Financial Assistance

Tuition and Fees

Cost of attendance includes tuition, registration and student services fees, books and supplies, room and board, transportation, and personal expenses. Learn more about estimated tuition and costs at Auburn University Student Financial Services.

Flight Lab Course Fees

Flight lab courses have an associated flight fee established by the Department of Aviation prior to the start of the academic year. Flight fees cover aircraft, flight simulation, flight instructor, and FAA knowledge exam fees. The training hours and fees outlined in the Auburn University Bulletin are the minimum to complete a flight lab course. Students requiring additional instruction will incur additional flight lab fees. Unexpected large changes in fuel prices may necessitate the addition of a fuel surcharge for all training airplane usage.

Undergraduate Scholarships and Awards

Information regarding the scholarship application process and deadlines is available on the university scholarship page. All students must apply through the Auburn University Scholarship Opportunity Manager (AUSOM).

 

A list of public scholarships for aviation students is available through ALPA’s Cleared to Dream website. Auburn University is a member of the University Aviation Association (UAA), as well as the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), which both offer assistance in connecting students with scholarship opportunities.

Veteran's Benefits

As a land-grant university, Auburn University has always had a military affiliation. Auburn’s flight education program was initially established to train civilian pilots for service in the Army Air Corps during World War II. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Post 9/11 GI Bill® will cover flight course fees in accordance with the bill’s provision and the individual veteran’s benefits, but only to the extent to cover the minimum required hours of training and any mandatory fees. 

Auburn University’s Veterans Resource Center is a great asset for veterans transitioning from military to civilian life on a college campus.
