Institution Description

Founded in 1967 and located in Alabama’s capital city, Auburn University at Montgomery has distinguished itself as the college of choice for students in Alabama’s River Region and beyond.

In 2019, Auburn University at Montgomery earned a No. 33 ranking among regional public universities in the South from U.S. News & World Report. AUM was also recognized by U.S. News as the most ethnically diverse campus in Alabama and the 13thmost diverse in the South region with more than 40 nationalities represented. AUM also earned recognition from The Princeton Review as one of the best colleges in the Southeast and is the only River Region university to be designated a “Military Friendly School” by Victory Media.

It’s no wonder that Auburn University at Montgomery emerged from a crowded field of competitors to earn the Montgomery Advertiser Reader’s Choice Award in 2019 as the top university in the region for the second consecutive year.

Accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, AUM offers more than 90 undergraduate and graduate degree programs and certifications. Students can join us on our verdant, 500-acre campus, learn at their convenience in an online setting or experience a blend of both through hybrid course delivery.

We offer programs that are unique among our regional peers, including Geographic Information Systems, Hospitality and Tourism, Homeland Security and Emergency Management, and Cybersystems and Information Security.

Our students receive in-depth knowledge and practical experience from award-winning faculty members whose academic expertise is often enriched by industry experience.
