Launched in 2020, Auburn’s Connecting the Creed program aims to enhance students’ personal qualities, experiences, and life skills across areas of financial wellness, mental health and physical well-being, civic literacy, and information literacy. By emphasizing the values personified by the Auburn Creed, this program highlights specific areas of personal development critical to inspiring and preparing our students for life and careers.

Creed to Succeed Header

What is Creed to Succeed?


Creed to Succeed (UNIV 4AA0-University Graduation) is a non-credit course all undergraduate students must complete the semester leading up to graduation. There are four activities associated with the course. Once a student enrolls in their specific section, they have access to a Canvas course that will allow them to complete the four activities.


What is the AT Hold?


Starting in the student’s last semester, the AT Hold will be placed on the graduating senior’s account. The AT Hold is associated with the Creed to Succeed course. The AT Hold does not prevent a student from registering for classes or accessing financial aid packages; the hold only restricts the delivery of a student’s physical diploma (providing the successful conferral of a degree).


Why is the Creed to Succeed course important to Auburn University?


Auburn University is committed to improving the educational experience for future students who will follow in the footsteps of each graduating senior enrolled in the Creed to Succeed course. This course aids Auburn University in evaluating the strength of an Auburn education.


The results from the activities completed by students will be used to establish the weight of an Auburn degree in the eyes of prospective employers and admissions committees. Enrollment in this course also makes Auburn University aware that the student intends to graduate in the semester in which a student is enrolled in the course.

NATIONAL ALUMNI CAREER MOBILITY SURVEY

Auburn University has partnered with the Career Leadership Collective, a higher education solutions group, to conduct a national online survey to collect career pathway data from alumni.


The National Alumni Career Mobility (NACM) survey is seeking career satisfaction and insights from college and university alumni who completed an undergraduate or graduate degree at the 5-year and 10-year marks. For 2022, Auburn University will seek participation from the classes of 2012 and 2017.


The data collected by this survey will be used to help our institution better understand the professional pathways of our graduates and prepare future alumni for continued and improved career success.
