The American University of Armenia accepts applications from students looking to enter their freshman year (first year) of University as well as from students looking to transfer from other universities.

AUA practices holistic admissions – we are looking for students who succeed on and off campus.

At AUA, the decision to offer a student admission is never based on just one factor. We always look at academic credentials, exam scores, extracurricular and volunteer activities, and more.

Selection Process and the AUA Student Profile

AUA practices holistic admissions. We select students who have the skills and ability to succeed in their studies and for whom AUA is well suited to their educational and career goals. Once you submit your application, it is screened for technical eligibility. If eligible, the Undergraduate Admissions Committee will then conduct a thorough review of your application, which may include inviting you to an interview. Once your application is complete, you will receive notification of your admission status by email up to 12 weeks after the application deadline date.

As admissions to AUA is competitive, the committee will consider both academic and personal information including educational background, official entrance exam scores, extracurricular and volunteer experience, a personal statement, and the interview, if applicable.

Military Deferment

We are updating our policies and procedures related to military deferment as a result of the recent adoption of the Law of the Republic of Armenia on Military Service and Status of Military Serviceman. Please check back later for more information. The below is information related to AUA’s practice of Military Deferment prior to this change in law.

The Ministry of Education and Science will notify AUA of the total number of military deferment spots allocated for our undergraduate students by May 2018.

As the number of military deferment spots is  limited, the process of receiving military deferment is competitive.
