International Students

AUM Global Initiatives

Auburn University at Montgomery’s Office of Global Initiatives welcomes all international students. Our staff is dedicated to serve international students as they transition to American life and become acquainted with various social, cultural and academic differences they may incur. We believe these efforts will help create a world-class educational experience for our international students.

Every year, AUM students, faculty and staff celebrate International Education Week, an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education promotes programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attracts future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.

AUM is a close-knit and inclusive community. We have a relatively small student body (around 7,000), so you won’t get lost in a crowd. Our beautiful campus is an excellent environment for learning, our faculty is world-class, and the emphasis on small class sizes means that you’ll get a more hands-on, personalized college experience. We sincerely hope you decide to join the hundreds of other international students from over 45 countries who have chosen Auburn University at Montgomery. Please contact any of our staff, below, with questions.

Meanwhile, please download our English-language brochure or learn more about becoming an AUM international student.

More Information

International students apply to AUM with varying levels of competency in the English language, and the Office of Global Initiatives helps guide you through the process of improving your English skills. To be admitted to AUM, students need a score of 5.5 on the IOS (an English proficiency test). However, with a score of 5, you can enter a pathway program where you can take half ESL classes and half academic classes until you make the appropriate IOS score. If you initially score less than 5, you would only be able to take ESL classes and begin academic classes when you retake the IOS and show the desired improvement. Please see more information on English as a Second Language (ESL).

English Proficiency Requirements

The  Office of Global Initiatives plans programming and events throughout the year. Each November, AUM students, faculty and staff celebrate International Education Week, an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education promotes programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attracts future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.

Each day of International Education Week includes an event in which various departments around campus participate. Examples include:

  • Art Around the World, a fun, hands-on experience that celebrates the visual arts from various cultures.
  • Cricket tournaments (which are quite rare in this part of the U.S.!)
  • International dinners
  • International tea and coffee hours

As a part of International Education Week, the Office of Global Initiatives hosts events such as Art Around the World, a fun, hands-on experience that celebrates the visual arts from various cultures.
