Parents and other guests are also invited to attend SOS. There is a separate program designed specifically for them, and an additional fee of $50 per guest will be charged to your account. The parent/guest program is for family members interested in learning about Auburn. Incoming Auburn students are the only people permitted to attend the student program. Your friends should not plan to attend SOS with you unless they are also entering students and registered for that SOS session.
Parents and guests of incoming Auburn transfer students are also invited to attend SOS. Parents and guests will participate in their own, separate program that is designed specifically for them. An additional fee of $50 will be charged per guest. This guest fee will be charged to the student’s online billing account (eBill) as well and will include breakfast, lunch, and program materials. The parent/guest program is designed for family members interested in learning about Auburn.
Please note that the SOS student and guest registration fees are non-refundable
Immediately after registering for your session, you will receive a registration confirmation in your Auburn email inbox. After you register, you will receive a confirmation letter, campus map, parking pass, and parking instructions through the mail. A week before your session date, you will receive an email to your Auburn account with specific information regarding your session.
In the meantime, we also encourage you to download Auburn Guides, a mobile app containing the SOS schedule and other resources. Auburn Guides is Apple and Android compatible and you can download the app by visiting the App Store/Google Play, or anyone can go to https://guidebook.com/g/w4sob1dzv0t98hx to view the web version.
If you do not meet the March 1 deadline (see Class Registration Information), the only way to have a fall schedule in place is to attend SOS in the spring. Transfer students who do not attend one of the four SOS sessions in the spring will not be allowed to register for classes until the August SOS session. By this point, football tickets are usually sold out. If you are interested in football tickets, we highly encourage you to attend either a SOS session in the spring or meet the pre-registration deadline.
During the check in process at SOS, we will confirm your major. If the major listed is not correct, we will correct your major so that you can attend the correct college or school’s advising session. Because of the quick turnaround time between check-in and advising, your advisor may suggest that you schedule another appointment so they can further review your academic record.
All other sessions throughout the day are designed specifically for students or parents and guests separately.
