Plus, you have a large support network by your side from start to finish, from a dedicated admissions rep and personal advisor to instructors and career center manager.

Get a Private Education Without the High Costs!

At AAU, we understand that earning your degree may seem out of reach due to budget concerns. Our students had those same concerns too. In fact, a vast majority of our students are currently working, have families to care for, everyday responsibilities and tight budgets. However, the desire to achieve more and to secure a more lucrative future, paired with AAU's affordable tuition, have proven to be a powerful combination in encouraging our students that meeting their goals is possible.

Take a moment and learn how AAU's cost of attendance compares with other universities.

Effective with the 2013-2014 school year, the U.S. Department of Education has established new regulations to prevent fraud and abuse in the Federal Pell Grant Program by identifying students with unusual enrollment histories. Some students who have an unusual enrollment history have legitimate reasons for their enrollment at multiple institutions. However, such an enrollment history requires a review to determine whether there are valid reasons for the unusual enrollment history. This must be resolved before you will receive financial aid.
