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 €500, thus making full tuition €28,820. Yearly payments may not begin during the spring semester.

Students receiving financial aid (AUP Tuition Awards or AUP Scholar Awards) are not eligible for this tuition reduction. 

Tuition and fees for students on the yearly payment plan:

  Fall 2017 due 15 July Spring 2018 2017-2018 Academic Year

Total (in Euros) €29,673 0 €29,673

*Health fees are subject to minor changes.
This does not include course fees and cultural programs, nor the one-time orientation fee of 450€ for new students.

 

Semester Payment Plan

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

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