Application Process

Private high school graduates in Kuwait, as well as international high school graduates must secure the high school equivalency certification through the Kuwait Ministry of Education.

Note: Kuwait Ministry of Education-certified transcripts are never considered expired by AUK.

Once an applicant has been accepted, he/she is required to confirm attendance or intention of attending AUK by paying a non-refundable KD100 enrollment deposit which will be credited to the applicant’s first semester tuition amount.

All applicants (including scholarship students) must submit a non-refundable application-processing fee of KD35 with the application packet.

Applicants may enclose checks or money orders made payable to the American University of Kuwait in the application packet.

Cash payment can also be made through the AUK Finance Department, and then submit a copy of their cash receipt in the application packet.

NOTE: Packets received without the fee will not be processed or reviewed.
