  5. Does Auburn University at Montgomery offer conditional admission?

    AUM may offer you conditional admission if you are an international student who requires English language instruction before you can begin your studies at the university level. If you are conditionally admitted, you will attend AUM’s ESL Program to study English. After you complete an undergraduate application, please send us an e-mail request . Students requesting conditional admission must meet all of the university's international undergraduate admission requirements except the English proficiency requirement. AUM does not offer conditional admission for any graduate programs. 

    If you are an undergraduate student that scores a 5.0 on the IELTS test or a 57-60 on the internet-based TOEFL, you may be eligible for the International Pathways (IP) program.   A student admitted into the IP program will enroll in a combination of academic and ESL classes through AUM’s ESL program.  Students requesting admission to the IP program must fill out an undergraduate application and meet all of the university's international undergraduate admission requirements except the English proficiency requirement.
