Auburn University admissions application will open at http://www.auburn.edu/admissions/attention-applicants.html on August 15th. A completed application file will include the following:
- Completed admissions application on our website
- $50 application fee or application fee waiver
- Official ACT or SAT sent directly from the testing agency
- Official high school transcript from grades 9 – 11 (we look at weighted & cumulative GPA for both admissions and scholarship purposes)
Our admissions application will include 1 essay question and 2 short answer questions this year. Please stress to students the importance of this application. Admissions decisions WILL NOT be based solely off of GPA and test scores, and all application materials will be reviewed equally. It will be important for both high achieving and more borderline students (from a GPA and test score standpoint) to put quality time and effort into the application.
Our early action deadline will be November 1st. I would encourage most students interested in applying to Auburn to have all of their application materials submitted by this date. Our final application deadline will be February 3rd.
We will only be releasing two rounds of admissions decisions this year. The first will be released on December 1st. We will release acceptances, deferrals and denials at this time. The second and final round of admissions decisions will be released on March 2nd. Students who apply after November 1st or are deferred in the first round of decisions will have a final decision on March 2nd.
Once students are accepted for admission, they can complete our scholarship application. We call this AUSOM (Auburn University Scholarship Opportunity Manager). It’s essentially a “one-stop-shop” scholarship application that allows students to apply for every scholarship they’re eligible for (merit based, need based, general, departmental, etc…). Our merit based scholarships for students from the state of Alabama this year will be as follows:
- 3.5+ GPA & 26 – 27 ACT (1230 – 1290 SAT)
Estimated Annual Award Amount: $2,000 per year
- 3.5+ GPA & 28 – 29 ACT (1300 – 1350 SAT)
Estimated Annual Award Amount: $4,000 per year
- 3.5+ GPA & 30 – 32 ACT (1360 – 1440 SAT)
Estimated Annual Award Amount: $8,000 per year
- 3.5+ GPA & 33 – 36 ACT (1450 – 1600 SAT)
Estimated Annual Award Amount: Value of resident tuition per year
Students can complete the AUSOM scholarship application once they’re accepted for admission. The deadline to complete the scholarship application is December 15th. This will be the deadline for both the scholarship application and highest ACT/SAT score to be submitted.

I hope you all are doing great! As we approach the end of another school year, I just wanted to send out a few quick reminders. I have emailed your students with these reminders as well, but a little extra insurance never hurts to make sure they don’t miss any deadlines!
*If you have any students with financial situations preventing them, or making it difficult for them to submit this deposit, please have them contact me and I’ll be happy to look into a deposit waiver.*
If any of your students or their parents need assistance with anything, please don’t hesitate to have them contact me!
Zoo Weekend is Saturday and Sunday, March 23-24 and we still need volunteers to help make this the greatest Zoo Weekend ever. It takes approximately 100 volunteers per shift to have a successful and exciting event. Volunteers can be students*, corporate teams, church groups, civic groups, families and just anyone who wants to give back to the community in a fun, exciting and outdoor environment.
Shifts are from 8:00am-2:00pm and 1:00pm-6:30pm each day. Volunteers may serve one or multiple shifts, but they are expected to commit to serving the full duration of their shift(s).
Volunteers assist in a variety roles such as running children's games, taking ride and attraction tickets, selling extra game tickets, assisting the petting zoo, cleaning around the zoo and just helping make sure each and every guest has a wonderful time. Assignments may be requested but are NOT guaranteed as volunteers will be placed where there is the greatest need.
We are excited that Subway is our volunteer sponsor this year. With their support we will be provide lunch and drinks to all volunteers.
Please consider giving a few hours of your time to help make this annual event a continued success. Zoo Weekend is our largest fund raiser of the year and without your help the Zoo could not continue to grow, expand our animal collection or provide a fun, family attraction for over 200,000 people per year.
If you have any questions concerning volunteering during Zoo Weekend, please contact the Zoo at (334) 625-4900.
