E-Day FAQs

1. When does registration open?

Registration will open December 1, 2019, and will close February 21, 2020, at 4:00 pm CST. 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 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:

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 page: E-Day Registration

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. New submissions can be submitted until the close date of February 21. Any further questions can be directed to Engineering Student Services:

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?

Our university is ever-changing. Updated parking information for E-Day 2020 will be uploaded Fall 2019! Travel and parking directions can be found on our website: E-Day Parking

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 park in the green space next to the Auburn University seed processing plant off Donahue. There will be staff directing the bus to the park, and all participants will take the Orange Tiger Transit line to the drop-off location listed on the event map. Detailed and printable directions are located on our website: E-Day Parking

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 building. All other dining options can be found on our E-Day website at: Campus Dining

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 our office at to arrange accommodations. 

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, 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 guaranteed an E-Day backpack, while day-of registration backpacks are given on a first come first serve basis.
