First Year Abroad and Visiting Students

Welcome First Year Abroad and visiting students! The advisors in the ACE Center look forward to supporting you as you figure out how to maximize your experience with us here in Paris, both academically and for your professional development. 


Arrival and Planning 

The staff advisors in the ACE Center are your point people when it comes to sorting out your academic plans for your time at The American University of Paris. We will register you into your courses, help you solve problems, and, most importantly, ensure that your course selection is in alignment with your academic goals. In addition, it is our office that manages the formal articulation of courses and communication regarding academic planning with the universities associated with our First Year Abroad students. For example, we update these advising pages for USCTulane, and GW First Year Abroad students every semester. 


While You’re Here 

Whether you are with us at AUP for one or two semesters (or longer), the staff advisors in the ACE Center will be available to guide you. In fact, all students at AUP have an assigned official advisor, and yours will be someone in the ACE Center. You can seek us out to ask all manner of questions pertaining to your academic planning, and we can help you troubleshoot other issues as well. Your advisor is a person you can count on to support you if you have a problem that needs solving. We may not have all the answers, but we generally know who does, and we are dedicated to connecting you with the abundant support and resources available here at AUP. 


Departure (Or Choosing to Stay)

As you prepare to leave AUP, you may have questions about when and how you will be able to access your final grades and transcripts, or you may seek support in completing a transfer application from our career team. We are happy to help. However, you may find that AUP has become your home away from home and decide to stay and finish your studies here. If you do, we can help you understand what steps you need to take, beginning with submitting this form if you are a visiting student or this form if you are a First Year Abroad student
