census is sent to every household in the country. The Census is a count of everyone residing in the U.S. The Census counts every person living in Alabama once, only once, and in the right place. It contains 10 simple questions and only takes six minutes to complete. Please complete the Census here.
Students are counted where they spend most of their time, which means that the majority of University of Montevallo students will be counted in our community. Per the Census Bureau’s residence criteria, Montevallo students temporarily living away from campus due to the COVID-19 pandemic should still be counted for the state of Alabama.
Learn more at montevallo.edu/2020-census.
Special Summer 2020 Tuition Rates
Special summer tuition rates are available for undergraduate courses during May, Summer I and Summer II terms. Learn more at montevallo.edu/summer-classes.
If a student received financial aid for the 2019-2020 academic year, they could also be eligible for summer. Please note, in most cases, the student must take six or more credit hours during the summer term(s) to receive aid, and federal aid is determined based on each individual student’s eligibility.
Students should contact the UM Student Aid Office at 205-665-6050 if they have any questions once they have received their summer financial aid offer notification. The Student Aid Office is located on the first floor of Palmer Hall.
The Harbert Writing Center is Still Open Online
All Harbert Writing Center writing consultations will be online for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester. Just visit montevallo.mywconline.com to set up your account and schedule your appointment with any of our consultants. Please email Dr. Cynthia Mwenja at email@example.com if you have any questions.
