COVID-19 Orientation Updates

June 10, 2020: Though the university will be reopening to in-person instruction and hosting events on-campus on a limited basis, there are health restrictions from the State of Alabama and the Centers for Disease Control which limit event size and require social distancing. These restrictions, while necessary, prevent us from offering a program to you that we believe would be both engaging and meaningful.

In the meantime, we will point our efforts toward August when our office and many others will offer events as part of Auburn's Welcome Week. More information about Welcome Week will be available as we get closer to the start of fall.

April 28, 2020: Thank you to all who joined us on Monday, April 27 for a Camp War Eagle Facebook Live event on During the event, we explained the CWE registration process which opens April 29 at 1:00 pm, provided more details about the CWE sessions and answered questions live. You can watch the recorded session here or on our Facebook page and the slides from this session are available here. Both students and parents are encouraged to take part in this discussion.


April 9, 2020: In light of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the plans for Camp War Eagle (CWE) have changed. Out of concern for the health and wellbeing of you and the entire Auburn community, much of your orientation will be conducted online. Please review this email sent to students on April 9 and our website ( for more information. Continue to check your Auburn email for details about your session.


Auburn University is closely monitoring the emergence of COVID-19 and consulting with public health officials to ensure the safety of the university community. Check the university’s COVID-19 website for the most up-to-date information about campus operations.

Welcome to the Auburn Family!

Congratulations on your acceptance to Auburn University! We look forward to hosting you virtually through Camp War Eagle (CWE) this summer. Through CWE, we will provide an experience which will promote the academic, social and personal success of incoming freshmen students. We hope our website will provide all necessary information and instructions to prepare you for your orientation session and your first year at Auburn University.

Once you’ve submitted your enrollment deposit, be sure to check the orientation schedule and register for CWE. Please do not make flight or travel arrangements for CWE as your session will occur using virtual meeting technology including Zoom.

During CWE, you will:

  • Meet your CWE Camp Counselor and other incoming freshman students while you learn more about Auburn.
  • Discover campus resources and departments to help you succeed at Auburn.
  • Learn to use online systems including AU Access and Tiger Scheduler.
  • Connect with your academic advisor and register for classes. 


The final part of your orientation is your introduction to the Auburn campus community. Our hope is to provide this to you in a one-day, on-campus session in July if the COVID-19 pandemic situation allows. If we are unable to host you on campus in July, this portion of orientation will be canceled.


We encourage you to explore our site and carefully read all emails and print material provided. If you need further assistance, please contact us.
