Academic advisors serve an important role in helping students get registered for classes and guiding them along their educational journeys. Not only will your advisor assist you in selecting the classes you need for graduation, they can also serve as a resource to you for any questions you may have during your time at AUM.
Upon admission to AUM, you are assigned an advisor based upon your major. While these advisors are located in various offices across campus, the Office of Central Advising is your go-to location for your basic advising needs. All students are welcome to stop by the Office of Central Advising in Taylor 125 at any time for assistance. You may also call the office at 334-244-3969 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We require that you meet with your academic advisor before you are allowed to register for classes. It is important that you select courses that comply with your specific program/major requirements, and your advisor will want to talk to you about your overall academic progress. Once your advisor gives signed approval for courses, you obtain a personal identification number (PIN) that allows registration on AUM's online registration system. *Students should plan to meet with their advisor in person prior to each semester unless seeking a degree fully online.*
Please follow the links below to find your advisor:
If you have been admitted to the Bridge program at AUM, you are advised by a member of the Bridge program staff.
If you have been fully admitted to AUM, but have not declared a major of study, you are advised by the Undeclared Advisor in the Warhawk Academic Success Center.
If you are fully admitted to AUM and have declared a major, you are advised in the School or department in which the major falls. Students with less than 45 hours in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and the College of Science are initially advised in the Office of Central Advising before transitioning to a Faculty advisor.
Pre-professional Program Advising
If you are interested in preparing for professional fields such as medicine, pharmacy, or law, you are expected to declare a separate major while at AUM. Pre-medicine, pre-pharmacy, pre-physical therapy, pre-law etc., are not technically majors; rather, they are pre-professional curricula. If you complete a pre-professional curricula, you will be required to declare a separate major such as Biology, Chemistry, Political Science, etc. If you're preparing for a professional career, you will receive advising specifically for your pre-professional curriculum as well as your major degree to insure that you meet the requirements associated with your AUM degree plan as well as admissions criteria for your graduate or continued professional studies.
