Exploratory Advising

Becoming educated and finding a fulfilling vocation is hard, but we believe that with the proper support and guidance any college student can learn about themselves and their options, discover the best path to pursue, and find a way to thrive. The Exploratory Advising Center provides personalized academic advising and career counseling to Auburn students at any stage of exploration. Incoming freshmen can declare as an Exploratory major for up to two semesters, and will follow a structured exploring process through the exploratory first year seminar, taken for academic credit. Current Auburn students can get help thinking about a change of major, identifying possible career paths, or developing a personalized academic success plan. All students coming to Exploratory gain the support of our academic advisors and career counselors who specialize in helping students explore, discover, and pursue their best options. The Exploratory Advising Center is located at 101 Mary Martin Hall and is open from 7:45 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Additional information may be obtained by calling (334) 844-7277, emailing, visiting the website at​ or vising the Exploratory Advising Center section of the AU Bulletin.
