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.
AUA offers 4-year undergraduate degrees in Business, English and Communications, Computer Science, Engineering Sciences, and Data Science. Starting Fall 2021, AUA will also launch a Politics and Governance degree. All programs are offered as part of a liberal arts education to assure that graduates are specialists and well-rounded individuals who can think critically and creatively, learn independently, understand different thought processes, work collaboratively, and communicate effectively with people from different cultures and disciplines.
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 admission to AUA is competitive, the committee will consider both academic and personal information including educational background, official entrance exam scores, extracurricular and volunteer experience, essays, and an interview, if applicable.
