Auburn University will be with us Wednesday 10/3 at 10:30. Auburn is widely recognized for the quality of its undergraduate, graduate and professional educational programs, the effectiveness of its research and outreach programs and the broad access to the University provided through the innovative use of information technology.  TIGER OR WAR EAGLE: The To get right to the point, Auburn's only nickname is the Tigers. We're the Auburn Tigers. Auburn has been known as the Tigers since the university first fielded a football team in 1892 to play the Georgia Bulldogs in Atlanta. “War Eagle” is Auburn's battle cry. Auburn has never referred to any of its teams as “Eagles” or “War Eagles.” To the Auburn Family, it's very simple. We are the Tigers who yell “War Eagle!”

1) What GPA and ACT score do you need just to be admitted? Answer: A 2.85 GPA and 18 ACT score OR a 2.5 GPA and 21 ACT score but these scores get you NO UTC SCHOLARSHIP MONEY. BUT GUESS HOW MUCH Scholarship money you automatically receive if you have: 2) 3.2 GPA and 22 ACT? (answer $6500) 3) 3.4 GPA and 25 ACT?  (answer $7500) 4) 3.75 GPA and 29 ACT? (answer $8500) Note: annual tuition is about $8900 so this is a HUGE chunk toward it. 5) How many times can you take the ACT? (Answer: a whopping 12 times!, Not suggesting they do this, point is most people do better the more they take it, you should definitely take it several times before November of your senior year) POINT TO DRIVE HOME: Your future is wide open, is just takes some PLANNING. We are here to help you reach that 10 year goal.
