E-Day FAQs

1. When does registration open?

Registration is currently open and will close February 15, 2019. See question 15 for Day-Of Registration information.

2. Why didn’t I receive my confirmation email?

Sometimes the form will come through to your junk mail. First, please check your junk folder to make sure it was not accidentally placed in that folder. Then check to make sure you entered the correct email in your registration form. If you still can’t find your registration email, please contact Engineering Student Services at futureengineer@eng.auburn.edu. We will be happy to assist you!

3. Can I participate in E-Day with my student? Do I need to register in order to participate?

Absolutely! We would love for you to participate together and learn more about the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering. Only the student needs to register for E-Day; parents are not required to register for the event. You can register your student here: eng.auburn.edu/outreach/k-12/eday/registration.html

4. I have multiple students attending E-Day. Should I register them individually or register them together?

Groups with 10 or fewer students must register each student through the individual registration link. Groups larger than 10 students can register through our group registration link.

More information about individual and group registration can be found on the E-Day registration website: eng.auburn.edu/outreach/k-12/eday/registration.html

5. I need to add more students to our group registration, how can I do that?

There is not an option to add students to a completed registration form. You will need to complete a new form with the same school and contact information, but you only need to add the new students to the new registration form. Any further questions can be directed to Engineering Student Services: futureengineer@eng.auburn.edu

6. How will groups receive their packets for the students that are registered?

Every group registered will receive a box with packets for every student registered. These packets will include: E-Day backpack, pen, folder, event map, schedule, engineering factsheet, and an attendance verification form.

7. I am driving a car, where can I park?

E-Day participants must park in the Auburn Hayfield. If participants fail to park in the designated area, they will be ticketed by Auburn Parking Services. E-Day staff will be in the Hayfield directing you to the designated bus and car parking areas. Once you have parked your car, you will be directed to our Tiger Transits. The transits will take you to the Student Center where you will check-in. Travel and parking directions can be found on our website: eng.auburn.edu/outreach/k-12/eday/eday-parking/index.html

8. What will I receive at check-in?

If you have pre-registered online, you will receive: an E-Day backpack, pen, folder, Engineering factsheet, schedule of events, event map, and attendance verification form.

9. Where can my bus drop off students from my school group?

Buses will drop-off their students on War Eagle Way. Once students have exited the bus, the bus will follow the instructions to park the bus in the Auburn Hayfield. Bus drivers will then take a Tiger Transit from the Hayfield to the Student Center where they will meet their group. Detailed directions are located on our website: eng.auburn.edu/outreach/k-12/eday/eday-parking/index.html

10. Where can I get an attendance verification for my school

All students who are pre-registered will receive a packet at check-in. This packet will include an attendance verification form to turn into their school. If your student needs a signature for an already existing form, please find a staff member wearing an orange shirt at check-in, and we will provide you with a signature.

11. Will breakfast and lunch be provided?

Refreshments will be provided on a first come, first serve basis at check-in from 8:00 – 10:30 am inside the Student Center. Dining options can be found on our E-Day website at: eng.auburn.edu/outreach/k-12/eday/dining-options.html

12. If we arrive late can we still participate?

Absolutely! Department displays will end at 12 PM, and the last tour will depart at 1 PM. We recommend students getting to campus no later than 10:30 AM so students can experience all that Auburn University E-Day has to offer.

13. How can I request accessibility services?

We ask that you contact the Auburn University Office of Accessibility at https://accessibility.auburn.edu/cm/jauntscheduling to schedule a golf cart ride for E-Day.

14. Where can we cancel registration?

We hate you cannot make our annual E-Day, but we understand things come up! Please contact our office at futureengineer@eng.auburn.edu, and we will help you cancel your registration.

15. Registration is now closed. Can I still attend EDay?

Absolutely! We will have a day-of registration table for your student to fill out a registration card. Pre-registered students are guarenteed an E-Day backpack, while day-of registration backpacks are given on a first come first serve basis.
