Augusta University offers many programs and activities serving non-student minors. These may include camps, athletic clinics, after-school activities, research activities, healthcare educational opportunities, and others, some that are sponsored by Augusta University and others that are hosted by third-party entities.

The highest concern of Augusta University is protecting the safety of our visitors. The Minors on Campus policy, aligned with Board of Regents policy and expectations, ensures a safe and healthy environment for minors participating in programs at AU. The purpose of this website is to provide expectations, resources, and registration for programs involving minors.
