Freshman Scholarships are awarded exclusively to incoming freshmen enrolling summer or fall immediately following high school graduation and are renewable for four years. Incoming freshmen accepted for admission must complete the scholarship application through the Auburn University Scholarship Opportunity Manager (AUSOM) by 4:45 p.m. CST on December 15.
Incoming freshmen with a minimum 3.5 high school GPA and a minimum 26 ACT score or equivalent SAT score as of the freshman scholarship deadline are more likely to receive a four-year merit scholarship based on academic achievement. The charts in the sections below provide estimated award amounts.
The minimum test score and high school GPA required for consideration must be reflected on the applicant record within AUSOM by December 15. Following receipt by Auburn, it may take up to three days before test scores and GPAs are updated in AUSOM.
For the purposes of awarding scholarships, the highest composite ACT or equivalent total SAT score from a single test date is used, and the writing score is not considered. Minimum academic requirements for scholarship consideration and award amounts are for students planning to enroll Summer or Fall 2020 and are subject to change for enrollment in future terms.
