It is generally expected that all students in the program will have graduate assistants or equivalent external funding. In steady state, there will be about 12 students on assistantships. The normal stipend will be augmented by funds from the Raymond J. Harbert foundation. We expect that our students will be relatively well funded. Students receiving Graduate Assistantship will have tuition waived.
Auburn University and the Department of Finance believe that all persons are entitled to equal opportunities, and do not discriminate against applicants to our graduate programs regardless of their race, religion, color, national origin, age, sex, or disabilities.
