What are War Eagle Days?

War Eagle Days are invitation-only campus visitation days for outstanding prospective Auburn students and their families. They differ from traditional campus visits in that they include an opportunity to meet with academic, student and staff representatives, as well as attend information sessions focusing on the admissions process. There is a nominal fee for students and their guests, which includes lunch.

Will I be able to meet with an admissions advisor?

Yes. There is time allotted in the program to visit with staff in the offices of Undergraduate Recruiting, Student Financial Services, and University Scholarships. Many of the most common questions are answered at one of the morning break-out sessions, so plan to arrive early.

Is there a fee to attend?

Yes. The fee for the prospective student is $10 and includes lunch and a t-shirt. The guest fee is $10 and includes lunch. The fee is paid on-line with a VISA, MASTERCARD, AMERICAN EXPRESS, or DISCOVER at the time of confirmation of your invitation.

Can I bring a parent or other relative?

Yes. Family and siblings are welcome to attend as guests on your registration. However, as this is an invitation-only event, we ask that friends who may be prospective students contact our office before planning to attend.

Other questions can be emailed to wedadms@auburn.edu
