Welcome to the Exploratory Advising Center!
The Exploratory Advising Center is the place for incoming freshmen who are in the process of determining the right academic path to follow at Auburn. In the Center, first-time college students are advised by cross-trained advisors and career counselors who provide intensive and personalized advising designed to help them choose the major that most closely meets their academic aptitudes and interests as well as their long-term goals. This option does not replace undeclared major options such as in Liberal Arts, Sciences and Mathematics,or Engineering. Instead, its goal is to assist students who are uncertain which broad academic area they wish to pursue. More information is available on our Exploratory Major handout. All students who enter Auburn University as Exploratory students must select a college or specific major by the end of their second semester. Students who enter Auburn as transfer students are not eligible to enroll as Exploratory. Transfer students are encouraged to seek support through Academic Support Services and the Auburn University Career Center.
Exploratory Advising Center also advises upperclassman students who have been referred by their college to the center for collaborative academic advising and career counseling to determine the next steps of their academic pursuits. The center provides a positive and supportive network of academic counselors, career counselors, and academic advisors to assist students in determining the best course of action for them personally.
