Office of Central Advising
Taylor Center 125
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, he/she 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. These advisors are located in various offices across campus. If you are not sure who your advisor is or how to get in touch with him/her, please contact us.

Declared Major Advising
If you are fully admitted to AUM and have declared a major, you are advised in the college or department in which the major falls. Students with less than 59 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. Please remember:
Undeclared Major Advising
As an Undeclared Student, you have several resources available to help you determine a major:
Pre-professional Program Advising
Pre-professional curricula (e.g., pre-medicine, pre-pharmacy, pre-law) are not majors. If you are completing one of these curricula, you will be required to declare a specific major (Biology, Chemistry, Political Science, etc.). You will need advising in your pre-professional curriculum and in your major 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.
Bridge Program Advising
If you have been admitted to the Bridge program at AUM, you are advised by a member of the Bridge program staff. Learn more about the Bridge program
Academic advising assists students in realizing his/her educational goals and objectives. Advisors use their expertise to help students meet the academic requirements of the major program.
The core mission of the College of Education advising office is to assist students from admission to graduation. Students have the opportunity to meet with advisors regularly to ask questions and seek guidance.
Meeting with an academic advisor at least once a semester is critical to your success. It’s also a great time to get help with other issues that may affect your academic progress.
Academic advising helps students understand the general education and graduation requirements, select and pursue a course of study, create a plan to graduation and solve academic problems.
