Admission and Eligibility FAQs

Who can participate in the Auburn Guarantee Program?
Auburn University works with Auburn University at Montgomery to identify eligible students who applied for freshman admission to Auburn University but will not be offered traditional admission. This select group of students is invited to participate in the Auburn Guarantee program.

How does the admission process work?
Invited students interested in receiving more information about the program indicate their interest in Auburn Guarantee on the online interest form for Auburn Guarantee. After a student officially indicates interest, Auburn University forwards the student’s application and educational information to Auburn University at Montgomery (AUM). After the student expresses interest, Auburn Guarantee sends, electronically and by regular mail, interested students more information about the program, including how to reserve a space in the program. Invited students are not officially accepted into the program until they have paid a confirmation deposit to reserve their space. The confirmation deposit will be accepted until June 1.

Where do I send my updated ACT or SAT test scores? 
If you have updated ACT or SAT test scores, please have them sent to AUM Admissions not Auburn Admissions.  You can email an official copy of your updated scores to admissions@aum.edu or fax them to 334-244-3795.  Alternatively, you can send official ACT or SAT test scores to:

If I am denied admission to Auburn University on February 15th or after, will all the spots in the Seamless Admission program be taken by people who were denied admission before me in November and December?
No. Invitations are mailed out on a rolling basis starting in November and through early spring as admission decisions are being made by Auburn University. The majority of Auburn decisions are made on November 15, December 15, and February 15. Auburn Guarantee decisions also happen on a rolling basis. Upon expressing interest,students will be sent instructions on how to submit a confirmation deposit to secure a seat in the program. 

Academic FAQs

How many semesters is the Auburn Guarantee program?

Auburn Guarantee is a year long program.  While most participants complete the required 30 hours in the Fall and Spring, special circumstances do require some students to take Summer classes. If you find that you are in need of taking Summer classes, we will work with you so that you can complete your coursework on either the AUM campus or at an institution near your home, pending good academic standing.  

If I am doing really well in my first semester of the Auburn Guarantee program, can I transfer to Auburn at the end of the Fall semester?
No.  Auburn Guarantee students are not eligible to transfer to Auburn mid-year.   

Will students have to re-submit official transcripts (high school/college) to AUM?
No. Students do not have to re-submit their official transcripts to Auburn Montgomery until they graduate.The Auburn Montgomery Office of Admissions and Recruiting will work with the Auburn Admissions Office to obtain the initial transcript, ACT and/or SAT scores you have already sent to Auburn. Once the student graduates from high school please send an official final transcript to:

Do you accept dual enrollment or early enrollment credits?
Yes. Dual enrollment credits will be taken into account when you are being academically advised and will count towards your major and class standing.  However dual enrollment will not count in the 30 AUM hours needed for transfer to Auburn.   

Do you accept AP or IB credit?
AP and IB credit will not count towards the 30-semester hour requirement.  However, you can receive credit for these classes once you transfer to Auburn. 
 

Do developmental courses count towards the 30 hours required for transfer?
Developmental courses do count towards your required 30 credit hours in the program, but they do not count towards your overall class standing.  These courses are required courses for those who did not score high enough on the ACT or SAT to be placed into college level math. Pending a student's math placement, a developmental math course (s) (MATH 0700/0701 and/or MATH 0800/0801) may be required before a student is eligible to take a transferable core level math class. If a student is placed in a developmental math course(s), the student must successfully pass the course(s) before being allowed to take a transferable core math class.
