Admissions, Standards, and Requirements

Eligibility for admission to the Aviation Management program is determined by the Auburn University Admissions Office on the basis of the candidate’s test scores and previous academic record.

Transfer Students

Transfer students (external and internal) may enter the Aviation Management program during any semester.  Students must meet with the Aviation Management advisor prior to transferring.

Curriculum in Professional Flight

Auburn University is a FAA-approved Part 141 pilot school.  Flight operations are conducted at the Auburn University Regional Airport (KAUO), located less than three miles from campus.  

The Professional Flight degree qualifies the graduate for the eventual attainment of the FAA Restricted Airline Transport Pilot (R-ATP) certification with as little as 1,000 hours of flying experience.  Degree certifications and ratings include Private Pilot Certification, Instrument-Airplane Rating, Commercial Pilot Certification, Multi-Engine Rating, Certificated Flight Instructor with Airplane Single-Engine rating (CFI), CFI with Instrument-Airplane rating (CFII), and CFI with Multi-Engine rating (MEI).  One advanced pilot or flight instructor certification/rating MUST be completed at Auburn.  To be eligible for the FAA R-ATP, the ground and flight training for the Instrument-Airplane rating and Commercial Pilot certification must be completed at Auburn.

Admissions, Standards, and Requirements

Eligibility for admission to the Professional Flight program is determined by the Auburn University Admissions Office on the basis of the candidate’s test scores and previous academic record.

Transfer Students

Transfer students (external and internal) may enter the Professional Flight program during Fall or Spring semester and will be accepted on a space-available basis as determined by the department chair.  A minimum cumulative unadjusted grade point average of 2.70 is required.  Students must meet with the Professional Flight advisor prior to transferring.  

Progression

Students must earn a grade of at least C in all courses in the major and maintain a minimum 2.70 overall unadjusted GPA.  The Professional Flight curriculum is designed for progressive development of flight knowledge and skills, and students who earn less than a C will not be allowed to progress to the next course.  A course in which a student earns a grade less than a C may be repeated one time only.  Successful completion of the repeated course will result in the student being allowed to continue to progress through the Professional Flight degree curriculum.  Students who earn a grade less than C in two or more Professional Flight major courses, or maintain an overall unadjusted GPA below 2.70, will be considered for dismissal from the program.

Flight Fees

Flight lab courses have an associated flight fee established by the Department of Aviation prior to the start of the academic year.  Flight fees cover aircraft, flight simulation, flight instructor, and FAA knowledge exam fees.  The training hours and fees outlined below are the minimum to complete a flight lab course.  Students requiring additional instruction will incur additional flight lab fees.  Unexpected large changes in fuel prices may necessitate the addition of a fuel surcharge for all training airplane usage.

Flight Lab Course Schedule Adjustment

Flight education is unique and student progression through the program is subject to uncontrollable factors, such as the weather.  Auburn University’s Schedule Adjustment Policy allows departments to add students to courses through the first fifteen class days of the term.  Additionally, with the approval of their advisor, instructor and associate dean, students may add classes after the fifteenth-class day, prior to the Last Day to Withdraw date published in the Auburn University Academic Calendar. 

Course Incompletes

Students unable to complete a flight lab course within the term will be assigned a grade of incomplete (IN) in accordance with Auburn University’s Faculty Policy on Assigning Grades of Incomplete.

Aviation Veteran Students

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Post 9/11 GI Bill® will cover flight course fees in accordance with the bill’s provision and the individual veteran’s benefits, but only to the extent to cover the minimum required hours of training and any mandatory fees.  In no case may a student who is utilizing a Federal VA Education benefit be certified to the VA for payment of flight or ground hours beyond the hours approved by the Alabama State Approving Agency (SAA) for that particular course.  These hours, and the cost affiliated with each one, is listed in the Flight Fees paragraph above and in the current Veterans Information Bulletin (VIB).  The VA does not pay for review flights or proficiency training.  The VA student is responsible for any difference between university flight fees and the VA’s coverage of fees.  

Students utilizing Federal VA Education benefits must ensure that they are registered for a flight lab prior to commencing the course.  Degree-applicable courses will be certified to the VA by the university’s School Certifying Official (SCO). 

Per VA regulations, all enrollment changes must be reported to the VA within 30 days.

Additional information regarding VA benefits is available in the current Veterans Information Bulletin (VIB) through the Auburn University Veterans Resource Center and Department of Aviation.
