Appointment times are as follows:

  • Feb. 4, 2012 – 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The UAB student volunteers will have workstations on UAB's campus in the Business-Engineering Complex computer labs, 1150 10th Ave. South. A registration desk will be located in the building's lobby.

This is the sixth year the United Way of Central Alabama and UAB have partnered on the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program. VITA gives UAB student volunteers the opportunity to receive real-world experience while providing a valuable service to the Birmingham community.
