MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

On Friday the NCAA advanced Auburn University at Montgomery to year two of the Division II membership process.

"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."

The process takes three years. In year two, AUM will compete as a provisional member of the Gulf South Conference but will not be eligible for any postseason play at both the conference and NCAA levels.

"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. 

If AUM is approved for year three in 2018-19, they will move to through the final steps before becoming a full-time member of the Gulf South Conference with conference and NCAA postseason eligibility in the 2019-20 season.
