        • Camp War Eagle (CWE) is Auburn University‚Äôs orientation program for all incoming freshmen.  For 2024, Auburn will host 12 sessions of Camp War Eagle scheduled during the months of May, June, and July.    
        • During the 2-day CWE session, students and their guests will have a campus-wide orientation on day 1 where they will meet other incoming freshmen and discover campus resources to help them succeed at Auburn.  On day 2, students will attend College of Business Academic Advising. 
          • The academic advising meeting will begin with students and their guests participating in a large-group information session that includes a thorough explanation of the Pre-Business course requirements and College of Business expectations. 
          • Students and their guests will have time to talk through a class plan for Fall semester, after which students will attend a student-only session with the academic advising team.  Parents will enjoy a reception during that time.

        Prepare for your College of Business academic advising meeting

        In addition to participating in the university's CWE orientation on day 1 of camp, all incoming freshmen are required to meet with a Business advisor on day 2. Here's what you should know:

        1. Students who completed AP or IB tests should know the minimum test scores required by Auburn to receive college credit.  See AP/IB conversion tables below. 

        2. Students will review Pre-Business course requirements on day 2 of the camp session.  Students and guests are welcome to preview the Pre-Business course requirements prior to Camp War Eagle.    

        3. Using the information provided during the large group Pre-Business course review, students will prepare a list of Fall 2024 course options.  Students and their guests will have time talk through the student's course options before the students attend their one-on-one conversations with the academic advisors. 

        4. Students who completed dual enrollment or are taking summer transfer coursework must understand how transferred college credits will count toward the Pre-Business requirements.  See the AU Transfer Equivalency table link in the next section.  BRING A COPY OF YOUR TRANSCRIPTS TO CAMP WAR EAGLE TO ENSURE ALL COMPLETED (AND IN-PROGRESS) COLLEGE-LEVEL COURSES ARE CONSIDERED WHEN PLANNING YOUR FALL SCHEDULE.

          The scores should be provided from the testing agency or by a home report copy. Note: Auburn University does not accept CLEP credit.

          • ACT (English) score:

          Upon receipt, appropriate course credit will be applied to your Auburn University transcript.  Because Auburn receives a large number of requests for AP/IB credit, there may be some delay in posting credit to your transcript.  Please check your transcript periodically to ensure you have received the proper credits.  Contact the Office of the Registrar at (334) 844-2528 if you have questions about this process.

        • Dual Enrollment Information - how will my transfer courses count?
