Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
I'm out of state so its rather expensive for me, but with everything they offer its really great. The new student union has a lot in it and there is plenty of free tutoring if you get stuck on something.
Marissa from Stafford, VA
I am paying out of state tuition. So from my angle it is a bit pricey. However, that is what I get for going out of my state for college. The instate price is very manageable and is completely worth it. You will not find a better place to spend your integral four (or more) years at college, than at Auburn University.
Colin from alpharetta, GA
As is with all universities tuition is a little steep, but with all the free resources available its worth the price. Plus you get professors that know what they are doing and enjoy teaching.
Christopher from Addison, AL
Let's be honest: It's expensive for an out-of-state student. I'm not gifted by any stretch of the imagination, so I have to work hard. I didn't receive many scholarships so I'm on grants and loans right now. 30,000 some-odd dollars is a big hurdle, but it's surely worth it.
Devin from Conyers, GA
I'm an out of state student, so my tuition is pretty high. There are plenty of financial aid and scholarships offered through Auburn to help out. Instate is really low and probably an amazing bang for your buck. I would visit campus and ask as many questions as you can think of before you commit. You can also find many great scholarships offered by Cappex and other similar sites.
Jennifer from Snellville, GA
I believe Auburn is worth every penny. I was awarded a scholarship, but I still had to take out student loans. It's worth it, because Auburn is incredible.
Laura from Madison, AL
Auburn gives out a lot of money for Merit Scholarships each year. I believe you only need a 28 ACT and a 3.5 GPA, and you are eligible for a scholarship! For out of state students Auburn is pretty expensive, but in state I believe is next to nothing!
Marisa from Ocean View, DE
You do receive a ton of rewards for your money. The tiger transit is very nice, and the tutoring services are great.

Many times you'll see something and people will say 'Oh, it's covered in your tuition'.
Jessica from Mobile, AL
Auburn is by far the best bang for your buck! I was offered scholarships to a few other schools and Auburn was still cheaper. You get an amazing education for a small college price. Auburn has raised tuition since a started school but the university has also risen in the rankings both over all and individual programs.
