Auburn University at Montgomery (AUM) is a branch of Auburn University. Located about 50 miles away from its mother university, this branch campus has been in existence since 1967 and enrolls over 10,000 continuing education students and more than 5,000 full-time traditional students every year.

Academic departments are divided among five schools: Business, Education, Liberal Arts, Nursing, and Science. Of these, Nursing and Business are the largest and most populated with students. The Business School has an especially strong reputation on the national level.

Most Popular Fields of Study


Freshmen and new applicants who have never attended AUM should have their applications in by early August. There is a required application fee and some new students are eligible for this fee to be waived. All prospective students must submit transcripts and ACT or SAT scores. Different standards apply for students who have some college credits and wish to transfer, such as having a 2.5 grade point average. New transfers also should have taken some basic courses in English, math, literature, and history.

International applicants have additional proficiency tests to take in order to apply. These tests are designed to show international students have the necessary aptitude in English, computer skills, and language arts like reading and writing.

Veteran students can sign up by registering one week before a semester begins. Once registered, students are approved to begin the admissions process after meeting certain criterion. Registration is done on line and in person and each potential candidate is given a time ticket which is simply a deadline to complete registration and begin admission into the University.

Financial Aid

All students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine financial aid eligibility. Types of financial aid awarded include grants, loans, and scholarships.

A wide variety of scholarships are awarded to students each year. Residents of Alabama can apply for special scholarships and some of the departments of the university also award funds to eligibile students. Some are renewable each year while others cover a full four year term. Award amounts can range from $500 to $20,000 or more.
