Auburn University at Montgomery moved one step closer to full NCAA Division II membership Friday, when it was approved to advance to year two of the three-year membership process.

AUM received notification from the NCAA Division II Membership Committee that the program successfully completed provisional year one in 2016-17 and was permitted to begin its second year of the membership process this fall.

“This is an exciting time for AUM athletics,” AUM Chancellor Carl A. Stockton said. “I want to applaud our athletics staff and coaches, as well as the members of our campus community who have supported this university-wide effort. I look forward to making continued-progress towards full membership.”

During provisional year two, the Warhawks will compete as a provisional member of the Gulf South Conference, but will not be eligible to participate in conference or NCAA postseason events. If all benchmarks are completed during the next year, AUM will move to the final provisional year in 2018-19, with its first full year of Division II membership and postseason eligibility being during the 2019-20 season.

“The NCAA Division II transition has been a journey and will continue to be one as we work through years two and three to active membership,” AUM Director of Athletics Jessie Rosa said. “I am so proud of our the effort and commitment our coaches and staff made to ensure their sport and support programs are run in such a way that positions us as model DII athletic program. I want to specifically thank Assistant Athletics Director Andree Houston for her personal efforts throughout this process to meet the heavy demands on her leadership in compliance. This is a great day not only for AUM Athletics, but for our institution as a whole.”
