Fees and Student Finances

All students are responsible for payment of their fees.  Students who are on any form of scholarship such as the PUC must provide all needed documents to the college to confirm their scholarship.

Any self-funded student must pay fees according to the published deadlines.

AU offers a limited number of Academic Scholarships and Financial Assistance towards Fees (Bursaries). Click here for further information with regard to AU Academic Scholarships and Bursaries.

Payment methods

Students may pay their tuition fees by following the steps outlined in the How to – Pay Online document through myPortal using their Debit (K-Net) or Credit (VISA or MASTER) Cards.

Payment Terms

  1. Registration Fee – A minimum of KD 750/- for college students (KD 1,000/- for Foundation students) must be paid ahead of the registration period.
  2. After registration, the student shall pay the remaining tuition fees of the semester through one of the following ways:
  3. Students who, due to any financial issue, have difficulties in paying on time, may request an exception by sending an email to Finance@au.edu.kw.

The AU Finance Department will place students who fail to meet their financial obligations to AU on Stop-List. A ‘Stop’ prevents students from, among other things; accessing their online results; requesting and collecting their AU transcripts; obtaining “To Whom It May Concern” Letters and registering for future classes.

Registration Fees

AU student is entitled for a refund of registration fees if, and only if, the student is fully sponsored by sponsors (i.e. PUC, MOD, CSC, etc.) after making the registration payment to the university.

In case a student has paid the registration fees and did not register, the student is entitled for a refund of 60% of the paid registration fees.

Once a student is registered, the registration fees become non-refundable.

Tuition Fees

Tuition fees paid over the non-refundable registration fees are refundable if the student dropped units or cancelled the registration before the census date (last day to drop units).

In case the student applied for any of the listed withdrawal types, suspended or expelled, no refund will be allowed, and the full tuition fees of the semester will be due.

Please refer to AU Withdrawal Policy document.
