AUM Advances to year three of NCAA Division II membership process

Auburn University at Montgomery moved another step closer to full NCAA status on Friday when the Warhawks were approved to advance to the third and final year of the membership process by the NCAA Division II Membership Committee.

“Auburn University at Montgomery is pleased with today’s news from the NCAA,” said AUM Chancellor Dr. Carl A. Stockton. “The AUM Warhawks look forward to moving into our third year of NCAA DII candidacy and continuing our progress toward acceptance in the Gulf South Conference. I thank our Athletics staff for their focus on this process, and I thank our student-athletes and our faculty and staff who have contributed to our progress.”
