PRE-SESSIONAL ENGLISH

In need of additional English courses before beginning at Auburn? Enroll in the Pre-Sessional English program.

Tuition per 16-week session: $7,300**

After successful completion of the Pre-Sessional English program, students will enter and pay tuition for the Extended Accelerator Program.

*Tuition, fees and costs may be subject to change and do not include additional expenses (books and general living expenses such as travel and entertainment).

**Pre-Sessional English program estimated cost does not include housing, food, or health insurance.

Note: The amount that students pay in tuition and required fees represents a sizeable and important investment in their future. However, student payments alone do not cover the full cost of providing any of Auburn’s educational programs. Even after state appropriations are included, some programs require funding through additional fees in order to provide a high-quality learning environment that students expect. Like the basic tuition and fees, these additional amounts help to cover not only the direct costs of providing instruction and advising in these programs but also indirect costs associated with Auburn’s role as a comprehensive center of higher education for the state. Tuition quoted for the Auburn Global does not include college-specific fees associated with declaring a major within a college. These college-specific fees are charged per semester once a student gains admission into that college.

Note: All Auburn Global pre-sessional and undergraduate students are required to live in an Auburn Global-assigned residence hall or apartment and to purchase the meal plan for the length of their time with Auburn Global.

International Direct subscoring for English proficiency is not required for admission but is recommended.

All students will take an English language assessment test during their orientation. This test is the primary means for final placement and could vary from the preliminary placement identified in your offer letter. As a result, the length of study may be longer than originally anticipated and involve additional costs including tuition and other fees.

*International Direct Students: Any prior post-secondary/university credits must be submitted at the time of application. Admission to International Direct will be based on freshman transfer requirements for students with less than 30 credit hours. Students with more than 30 credit hours will be assessed by transfer admissions requirements.

**AAP and EAP students: Any prior post-secondary/university credits must be submitted at the time of application. For students with fewer than 30 credit hours, high school transcripts must also be submitted for evaluation.
