Auburn University at Montgomery
Mandatory International Student Orientation


Please register for the Fall-Semester International Student Orientation (August 12-14, 2015) at https://mars.aum.edu/orientation/

The International Student Orientation will help you to develop the skills to meet the challenges of the university. Because you probably have many questions about AUM and university life in general, we have planned an orientation program especially for you. At orientation you will register for classes, learn more about student services and activities, learn about academic support services and campus life, take campus and city tours, meet other AUM students who will assist you in beginning your college experience, play games, and have fun!

The International Student Orientation is a 3-day program and will take place on August 12-14, 2015 in 230 Taylor Center starting at 9:30 am. Each day is mandatory. If you do not attend the orientation, you will not be able to register for classes the following semester until you attend the orientation.

Please bring original immigration documents (Form I-20 and passport) and your immunization form to the orientation.
