Auburn University was established in 1856 as the East Alabama Male College, 20 years after the city of Auburn’s founding. In 1872, under the Morrill Act, the school became the first land-grant college in the South and was renamed the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Alabama. Today, Auburn is one of the few universities to carry the torch as a land, sea and space grant university. Our Fall 2012 semester enrollment was 25,134. Our students can choose from more than 140 degree options in 13 schools and colleges at the undergraduate, graduate and professional levels.

To be on assistantship, a graduate student must be in a degree-seeking program. The student must be registered in the Banner classification of MST, EDS, PHD, EDD, or GPR. A graduate student must satisfy the minimum course load specifications of the individual departments and be making satisfactory progress toward the degree. Graduate students may hold multiple assistantships and the assistantships may come from different units on campus, but together they cannot add up to more than a 100 percent appointment. Multiple assistantships for international graduate students cannot add up to more than a 50 percent work appointment.
