Summer Financial Aid information

The American University of Paris does not offer any financial aid to visiting students for the summer.

Non-AUP students (with U.S. nationality or U.S. permanent residency) who are degree-seeking at institutions that can certify and administer U.S. federal loans may be able to use them for AUP's summer program. You will need to contact the Financial Aid Office at your home institution in order to determine your eligibility for federal student aid. If needed, the AUP Financial Aid Office can complete a consortium agreement, but it must originate from your home institution. 

U.S. citizens and permanent residents who qualify may apply for a private Sallie Mae Smart Option Loan for all legitimate educational and living expenses during a summer program at AUP. This option also applies to non-degree seeking students. Please note that federal regulations prohibit AUP from administering U.S. federal loans (Subsidized or Unsubsidized Stafford or PLUS loans) for any student not working toward an AUP degree during the AUP summer program.

Current AUP students who are receiving an institutional financial award are eligible to receive this award for summer classes. The amount of the award will be adjusted (pro-rated) depending on the number of registered credits that the student is carrying.

As a U.S. student, you can continue to receive your U.S. loans as long as you are carrying a minimum 6-credit course load during the summer semester.
