Yes, at this point, AubieSat-1 is scheduled to launch on 25 October 11 as a secondary payload with the NASA NPP launch out of Vandenberg AFB, CA. It is current as of today, 18 September.
I have requested the students to prepare a message to be posted to AMSAT-BB to advise the particulars of the satellite. I would expect that it would be posted sometime this week.
The group at the Auburn University Student Space Program (AUSSP) would certainly appreciate the amateur space community's support to track and receive telemetry from the satellite.
Watch for a message to be posted later this week with details. AUSSP has some initial Keplerian element sets furnished by NASA that will be used for initial orbit predictions.

Subject: [amsat-bb] Aubiesat Launch in October ?
Gunter's space page currently lists Aubiesat and other CubeSats being lauched
October 25, on a Delta.
Clearly launch dates are always prone to slippage, does anyone know if that date
is still current ?
