The Aylwin class was a class of four destroyers in the United States Navy; all served during World War I and were scrapped in 1935.

All four ships were built by William Cramp and Sons in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The ships were built concurrently with the Cassin class and are sometimes considered to be in that class.
