Transferring to AU
American University is a diverse body of students, who represent all 50 states and 123 countries. Many of our students join us from other institutions, and bring a unique perspective to our community of changemakers. If you're looking for a school that will challenge you intellectually and provide you with access to one of the most international cities in the world, look no further.
Whether from COVID-19, the economic downturn, or natural disasters, we know that many families have been financially impacted by recent events. To that end, AU is offering application fee waivers to families in need. Visit our application fee waiver page for instructions on how to apply to AU without paying the $75 application fee.
