Undergraduate Payment plan options


The American University of Paris is sensitive to the financial pressure that may arise over the payment of each semester’s tuition. As a result, the University has developed three payment plans to meet different students’ needs. Under all plans tuition must be paid in full before classes begin. These options are available only to full-time students.

Yearly payment plan

Full-time students may chose to pay for a full academic year (fall and spring semesters) before the start of the Fall semester. Payment must be received by 15 July . Students using this plan benefit from a tuition reduction of €540, thus making full tuition €26,680.

Students receiving financial aid (AUP Tuition Awards or AUP Scholar Awards) are not eligible for this tuition reduction. Yearly payments may not begin during the spring semester.

Tuition and fees for students on the yearly payment plan:


  Fall 2015 due 15 july  Spring 2016  2015-2016 Academic Year

Total (in Euros) €27,525 €0 €27,525
 

* The health fees are subject to minor changes.
This does not include course fees and cultural programs, nor the one-time orientation fee of 420€ for new students.


 

Semester payment plan

Full-time students may opt to pay one-half of the annual amount of tuition prior to the start of each semester.  Payment must be received on or before the following dates for each semester: 

Fall 2015 - July 15
Spring 2016 - December 15
Summer 2016 - April 30

If payment is not received by the deadline students are charged a €250 late payment fee. Students or their Financial Responsible Person (FRP) need to contact the Student Accounting Services Office before the deadline date or course registration may be cancelled. Note that all American citizens borrowing U.S. federal loans are automatically on a semester payment plan.

Tuition

Full-time tuition

Full time undergraduate tuition for 2015-16 is €13,610 per semester. Tuition is the same whether students enroll in three or four courses per semester (12-18 credits). Full time tuition includes the cost of student activities, academic support and housing services. Course overloads of 19 to 22 credits may be requested: once approved and registered, they are charged on a per-credit basis, in addition to full time tuition. For 2015-16 undergraduate credits cost €850 per credit. Full time undergraduates may also audit one additional course at no charge. As noted in the course catalog certain courses may also have a fee attached. 

Information about the undergraduate overall cost of attendance is available from the financial aid office.

Part-time tuition

Part time students are those taking a course load of 11 credits or fewer. Part time tuition is determined on a per-credit basis; for 2015-16 part time tuition is €850 per credit. Non-degree part time students must pay in full before registering for classes.

Auditor fee

Auditors pay 50% of the per-credit fee. As tuition for 2015-16 is €850 per credit, the auditor rate is €425 per credit.

Payment Deadlines

Tuition for the Fall semester must be received by 15 July and for the Spring semester by 15 December unless other arrangements have been made. Students will not be allowed in classes if tuition has not been received.  Payment Procedures provides information about how to pay.
