Money Matters

By using realistic estimates of the cost of your student’s education and planning ahead, you can make financial decisions that best suit your family. We want to help you find the answers you need so your student can concentrate on succeeding at Auburn and you can be confident knowing your son or daughter is getting an excellent education that fits your budget.

Staff members in the Office of Student Financial Services help students and their families with loans and grants, FAFSA information, and scholarships.
