When AU moved to online learning in March, we recognize that you and your student adapted quickly. We truly appreciate your understanding of that difficult but important decision. While this year is different than anyone imagined, AU is committed to delivering a world-class education, no matter the location or modality.

As you likely know, the AU experience goes beyond the cost of tuition alone, from internships, to outside-the-classroom pursuits, to responding to the unexpected. You can help enhance the student experience by making a gift to the Parent Fund, which allows our Eagles to take advantage of all that AU has to offer.

This year, President Burwell calls on the generosity of AU parents to join her in helping students thrive. Read President Burwell's message.
