UA Writing Center
The University of Alabama's Writing Center seeks to provide professional writing tutoring to all UA students, graduate and undergraduate. Assistance can be offered in both general writing skills and more discipline-specific forms of writing at any stage of the writing process. The Writing Center also maintains a collection of writing sources in print and electronic form for student use and can help review the requirements of writing assignments, focus ideas and develop strong arguments, write with sources and format work, write in subject areas outside of English and the humanities, and address problems with punctuation, grammar, and spelling.

MyBama is an interactive Web site for University of Alabama students, faculty, and staff. MyBama provides access to e-mail, personal calendars, course information, campus news and more, all the time, from anywhere in the world. A student may allow a parent or other individual to view his or her financial student account and to conduct business (i.e., make a payment, elect deferment plan option, confirm the schedule) on the student's behalf. The student will assign a user ID and password, through his/her myBama account, to allow this access and will need to give this information to the individual(s) authorized by the student. Students will need to go to myBama, click on the Student tab, and under Banner Self-Services, Student Services, click on the Student Receivables channel. Choose Create/Change a Parent Guest Account and complete the information. If a parent provides an e-mail address(es) in conjunction with the Parent/Guest Account, these e-mail addresses will also receive notices and reminders of billing dates and deadlines. helpdesk.ua.edu
