Student Orientation

It is our goal in the Office of Orientation and Transitions to provide you with a comprehensive introduction to the AUM community by providing comprehensive and diverse programs to prepare you for academic success and campus engagement. By participating in the orientation and transitions programs, you will be equipped with the tools you need to be successful at AUM.

Student orientation is a great opportunity for you to learn about AUM's programs, services, traditions, register for classes, and connect with your fellow classmates.

At orientation you can -- 

  • Register for classes
  • Learn about our academic support services
  • Learn how to get involved with our campus life
  • Participate in a campus tour
  • Meet students who will assist you in beginning your college experience
