This information will be used to determine which courses students should take.
The room and board expenses for each student will be paid. In addition, students will be loaned chemistry and mathematics textbooks.
Students will attend academic seminars twice a week. They will also visit science, engineering and mathematics laboratories, go on field trips to industry, and register for Fall classes.
Students will be taught how to use university computers for communication, mathematical computations, typing term papers, and accessing important information such as course schedules, financial aid, etc.
Students will be taught study and time management skills. They will also attend seminars and discussions on topics such as career options and how to succeed at Auburn University. Weekends will be reserved for personal time, homework, and group outings.
