Tuition will be calculated based on the student’s credit hours for each semester. Bills are generated upon class registration. Bills are due by the first day of the semester. Finance (interest) charges will apply to bills that are overdue. New tuition rates, catalog policies, and other “academic year” changes take effect with the start of each Fall semester. Please contact the Office of Student Accounts at email@example.com with any questions regarding your bill.
Tuition payments are made online via the myAU Portal. American University accepts Electronic Check and Credit Card (Visa, Master Card, or Discover Card only) payments. If you make your payment with a credit card, a non-refundable service fee will be added to the bill. The service fee is currently 2.55% of the total charge and is subject to change.

Students who receive a scholarship
at the time of their admission will be notified via their acceptance letter.
These are typically allotted on a per-credit basis, and therefore will not be
applied to student accounts until registration is finalized (typically two
weeks prior to the start of any semester). Please note, if you make any changes
to your schedule during the add/drop period, it may change your scholarship
amount. Allotments will be reconciled at the end of the full drop period (after
week four of each term). If you have questions about your scholarship, please
contact Colleen Brauer, Associate Director of Operations, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Financial aid may be available to students
on an individual basis. Once financial aid eligibility is finalized, it is the
responsibility of the student to complete all necessary disbursement
requirements (such as Master Promissory Notes and loan counseling) to ensure
funds are sent to American University to be credited toward a tuition balance.
Please note that all billing of tuition is handled by the main campus Student
Accounts and University Receivables (referred to as the Cashier’s Office). All
financial aid disburses directly to the Cashier’s Office to be credited toward any
outstanding tuition balance that is owed by the student. All students are
responsible for completing financial aid applications and disbursement
requirements in a timely fashion to ensure that their funds are available to
pay tuition by published due dates. For more information, contact Katherine
