Next Steps

Read the Housing Application and License Agreement

Carefully read the Housing Application and License Agreement. This is considered a legal, binding contract, and includes a number of important provisions of which students (and parents) should be aware. For instance, if you do not notify Housing and Dining Programs by a specific date that you will not attend American University and/or live on-campus, you may be subject to a significant cancellation charge. Please see our License Agreement for more details.  

Sign and Submit the Housing Application and License Agreement

After fully reading the Housing Agreement, complete the online Enrollment and Housing Application.

By signing the application, you indicate that you have read and understand the terms and conditions of the Housing License Agreement and agree to be bound by them.

New incoming Freshman and Transfer Students: Send your $600.00 non-refundable tuition ($400.00) and housing ($200.00) prepayments with your Enrollment Agreement, directly to the Office of Admissions. Housing preference will be given to early decision freshman who submit their prepayments by February 1, and to regular admission freshman and transfer students who submit their prepayments by May 1. All other housing applications will be considered on a space-available basis.
