Tuition, Fees, & Scholarships
The amount that students pay in tuition and required fees represents a sizeable and important investment in their future. However, student payments alone do not cover the full cost of providing any of Auburn¹s educational programs. Even after state appropriations are included, some programs require funding through additional fees in order to provide the high-quality learning environment that students expect. Like the basic tuition and fees, these additional amounts help to cover not only the direct costs of providing instruction and advising in these programs but also indirect costs associated with Auburn’s role as a comprehensive center of higher education for the state.
Auburn University tuition and fees may vary slightly from year to year. Please view Admissions: Money Matters for the most up-to-date tuition costs. For those students seeking Financial Aid please view Student Financial Services.
As a professional school, the Harbert College of Business charges a professional fee
in addition to the standard university fees. This fee ensures that Harbert College students
have the best available career guidance and placement services.
All undergraduate students enrolled in the pre-business curriculum as well as those who have declared a major within the Harbert College will be charged the professional fee. Students seeking a business minor will not be charged this professional fee. Rates are as follows:
|Class Standing||Fall and Spring
(0-29 semester hours)
(30-59 semester hours)
(60-89 semester hours)
(90 or more semester hours)
The college has proposed a professional fee increase of 10 percent with future changes tied to university tuition rates to ensure students continue to receive high quality career guidance and placement services. If approved by Auburn University's Board of Trustees, the 10 percent increase would take effect in Fall 2016.
