Things to DO before CWE

Test your username and password

Your user name and password are important pieces of information. Before leaving home, please make sure you know both of these and can successfully log into AU Access: auaccess.auburn.edu

Complete the Financial Obligation Agreement

You must complete your Financial Obligation Agreement before registering for classes. You can complete this agreement before coming to CWE by logging in AU Access (“My Academics” tab > “Student Records” section > “Financial Obligation Agreement” link). 

Complete your Medical Information Form to clear your Medical Hold permanently

Upon acceptance to Auburn, students are placed on hold by the AU Medical Clinic pending your submission of required immunization records. If you have not submitted your Medical Information Forms to the Auburn University Medical Clinic via Med+Proctor, please do so as soon as possible to clear the hold permanently.

Complete an electronic Letter of Understanding (LOU) to clear your Medical Hold temporarily

In order to clear the medical hold temporarily to allow for course registration at CWE, you should complete an electronic Letter of Understanding (LOU). You may access the LOU in AU Access (“My Academics” tab > “Student Records” section > “Temporary Waiver of Medical Hold” link). Completion of the electronic LOU will grant a temporary exception to the medical hold to allow you to register for classes at Camp War Eagle. The Medical Information Form must then be submitted via Med+Proctor within 30 days of your Camp War Eagle session.

Prepare for course registration

One of the key components of Camp War Eagle is class registration. Registration occurs in the same system you logged into to sign up for CWE. Prior to attending CWE, make sure you review the following presentation to familiarize yourself with how the system works. View the video here: AU Access Video 

Upload your photo for your Tigercard

You can find more information about uploading your photo for your Tigercard here. Please pay close attention to the Photo Guidelines listed.

Things to BRING to CWE

Packing for CWE

Please remember your: CWE parking pass; small amount of cash for activities; any medication needed; water bottle and sunscreen; backpack/tote to carry CWE materials; walking shoes; pillow, sleeping bag (or XL twin sheets), toiletries, and towel 

What to wear

For students, almost all of Day 1 of CWE is outside, so please dress comfortably and be prepared to do a lot of walking. For evening activities on Day 1, there are several things planned around campus and downtown. You will be required to wear your CWE t-shirt to these events. Day 2 is mostly inside, although you will walk to and from advising and registration.

The vast majority of the Parent Program is inside the AU Student Center. There is some walking from the Student Center to other locations. The air conditioning in the Student Center works very well, so if you are prone to being chilly, bring some sleeves.

Luggage Reminders

When you are packing your belongings, remember that everything you bring (including your bedding) must be contained in one suitcase and one personal bag. Please pack as lightly as possible. You will be carrying your luggage from a parking lot to your residence hall, so pack efficiently.

Arriving EARLY to CWE

Early Arrival Students

The residence halls will lock at 9:30 pm that night.

If you (student only) arrive after 7:00 pm on Wednesday or Sunday, please park in the Village Parking Lot and report to Aubie Hall prior to 9:30 pm.

We will be prepared either way.

Things to KNOW about CWE

Transfer and dual enrollment credit

If you are transferring courses to Auburn from other institutions, you may see these classes show on your unofficial transcript as pending credit. To view your unofficial transcript, login to AU Access, navigate to the My Academics tab and click the Unofficial Transcript link in the Student Records section (middle of the page). A pending credit means that the course is in the process of being evaluated by the relevant department at Auburn University. Once the credit has been articulated, it will automatically be updated on your record/unofficial transcript. If you have any questions about pending credits please contact your academic advisor. If you don’t see your transfer work on the unofficial transcript or if there are courses missing, send in a final transcript from your transferring institution to Admissions Processing at 1550 East Glenn Avenue, Suite 1210, Auburn, AL 36849.

AP/IB Credits

AP Scores will be posted by the Office of the Registrar once they have been received. Please allow through the end of the summer for your scores to be updated on your academic record. Your academic advisor will let you know how your Fall schedule should be built based on the AP scores you are waiting to receive. Auburn’s acceptance of AP scores can be found on the Office of the Registrar’s site at the web address auburn.edu/administration/registrar/student.html#apInfo. If you have any questions about this process, you may email registrar@auburn.edu.

Learning Communities

In your CWE confirmation packet, there was information on learning communities (LCs). Limited space is still available. If you are interested, please visit auburn.edu/lc.

If you have already signed up for a learning community, you have been pre-registered for the classes associated with it.

Participate in a Health Education Survey

PURPOSE: The goal of this research is to compare the efficacy of textual and video educational interventions among college students. This information will shed light on how the delivery method of healthcare information may affect students’ perceptions and intentions. This study is being conducted by Heba Aref, a graduate student in the Department of Health Outcomes Research and Policy, Harrison School of Pharmacy, under the advisement of Dr. Kimberly B. Garza, Assistant Professor of Health Outcomes Research and Policy.

WHAT DO YOU DO? If you decide to participate, you will complete an online survey consisting of items related to your knowledge, perceptions, and intentions related to health. Any student 18 years of age or older is eligible to participate. To participate and receive the survey link, please email Heba Aref at hza0031@auburn.edu.

WHY PARTICIPATE? Participants who complete the online survey and provide their contact information will have a chance to win one of four $50 cash prizes. The survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete, and can be taken at any time, wherever you have access to the internet. In addition, participants will be invited to complete a very brief follow-up survey with an additional chance to win one of four $50 cash prizes.

For more information, please contact: Heba Aref at hza0031@auburn.edu or (334)-498-6580
