Auburn University Scholarship Opportunity Manager
How do students receive scholarship consideration?
Admitted incoming students and current students can apply for all institutional scholarships, including Freshman Scholarships, General Scholarships, and Departmental Scholarships, by completing the Auburn University Scholarship Opportunity Manager (AUSOM) application within AU Access. Students are only required to complete the AUSOM application once each academic year.
How do students log into AUSOM?
AUSOM can be found within AU Access on Admitted Students for incoming students and on My Finances for incoming students who have submitted the confirmation deposit and current students. Students use their AU Access User Name and Password to log in. The User Name is provided in the acceptance for admission letter for incoming students, and account activation is required prior to login.
An error message is received when logging into AUSOM through AU Access. Why is AUSOM inaccessible?
When accessing AUSOM through secure home, office, or school networks, a firewall may block or prevent access. It may be helpful to access AUSOM through a network and/or computer in another location.
What is the deadline to submit a scholarship application?
Incoming students accepted for admission must complete the scholarship application through AUSOM by 4:45 p.m. CST on December 1 to receive consideration for Freshman Scholarships and General Scholarships awarded by the Office of University Scholarships, as well as Departmental Scholarships awarded by Auburn's colleges and schools. Current Auburn students must apply through AUSOM by 4:45 p.m. CST on March 1 to receive consideration for General Scholarships and Departmental Scholarships. Incoming transfer students accepted to the Nursing professional program, as well as current Auburn students accepted to the Nursing or Veterinary Medicine professional program or enrolled in the Pharmacy professional program must complete the scholarship application through AUSOM by 4:45 p.m. CST on June 1 to receive Departmental Scholarship consideration. Students are encouraged to review Scholarship Dates & Deadlines to ensure maximum scholarship consideration based on student type.
Which questions should students complete?
In addition to completing the required fields, students are encouraged to complete the application to the fullest extent to maximize scholarship consideration.
What are Supplemental Applications?
Supplemental Applications appear to students who must answer additional questions to receive consideration for Departmental Scholarships and are based on the student's major. However, students should only complete the questions that pertain to the academic major studying or planning to study. Students are encouraged to complete all Supplemental Applications as well as the General Application. Within the General Application, students have an opportunity to indicate interest in receiving consideration for certain special interest scholarships, which also requires completion of a Supplemental Application.
What are Recommended Opportunities?
In some cases, General Scholarships awarded by the Office of University Scholarships and Departmental Scholarships awarded by the college or school in which enrolled or planning to enroll require additional information specific to individual scholarships. Students are encouraged to review the suggested list of these Recommended Opportunities and provide any information requested to receive further consideration for those scholarships.
How do students receive confirmation of their application submission?
Students who submit an application receive a confirmation email to their TigerMail account. Complete and submitted applications are indicated by “Complete” on the Applications tab within AUSOM. Students who have an incomplete General Application will be directed there upon login until complete.
