Camp War Eagle Frequently Asked Questions

Auburn University and the Camp War Eagle staff are evaluating options for 2021 sessions. As decisions about CWE are finalized, that information will be made available on our website and via email to incoming freshmen who have paid the enrollment deposit. We appreciate your patience with us as we evaluate these options.

The questions below include scenarios for both in-person and virtual sessions. 

Questions for Students

Are all students required to participate in CWE?

By participating in CWE, you will register for your fall semester classes as part of your session. Students who do not participate in CWE will register for classes at a one-day orientation session in August. Camp War Eagle is highly advantageous for incoming freshmen. 

Orientation is where you will learn about Auburn, ask questions, meet with an academic advisor, register for classes, and meet other people from the incoming freshman class. Participation in all Camp War Eagle events during your session is required. 

How do I know which session to register for?

What is the fee for Camp War Eagle?

The Camp War Eagle fee is $150 per student and $75 per family member. Camp War Eagle fees are applied to your account and will appear on the first eBill you receive for fall semester in mid-July. No payment is required at the time you sign up for CWE. 

Please note that all Camp War Eagle fees are assessed at the time of program registration and are NOT refundable. 

When will I receive details about my CWE session?
Immediately after registering for your session, you will receive an automated registration confirmation to your Auburn email. This email will also include a link to a confirmation packet with information from CWE and various campus departments. Approximately one week before your session date, you will receive an email to your Auburn account with specific information regarding your session.
You will also receive communication from other campus departments. Continue to check your Auburn email frequently.  
What if I need to change my session?

Once you register for CWE, it is preferred that you remain in that session. However, if a session change is necessary, please email our office at fyedesk@auburn.edu with all of your available options and we will assist you in finding another available session. Please email from your Auburn account. 

How do I change my major?

If you want to change your major, send the request to webadms@auburn.edu from your Auburn email account. Please make your request as soon as possible.

 

You can see a full list of Auburn’s majors and recommended plans of study in Auburn’s Bulletin - http://bulletin.auburn.edu/undergraduate/majors/.

I have a disability. What accommodations can be made during CWE?

Students should contact Auburn University’s Office of Accessibility at (334) 844-2096. They will determine what accommodations would be appropriate for a productive and enjoyable CWE experience, and share any necessary information with our office. More information can be found on the Office of Accessibility website. 

How will I meet other students? Will I have an orientation leader?

You will be assigned an orientation leader – we call them Camp War Eagle Counselors. You will meet with a Camp War Eagle Counselor and a small group of incoming freshmen during your CWE session. 

Questions about Academics

What if I am taking classes at Auburn in the summer?

Students who want to enroll at Auburn in summer 2021 should email their academic advisor. A listing of each school or college's advising office can be found here. If you are enrolling in one of Auburn’s two summer mini-semesters, make plans to select a Camp War Eagle session that falls outside of the mini-semester in which you are taking classes. 

If you are attending the full summer semester or both mini-terms, please note that when registering for CWE. Before your CWE session, a CWE staff member will contact you through your Auburn email to discuss your summer class schedule and the CWE schedule. 

When and how will I register for classes at Camp War Eagle?

A key part of Camp War Eagle will be academic advising. In this meeting, you will learn more about your curriculum and the classes you should enroll in for the fall semester. More information will be posted on our website once decisions about CWE are finalized.

Will I have a better chance of classes if I participate in an earlier CWE session?

No. Participating in an earlier session of Camp War Eagle WILL NOT give a student an advantage in registering for classes. There are a select number of core classes withheld for each session of Camp War Eagle so all students have an equal chance of selecting necessary and desired courses. 

Whether you choose the first or last session, you will have the same opportunity for classes. 

I have not yet submitted my medical forms. Can I still register for classes at CWE?

For more information about the Medical Form and Frequently Asked Questions  regarding the form, visit: auburn.edu/medical 

If you have other questions concerning the form, please call the AU Medical Clinic at (334) 844-4416. 

Questions for Students & Families

Do students and families go through CWE together?

Camp War Eagle has traditionally hosted a robust parent and family orientation as well. At this time, no decision has been made on parent and family orientation for this summer. As those decisions are made, information regarding parent and family orientation will be available on our website.
