COVID-19 Updates, Undergraduate Admissions

intro text

Auburn University is closely monitoring the emergence of COVID-19 and consulting with public health officials to ensure the safety of our whole university community. To promote social distancing, all on-campus university events are canceled through June 30. During this time, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions is taking extenuating circumstances related to COVID-19 into consideration. We know you have questions and we will use this page to provide you with frequent updates.

We'll be together soon.

Until then, we're all coping with the challenges of COVID-19. But, in times like these, the Auburn Family shines.

"I believe in the human touch, which cultivates sympathy with my fellow men and mutual helpfulness and brings happiness for all." This line from the Auburn Creed rings especially true today. While that touch may be virtual for now, trust that we are here for you. We will continue to go above and beyond serving you. The University is fully operational, and we are focused on bringing in the newest members of our Auburn Family. That's you. Let us know what you need, and we'll make sure your admissions process is as smooth as ever. That's the Auburn way.
