At Auburn, we recognize the importance of a quality education and are dedicated to helping you find a way to achieve your higher education goals. A number of scholarships are awarded annually by the Office of University Scholarships. In addition, departmental scholarships are awarded each year to new and current students by the various colleges on campus.
The Department of Education has planned significant changes to the 2024-2025 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which has resulted in a known delay in availability of the FAFSA from October to December 2023. To ensure students have sufficient time to complete the FAFSA and provide additional documentation if selected for verification, Auburn University is adjusting its timeline for consideration and notification of need-based aid, including scholarships, for the 2023-2024 academic year. The scholarship deadline will be March 1 for 2024-25 consideration and will return to February 1 for 2025-26 consideration. All dates and deadlines have been updated accordingly on the University Scholarships website. More information may be found here.
We know finding and applying for scholarships can be hard work. With the Auburn University Scholarship Opportunity Manager (AUSOM), it has never been easier. Through AUSOM, you can view available scholarships you may be eligible to receive, complete scholarship applications, accept your awards, and more. Students are only required to complete the AUSOM application once each academic year.
Dates and Deadlines
To ensure maximum consideration, it is imperative that students are knowledgeable of the specific deadlines associated with all scholarships awarded. Scholarships will be awarded to first-year students November to late March and to transfer and current students in late March.View all Dates & Deadlines

“Being a first-generation college student, I feel as if I am carrying the hopes and dreams of myself, my family, and everyone else from my hometown who believed in me along the way.

Tuition & Costs
The Auburn University Cost Calculator is designed to help you estimate your cost of attendance at Auburn University by calculating tuition, fees, and housing charges against financial aid awards for which you may qualify. The Auburn University Tuition Calculator will provide an estimate for your cost of tuition and fees based on your residency, student level and classification, college or academic program, and the number of hours for which you will be enrolled.
Proceeds from the sale of Auburn University license plates in Alabama help to fund scholarships. Also, when you use the official Auburn University credit card for everyday purchases, a contribution is made to Auburn's scholarship fund and you automatically earn cash back.
