Auburn Montgomery requires all students to seek the guidance of an academic advisor before registering for courses. Students are responsible for meeting with their assigned academic advisor prior to course registration for guidance in selecting courses that comply with their specific program/major requirements. Once the advisor gives signed approval for courses, students can obtain personal identification numbers (PINs) that allows registration on AUM's online registration system. 

Students at Auburn Montgomery are broken into three groups for academic advising:

  • Bridge Program Student Advising - Students who have been admitted to the Bridge program at Auburn Montgomery are advised by a member of the Bridge program staff. 

  • Undeclared Major Advising - Students who are fully admitted to Auburn Montgomery but have not declared a major of study are advised by the Undeclared Advisor in the Warhawk Academic Success Center.

  • Declared Major Advising - Students who are fully admitted to Auburn Montgomery and have declared a major are advised in the School or department in which the major falls.

Pre-professional Program Advising

Students who are interested in preparing for professional fields such as medicine, pharmacy, or law are expected to declare a separate major while at AUM. Pre-medicine, pre-pharmacy, pre-physical therapy, pre-law etc., are not technically majors; rather, they are pre-professional curricula.  Students completing pre-professional curricula will be required to declare a separate major such as Biology, Chemistry, Political Science, etc. Students preparing for professional careers will receive advising specifically for their pre-professional curriculum as well as their major degree in order to insure that they meet the requirements associated with their AUM degree plan as well as admissions criteria for their graduate or continued professional studies. 


Auburn University at Montgomery has a universal attendance policy.  Students are expected to communicate directly with their course instructors regarding all attendance conflicts or concerns.  Please review the AUM Attendance Policy document attached below if you have specific questions concerning class attendance.  If you continue to have questions regarding the AUM Attendance Policy, please speak to your course instructor directly or contact your academic advisor.
