Auburn University at Montgomery
Auburn University at Montgomery
Founded in 1967 and located in Alabama’s capital city, Auburn University at Montgomery has distinguished itself as the college of choice for students in Alabama’s River Region and beyond.
In 2019, Auburn University at Montgomery earned a No. 33 ranking among regional public universities in the South from U.S. News & World Report. AUM was also recognized by U.S. News as the most ethnically diverse campus in Alabama and the 13th most diverse in the South region with more than 40 nationalities represented. AUM also earned recognition from The Princeton Review as one of the best colleges in the Southeast and is the only River Region university to be designated a “Military Friendly School” by Victory Media.
It’s no wonder that Auburn University at Montgomery emerged from a crowded field of competitors to earn the Montgomery Advertiser Reader’s Choice Award in 2019 as the top university in the region for the second consecutive year.
Accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, AUM offers more than 90 undergraduate and graduate degree programs and certifications. Students can join us on our verdant, 500-acre campus, learn at their convenience in an online setting or experience a blend of both through hybrid course delivery.
If it inspires you or defines who you want to be, you’ll find it in one of our five colleges – College of Business, College of Education, College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, College of Nursing and Health Sciences, and the College of Sciences. We offer programs that are unique among our regional peers, including Geographic Information Systems, Hospitality and Tourism, Homeland Security and Emergency Management, and Cybersystems and Information Security.
Our students receive in-depth knowledge and practical experience from award-winning faculty members whose academic expertise is often enriched by industry experience. Best of all, with a student-to-faculty ratio of 17:1, your professors will know your name. Nearly 50 percent of our classes include 20 or fewer students, which feeds into a personalized and engaging learning experience.
We also pride ourselves on making a high quality education more affordable. Nearly 40 percent of AUM students earn scholarship assistance of some type, including scholarships designated for incoming freshmen, transfer students, international students, graduate students, and active duty military, veterans and their dependents.
We offer a diverse, close-knit and active campus community with more than 70 student clubs and organizations, and an athletic program that is flourishing as a new member of NCAA Division II membership and the Gulf South Conference.
There is more to your college experience, of course, than what you learn in the classroom. Your personal experience in school will be unique, whether you are living on campus or going to school at night after work. And you’ll grow during your time at AUM in ways that are hard to predict.
While you’re here, you’ll find countless opportunities to expand your experiences far beyond the classroom. From Student Government to Greek Life, from clubs and organizations to intramural sports, you'll have every opportunity to pursue your passions or find new ones. What you’ll discover is that the things you learn outside of the classroom have just as big an impact on your life as the courses you study. You’ll build relationships and gain experiences and develop essential leaderships skills that will prepare you take on the life you choose with confidence.
You are making a significant investment in time, effort and money to finish your education at AUM. It is our job to create exceptional learning experiences for you, to foster a spirit of diversity, inquiry and critical thinking. We want our students to become innovative, ethical leaders who make a difference in the global community.
Men's & Women's Sports
Sports are a big deal on campus at AUM. We are currently transitioning toward full NCAA Division II membership in the 2019-20 season after many successful years at the NAIA level, which featured 25 national championships. We currently sponsor 11 varsity sports — men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s tennis, baseball, softball and volleyball — and compete in the Gulf South Conference. We have a rich history of great teams and cheering on the Warhawks is a big part of campus life!
