Admission Process & Requirements
What is Seamless Admission?
Seamless Admission is a one-year, invitation only program that is specifically designed for students who narrowly missed the traditional admission requirements at Auburn. The program allows participants to enroll and take their first-year, core courses as an Auburn Montgomery student on either the AUM or Auburn campus (test score dependent). Once participants complete 30 hours of core coursework in the program and achieve a GPA of at least 2.5, they are guaranteed admission to Auburn as a sophomore. Should participants choose a major that has requirements above and beyond Auburn's general standards, they must also meet those requirements. Students who do not satisfy these requirements will be able to remain AUM students and will be encouraged to apply for admission to Auburn at a later date.
Who is Eligible?
Seamless is designed to allow students who were not admitted for their first year at Auburn an alternate pathway to fulfill their goal of earning an Auburn University degree.
To be eligible for the program, you must meet the following admission criteria:
- A composite score of 18 on the ACT or 860 on the SAT
- A GPA of at least 2.3
- A completed new freshman application for admission at Auburn
- To be eligible for classes on the AU campus, you must have ACT sub scores of 18 in English and 20 in Math or SAT sub scores of 450 in Verbal and 540 in Math.
How does the Admission Process Work?
Invitations are mailed to all students meeting minimum eligibility requirements for the program starting mid-November. Invited students indicate their interest in Seamless Admission through an online interest form. After a student officially indicates interest, Auburn University forwards the student’s application and educational information to Auburn University at Montgomery (AUM). In February, Seamless Admission sends, electronically and by regular mail, interested students more information about the program including how to reserve a space on the campus of your choice.
Invited students are not officially accepted into the program until they have paid a confirmation deposit to reserve their space. Since spaces in this very popular program are limited, students are urged to submit their interest and reserve their space as early as possible. The confirmation deposit will be accepted until June 1 or until the program is full (whichever date comes first).
If you are denied admission to Auburn University on February 15th or after, all the spots in the Seamless Admission program will NOT be taken by people who were denied admission before you in November and December. This is because invitations are mailed out on a rolling basis starting in November and through early Spring as admission decisions are being made by Auburn University. The majority of AU decisions are made on November 15, December 15, and February 15. Seamless decisions happen later. As of mid- to late February, everyone who has received an invitation and has expressed interest in attending the Seamless program will be sent instructions on how to submit a confirmation deposit to secure a seat in the program. This allows everyone an equal chance to secure a spot in the program, regardless of what date you receive your invitation.
