Auburn University at Montgomery is proud to serve the men and women who serve our nation in the armed forces.

In addition to helping you navigate military education benefits, federal scholarships and the Armed Forces Tuition Assistance program, AUM offers several scholarships to military personnel, both past and present. Whether you are a new student, have some college credit already, or are seeking to change directions after the military, there may be a scholarship to fit you.

Most of AUM’s scholarships are automatically awarded–based on the student’s GPA and test scores–without the need for a separate application form. AUM offers scholarships to freshmen and for students transferring from accredited two-year community colleges in Alabama. Participants in AUM’s Army ROTC program may also be eligible for scholarship opportunities ranging from two to four years.

Academic Plan of Study: If you are receiving VA benefits, you are required to provide the Veteran Services Office with an Academic Plan of Study checksheet. Your academic advisor will provide this form and work with you in developing your plan. Once you have completed all necessary forms, it takes 6-8 weeks for the Veterans Administration’s Regional Office (VARO) to finish processing your claim.

Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy: As a VA benefit recipient, you are required to make satisfactory academic progress by maintaining a minimum overall 2.0 GPA on hours attempted at AUM. This measure generally becomes effective when you have attempted 24 hours at AUM. If you fail to maintain the required GPA, you will have your VA benefits terminated.

Registration Cancellation Policy: The AUM Registration Cancellation Policy requires that you pay tuition and fees by the registration cancellation deadline. We will permit re-registration only if you make payments or payment arrangements at the time of registration. If you are awarded financial aid for the semester at issue, you will not be subject to cancellation for that portion of fees covered by financial aid. However, veteran benefits, other than Chapter 31 VA Vocational Rehabilitation and Post 9/11 Chapter 33, are not considered financial aid for this payment policy, so you are encouraged to make payments or payment arrangements to prevent course cancellation.
