New Student Orientation will help you to develop the skills to meet the challenges of college. Because you probably have many questions about AUM and college life in general, we have planned an orientation program especially for you. At orientation you can—
- Confirm your class schedule or register for classes.
- Learn more about student services and activities.
- Learn about academic support services and campus life.
- Take campus tours.
- Meet upper-class students who will assist you in beginning your college experience.
All first-time freshmen and transfer students are required to attend. All new students will be charged a $125 non-refundable fee. This fee will automatically be added to your student account and added to your first tuition bill in August. All Math and English Placement testing should be taken the week before your scheduled orientation. However, the Math Placement Test Center will be on from 3-5 p.m. during Orientation.
Orientation Check-In will be held from
8 - 9:00 a.m.
in Taylor Center 230
The support and understanding of family members can make a tremendous difference in your college experience and your success as a student. We strongly encourage your parents or other family members to attend with you. You will attend some activities together, but there will also be programs specifically designed to address their questions or concerns. There is a two guest limit per student.
