There are three steps:
While we accept applications year-round, we strongly advise prospective students to apply for Fall admission, especially if financial support is an issue. New teaching assistantships are rarely available in the Spring and never in the Summer. Moreover, most of our graduate-level courses are taught in year-long sequences starting in the Fall; and extensive orientation sessions for new students are offered at the beginning of the Fall semester, but not at other times during the year. Applications for Fall admission are screened in February; admission and financial-support decisions are usually finalized in early March. To receive full consideration, applications need to be complete by January 31.
All applicants must take the GRE and have the official test results sent to the Graduate School, but the subject test is NOT required.
International students with a degree from an American or Canadian university in a province other than Quebec do not need to take the TOEFL.
Auburn does require the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) to be taken. (Successful international applicants must score at least 550 on the TOEFL paper version (pBT), 213 on the computer version (cBT), and 79 on the internet version (iBT). Additionally, successful applicants must score minimums of 16 on the listening, reading, speaking, and writing components of the iBT. Auburn University's ETS institution code is 1005.)
We will accept a TOEFL score providing Auburn University receives an official copy from ETS before the expiration date of your test.
Auburn will also accept a 6.5 on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam.
International graduate teaching assistants (GTAs) must have a minimum score of 50 on the Test of Spoken English (TSE) to be eligible to teach at Auburn. New GTAs are expected to achieve this qualification within a year of arriving at Auburn. A score of at least 23 on the speaking section of the iBT TOEFL is accepted as equivalent qualification. Alternatively, this requirement may be met by completing the course INTL-1820, Classroom Communication Skills for International GTAs, with an acceptable grade.

From time to time, faculty members have grants that can pay graduate students, but they are usually reserved for students engaged in their doctoral research.
The internationally known faculty of around fifty (50) professors work in areas of applied mathematics, pure mathematics, and statistics; some pursue interdisciplinary mathematics. Specifically, areas studied include
