Advising

Declared Major Advising

Auburn Montgomery requires all students to seek the guidance of an academic advisor before registering for courses. Students are responsible to meet with their assigned academic advisor prior to course registration for guidance in selecting courses that comply with their specific program/major requirements. Once the advisor gives signed approval for courses, students can obtain personal identification numbers (PINs) that allows registration on AUM's online registration system.

Students who are fully admitted to Auburn Montgomery and have declared a major are advised in the School or department the major falls:

College of Business Advising

College of Education Advising

College of Public Policy and Justice Advising

College of Nursing and Health Sciences Advising

College of Arts and Sciences Advising

Pre-professional Program Advising Pre-professional curricula (e.g., pre-medicine, pre-pharmacy, pre-law) are not majors. Students completing one of these curricula will be required to declare a separate major (Biology, Chemistry, Political Science, etc.). Such students will need advising in their pre-professional curriculum and in their major.

Bridge Program Student Advising

All students interested in our Bridge program must apply for regular admission to AUM. AUM will admit students into our Bridge program based on qualifications

All Bridge program students must sign a Bridge Program Contract in order to complete the admission process and enroll in classes. The terms of the Bridge Program Contract restrict students from utilizing AUM's grade adjustment policy and from taking courses as a transient/cross enrollment student at another institution (ROTC cross-enrollment at Alabama State University is an exception) until they obtain full admission. The terms of the Contract also provide each student with the requirements needed to fulfill the program, allowing students to then update their status to full admission.

Additional contract requirements do apply. For more information on the Bridge Program or the additional contract requirements, please contact our Bridge Program Coordinator, Sissy Speirs, at 334-244-3473 or email l speirs@aum.edu.
