University Undergraduate Advising Services

Auburn University strives to provide clear and supportive academic advising to all undergraduates throughout their academic career. In addition, Auburn provides ongoing assessment of the quality of academic advising and provides professional development opportunities throughout the year to ensure that the university’s academic advisors are fully equipped to meet our students’ needs. Auburn advisors frequently receive regional and national awards from NACADA, the professional academic advising association, for the outstanding quality of their work. Students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the advising services listed below.

College Advising Centers and Information

Every college and school on the campus of Auburn University provides students with academic advising designed to guide students through their academic curricula. Specific information about college-based advising services may be found on the Academic Advising web page.

Exploratory Advising Center

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 explore@auburn.edu, or visiting the website at https://exploratory.auburn.edu/​.
