Tuition and Financial Aid


The American University of Armenia is committed to supporting all students in finding a means to finance their education.

For citizens of the Republic of Armenia and holders of Armenian special passports for special residency status, AUA provides an automatic subsidy off the total cost of their education. In addition, the University offers need-based tuition assistance to citizens of Armenia with demonstrated financial need that may discount the cost of education further by up to 90%.  There are also a limited number of scholarships available for academically gifted students.

International students are eligible for merit-based scholarships that may cover up to 50% of tuition. Citizens of Egypt, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Russia, and Syria are eligible for the Aurora Gratitude Scholarships, which may cover up to the full cost of tuition and in some cases provide housing and travel support.

Additional tools to support students in financing their education include installment payment plans, deferred payments, loans, and work-study programs. Visit for detailed information or contact a Financial Aid Counselor at for a personal consultation.



You should carefully consider the financing of your education at AUA from the time of admission to the completion of your degree. Students in degree programs sign a contract with AUA upon enrollment which establishes tuition for the duration of the contract. All fees are paid in AMD.
