Financial Aid, Loans and Scholarships

The Auburn University Office of Student Financial Aid provides guidance to students who need financial aid in order to attend the University. The University believes that the amount of aid granted should be based on financial need. Pharmacy students seeking assistance are required to file an application for Federal Student Financial Aid annually. To request a Financial Aid Packet, please contact:

Auburn University Office of Student Financial Aid
203 Mary Martin Hall
Auburn University, AL 36849

If you wish to be considered for financial need, you must complete a FAFSA Free Application for Federal Student Aid and file it with the Auburn University Office of Financial Aid. Be sure to indicate on any forms that your student classification is "professional" student, NOT "undergraduate" student. Applications for aid should be completed in January or February of the year prior to the academic year in which the student will need assistance. Please note that this form may be completed and filed on line at studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa. To review other loan and scholarship resources available, please contact the Auburn Student Financial Aid Office or the Auburn Scholarship Office.

There are three principal types of financial assistance:


Scholarships are a form of financial assistance awarded to students who demonstrate high academic attainment and potential. Many scholarships require demonstration of financial need.

Incoming first-year students are reviewed for scholarships based on their PharmCas application. Criteria for scholarships includes, but is not limited to, academic success and residency.

These scholarships are awarded competitively and are based on available funding. Additional scholarships are available for current HCOP students. For more information on additional scholarships for current students, please review our scholarship page.


Federal Student Loans

Under the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan program, students pursuing their Doctor of Pharmacy degree may expect a loan offer of up to $33,000 for the combined Fall and Spring terms (up to $16,500 each term) OR the total Cost of Attendance (COA) minus all other aid/resources under your name (scholarships, waivers, etc), whichever is less. Interest on this loan begins to accrue at disbursement. Repayment begins six months after graduation or when a student is no longer enrolled at least half time (5 hours for graduate/professional students). The aggregate lifetime limit is $224,000. The aggregate lifetime limit includes amounts borrowed under the Federal Subsidized and Unsubsidized Direct Loan programs at both the undergraduate and graduate/professional levels.

If the maximum Unsubsidized loan does not meet your need (COA - Unsubsidized loan - Other aid), then you may apply for the credit‐based Federal Graduate PLUS Loan to supplement up to the COA. More information and instructions on applying can be found under Forms and Documents at www.auburn.edu/finaid.

If you include parental data on your FAFSA, you may also be considered for a Federal Health Professions Student Loan of up to $8,000 per academic year. Please note that although the FAFSA does not require parental data for professional students, you will need to include it to be considered for this type of loan. **Funds are limited in this program.

Non-Federal Alternative Loans

Should you choose not to pursue federal loans, you may wish to apply for a credit‐based Private Educational Loan (no FAFSA required). You may search for a private lender using your preferred search engine. Be sure to explore loan programs that are specifically for health professions students, as they may have more favorable interest rates and repayment terms.

Public Service Loan Forgiveness

Students interested in qualifying for Public Service Loan Forgiveness should utilize the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Help Tool available at http://studentloans.gov.


Students who have financial need may also obtain part-time employment within the University while attending classes. This program is federally funded.
