Welcome to AU!

Your decision to attend AU is one of the most important ones that you'll ever make. The staff of the Office of the Dean of Students is here to make sure all of AU's new students-first year, transfer, and graduate-start the academic year off right. The people you meet and the activities you participate in during orientation programs and Welcome Weeks activities will help to shape your AU experience. We hope that you'll look, listen, discover, and ask questions. Staff members from our office as well as other members of the university community, will do everything possible to help you on your journey towards success.
