Transient Approval

An Auburn student in good standing may be approved to take courses at another institution on a transient basis for one term. In order to do so, you must first fill out the transient form online.

  • To access the online transient form you will need to first log into AUAccess.
  • Choose "Student Menu". Student Menu Icon
  • From the available options, choose "Transient Enrollment for Auburn Students at Other Institutions".
  • Read the Transient Enrollment Guidelines carefully. The online form may not be appropriate for every situation.
  • Choose the term, state, and institution you wish to take courses as a transient student, and click the Search button.
  • When the correct courses are listed, click "Proceed to Transient Form" to produce and print the form.
  • *If you have issues printing, you may need to try a different browser or adjust your print settings.
  • Mail or hand deliver the form to the institution you plan to attend.

After completion of transient course, it’s the student’s responsibility to request that a transcript be sent back to Auburn University. Send transcripts to:

The Office of the Registrar
Langdon Hall
152 S. College Street.
Auburn, AL 36849

If the course you wish to take is not listed on the online transient form, you will need to see your advisor. The respective college/school within the University can issue a "Transient Student Form". The dean or advisor indicates the courses approved to be taken elsewhere. The completed form is taken or mailed by the student to the intended university prior to course enrollment.

See Transient Approval Policy for additional information.

Schedule Drop/Add

Students may add courses online from the designated registration dates for each respective term through the fifth day of that term (second day for summer terms). Departments can add students to courses through the first fifteen days of each respective term (five days for summer terms). Should students need to add courses after the first fifteen class days of the term, they need to see their Academic Advisor to request a Schedule Adjustment. Students may drop courses online through the withdrawal date of each respective term with no academic penalty. Should students need to drop a course after the withdrawal date, permission must be granted. A drop after the withdrawal date will only be granted when extenuating circumstances exist. The student needs to contact his/her Academic Advisor to request a Schedule Adjustment. If the request is to drop a course after the withdrawal date, a grade of W or WF will be assigned. A drop after the withdrawal date can result in the student receiving an academic penalty. See the section "Withdrawal from a course" in the AU Bulletin.

Change of Major

To change your major prior to freshmen or transfer orientation (prior to registration for your first term), please call 334-844-6429. Students, who are currently enrolled at the University, request to change their major through the appropriate college/school. The student obtains his/her academic file folder from his/her current academic advisor and takes that folder to an academic advisor in the college/school that he/she wishes to change. That advisor reviews the file and determines the eligibility of the student to enter that respective college/school. If permission is granted, a change of major form is processed. The Office of Admissions and Records processes the requested change in the system.

Undergraduate Readmission

Students who have previously attended Auburn University and who wish to re-enter must secure permission to register from the Office of the Registrar if they have not been enrolled during the preceding 12 months or if they have been academically ineligible to be enrolled. Undergraduate students who have not been enrolled at Auburn University for a period of five years or more and who are returning to the same curriculum may be subject to different university, college, school, or departmental requirements than those which existed at the time of their initial entry, as well as those which existed at the program level when continuous enrollment ceased. The university, college, school, or department reserves the right to review a former student’s completed work, and if deemed appropriate, may require any readmitted student to meet graduation requirements as listed in the catalog in effect at the time of re-entry. In addition, each college/school may have more specific requirements for readmitted students.

A student seeking readmission who has attended another college since being enrolled at Auburn University must:

  1. be eligible to re-enter the last institution attended, and
  2. have a 2.0 average overall in course work attempted at other colleges if they have been enrolled elsewhere for two or more terms.

Two official transcripts from each institution attended must be furnished to the Office of the Registrar. Students who have been away from the University for more than one term must reestablish their right to residency. They will initially be classified as a non-resident and be required to produce normal documentation.
