Admissions

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 offered admission to the American University of Kuwait, the applicant is required to confirm his/her intention to attend AUK. To confirm attendance and to reserve a seat in the entering class, the applicant must pay a non-refundable KWD 100 enrollment deposit. Tuition deposits are to be paid directly to the AUK Finance Department. The deposit will be credited to the applicant’s first semester tuition amount.

If the enrollment deposit is not received by the AUK Finance Department, admitted students will not be allowed to participate in the Student Advisement and Registration program (SAR). Admitted students that fail to pay the enrollment deposit may lose the opportunity to register for classes.

All applicants, including scholarship students, are required to pay a non-refundable application-processing fee of KWD 35 with the application packet. Packets received without the fee will not be processed or reviewed. Only fees paid by check or money order made payable to the American University of Kuwait may be enclosed in the application packet envelope. If students wish to pay cash, they may do so at the AUK Finance Department and then submit a copy of their cash receipt with the application packet.
