Summer Transition

Summer Transition Program

The Summer Transition Program is a conditional admission option which provides a bridge program to full enrollment at Auburn University. You will begin classes for the Summer Session II on June 26, 2017 and conclude with finals on August 4, 2017.  The summer session will focus on academic and life skills as well as an academic core class. In the fall, students will take a full course load of 12 to 15 hours which will include core classes and may include electives or introductory courses in their degree program.

Students who successfully complete at least 15 Auburn hours in their summer and fall classes with a minimum unadjusted, cumulative Auburn GPA of 2.5 will be fully admitted in the spring semester. Students who do not meet the program requirements at the end of the fall term will follow the transfer guidelines outlined in the Auburn Bulletin for students not eligible for admission upon high school graduation.

Will I be eligible for on-campus housing?

 You will be able to apply for on-campus housing once you are accepted into the program and have placed a $200.00 confirmation deposit to Admissions. Included in the “What’s Next” brochure are instructions on making the confirmation deposit.  This is due no later than May 1, however access to the FALL housing application is based upon receipt of the deposit.  You may choose to make the confirmation deposit of $200.00 (which is non-refundable) before May 1 in order to apply for FALL housing.  Housing is based on a first come-first served basis and is subject to full capacity resulting in students being waitlisted.  More information concerning housing is located on the housing website.

Summer housing is handled a bit differently.  Visit the Office of University Housing for more information concerning summer housing.
