Showcase AU

Showcase AU is your opportunity to experience American University firsthand. Most programs feature an overnight opportunity that begins on the afternoon of the first day. The overnight is entirely optional. 

Here are just some of the benefits of these programs:

  • Spend the night on campus with a current AU student (optional)
  • Hear from faculty about programs that interest you
  • Learn about academic programs, campus life, and special programs such as University College and Study Abroad
  • Tour the campus with a current AU student

Please note that overnight visits are limited to 50 students.

Parents are welcome to join students for Showcase AU programming the day following the overnight visit.

Upcoming Events

Information regarding these programs will be posted in September 2015.


Please use your prospective student portal to register for an overnight or Showcase AU event. (NOTE: Once you have registered for an overnight, you will automatically be registered for the corresponding Showcase. You will not need to complete a separate registration for the Showcase.)

After you register for an overnight, please return the Overnight Program Agreement and General Release form by e-mail or fax (202-885-6014) as soon as possible.
