International student orientation is designed to assist you with the transition to the United States. You will learn about academics in the U.S., hear from professors, meet fellow students, and take tours of the campus and our home, Montgomery, Alabama.
The purpose of orientation is to provide a preview of Auburn University at Montgomery and register for classes.
Yes, Orientation is mandatory for all new degree-seeking students at AUM. You must attend an orientation session in order to register for classes. If you cannot attend Orientation due to an extenuating circumstance, we ask that you inform the Office of Orientation and Transitions. All students will be assessed the $125 Orientation Fee on their first tuition bill. The fee is not paid at or prior to orientation.
You are required to attend to get acclimated to campus as well as register for class.
While you can certainly register to attend Orientation and reserve your spot, you do have to be admitted to AUM prior to attending Orientation. The Office of Admissions can assist you with being admitted to AUM prior to your Orientation session, please call 334-244-3615 for admissions assistance. Students who are not admitted on the day of their scheduled Orientation will not be allowed to register for classes at Orientation.

We feel that it is important for you to feel as comfortable as possible; however, AUM Orientation is set up to cater to new students and their parents/guests. If a friend comes with you, they would partake in our parent/guest program while you attend the student program.
My friend and I are signed up for the same Orientation session. Can we be in the same group?
No. Orientation is designed to be a productive preview and registration experience, and you’re required to check in on time and attend all Orientation events. Orientation sessions will end as soon as your registration process has been completed after lunch.
Yes, you can change your major at Orientation, but it is preferred for you to change it prior to Orientation. If you need assistance, contact us at email@example.com
You will receive attention from faculty or academic advisors in your major area of study. Academic advisement will prepare you to choose courses and to create a class schedule that fits into your academic plan at AUM.
Orientation is meant to be an independent experience for students. It is important that you understand the requirements of your academic major since your success is ultimately up to you. For that reason, you will go to your academic advisement session on your own. Your parents will have opportunities to hear from faculty and staff during the parent/guest program so their questions and concerns can be addressed.
Yes. Residence hall tours are available during the Wrap Up session at Orientation. If you are unable to take a tour during your Orientation session, contact the Housing and Residence Life Office at 334-244-3572.
You will not have to pay tuition or any of your other student fees at Orientation. However, you will have time to stop by Office of Student Accounts if you would like to set up a payment plan or discuss your bill.
