Even if you do not fully meet all the requirements for admission to AUM, you still may find a home here through our Bridge Program. This program is designed for students who meet specific academic criteria in order to enroll them in courses structured to prepare them for full admission. The Bridge Program connects you with campus resources so that you can thrive at AUM.
If you qualify, our Bridge Program will provide you with extra academic support for one semester prior to gaining full admission to AUM. During the Bridge semester, you will be enrolled in courses designed specifically for “bridging the gap” to a continued and successful college career.

The Bridge Program is one semester, and can begin Fall, Spring, or Summer semester. Bridge students can enroll in College Success, Math, English and/or Wellness up to 13 credit hours.
To apply for the Bridge Program, follow these five easy steps.
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 Manager, Sheryl Kane, at [email protected] or 334-244-3473

Bridge students can enroll in College Success, Math, English and/or Wellness up to 13 credit hours. In order to focus on success in these subjects, Bridge students are not allowed to take additional courses during their Bridge semester.
There are no scholarships for the Bridge Program. However, students may apply for Financial Aid through the traditional FAFSA processes. FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
If you are starting the Bridge program in the summer term, you will need to complete two FAFSAs, one for the current academic year, to request aid for the summer, and a second one for the upcoming academic year, for fall and spring aid.
