Welcome to the Auburn Family!

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

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.
  • Connect with your academic advisor and register for classes.

CWE Preview Webinar Recording 

Check out a recording of the Camp War Eagle Preview from April 29. During the webinar, we provided an overview of Camp War Eagle, First Year Seminars, and Learning Communities, and discussed things incoming freshmen should be working on prior to their CWE session.

Tips to Prepare for CWE Registration:  

CWE registration opens on March 26 at 1pm CT for deposited freshman students. Here are some tips to help you prepare:  

  1. CWE is how incoming freshmen will register for classes. This program is critical to your success and aids in the transition into Auburn. Be sure you register for a session!  
  2. Do you have the My Academics tab? You must have submitted your $250 enrollment deposit to register for CWE. Usually within 24 hours of payment, your AU Access adds the My Academics tab. Make sure you have this tab at least a day before CWE registration opens. You can pay your enrollment deposit at: 
  3. Check the CWE dates. Not every college is at every session, so be sure to review your options at: Instructions for how to register for CWE are also on that webpage.  
  4. Registration is first come, first served. Some sessions will fill up in minutes, so be prepared with a first choice and backup options. Please remember that selecting an earlier session of CWEwill notgive you an advantage in registering for classes during your course registration period. There will be a similar distribution of seats in core classes provided for each session so that all incoming freshman students who participate in CWE have an equal chance of selecting necessary and desired courses. 
  5. Guests are encouraged to attend. As you fill out the registration form, you will be asked for any guest’s name, email address, and if they need any special accommodations. We recommend talking in advance to determine who will attend and having their information ready to go. If you aren’t ready to commit at the time of CWE registration, you can call or email us to add them later. There is a $75 non-refundable fee per guest.  
  6. Book travel wisely. Make sure your CWE session is confirmed before you book hotel or travel arrangements. Your anticipated departure time will be around 4:30 pm CT on the second day of your session after you have registered for your fall class schedule. If you are flying out of Atlanta (ATL) after your session, plan to fly after 9:30 pm ET to allow for travel time to the airport, the time change, and navigating to your gate.   
  7. No payment is needed right now. The CWE fees will be added to your first eBill which posts in mid-July and will be due in mid-August. 


We appreciate your patience as we anticipate a large volume of calls and emails when we open registration. Students, when emailing us please use your Auburn email address.
