Financial Aid & Scholarships

Faculty, staff and donors of the College of Education recognize that our students are competent, committed and reflective individuals who have excelled during their academic and pre-professional careers. The COE presented over 190 scholarships/graduate awards for the 2013-2014 academic year.

The College of Education provides Departmental Scholarships to eligible students through the new Auburn University Scholarship Opportunity Manager (AUSOM). Students can easily search, review requirements, apply, and accept awards for available scholarship opportunities. Interested students can apply for all institutional scholarships using this online application. The application deadline is March 1. Students are only required to complete the AUSOM application once each academic year. For more information and updates about AUSOM, please visit

While some of our undergraduate scholarships are based solely on merit; others are based on leadership and financial need. We encourage everyone to complete the free application for federal student aid (FAFSA) which is required for consideration to scholarships based on financial need. In order to be considered for need-based scholarships, your FAFSA must be processed and received by the Auburn University Office of Student Financial Aid on or before the priority deadline of March 1. Completion of the FAFSA is required each calendar year for consideration for need-based scholarship opportunities.

The FAFSA is the only form a student is required to complete to be considered for student assistance from any of the Title IV, HEA programs except for information needed to ensure the student’s eligibility for such assistance (e.g., information needed to complete verification or to demonstrate compliance with the student eligibility provisions of the HEA and the regulations). Additional information, if requested, will be listed on the student’s Tiger I Financial Aid Requirements page after the student’s FAFSA results are received.

The awarding of assistantships and fellowships for graduate students are handled through individual departments within the College of Education. Please contact your appropriate department head to inquire about graduate award opportunities. University-level fellowships, assistantships, research grants and financial aid are also available to graduate students through the Graduate School.

External opportunities for graduate students currently include:

Cost of Attendance
We recognize that the cost of attending college is an investment in your future. To better understand and anticipate the costs of attending Auburn University, Student Financial Services in the Auburn University Business Office provides a comprehensive list of tuition and fees for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as other financial information and forms of possible interest to prospective students and their families. Auburn University also offers estimated cost calculators on their Money Matters page.  Beginning their junior year, all College of Education students are charged a yearly fee for professional liability insurance.

Additional funding opportunities, including university scholarships, federal financial aid and on-campus work study, are outlined online by the Auburn University Office of Financial Aid.  

Creating New Scholarship Opportunities
The college's Office of Development offers information about creating a new scholarship or expanding the opportunities to our students through an existing scholarship.
