AUA practices holistic admissions. We select students who have the skills and ability to succeed at AUA and to assure that AUA is well suited to their educational and career goals. Once you submit your application, it is screened for technical eligibility. If eligible, the Academic Program Admissions and Graduate Admissions Committees conduct a thorough review of your application, which may include inviting you to an interview.
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 Armenian Dram (AMD).
