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:
College of Business Advising
School of Education Advising
School of Liberal Arts Advising
School of Nursing Advising
School of Sciences Advising
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.
