Scholarships and Loans

AUPP has several scholarships and loan programs:

Scholarships

From Fall 2017 students who achieve grade A from the National High School Exam receive, on admission, a scholarship of USD 3,000 over the entire four-year Bachelor degree (five years for Architecture) program including for summer semester and for the English preparatory program.

From Fall 2017 students who achieve grade B from the National High School Exam receive, on admission, a scholarship of USD 2,000 over the entire four-year Bachelor degree (five years for Architecture) program including for summer semester and for the English preparatory program.

The scholarship does not cover the dual degree program additional fee for which a loan is available. Students who receive a scholarship on admission and subsequently enroll in a dual degree program must pay the additional fee of USD 4000 in two installments. This additional fee is payable on confirmation of enrolment into the dual degree program. Students may apply for a loan, with a 5% interest per annum.

Students must have completed their application to AUPP, and must have accepted AUPP offer of admission before applying for scholarships.  Applications that are incomplete or with missing documents will not be considered.

Students who are eligible for scholarships based on National Exam score of A or B must submit a Scholarship Application Form to apply for the scholarship, and submit a certified copy of the National Exam Score report.   The Scholarship Application Form will be provided to applicants after he/she has accepted the AUPP offer of admission.

Students with outstanding academic records who did not take the national examinations may be eligible for scholarship considerations on a discretionary case by case basis, based on financial need.  Students are required provide evidence of financial need to be considered and submit an official transcript.

Students on scholarship are required to take a full load of not less than 15 credits each semester.  Approval to take fewer than 15 credits must be obtained from the Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs.

Students retain their scholarship for the entire course of study at AUPP in the Fall, Spring or Summer semester, including for the English Preparatory Program.  The student must maintain a both a semester and cumulative grade point average equivalent to a B grade (GPA of 3.00 or higher) each semester.  With the exception of the Summer Semester, Scholarship students whose grade point average falls below 3.00 in any one semester will be placed on warning for termination of the scholarship.  A student will need to achieve a grade point average of at least 3.00 the following semester and have a cumulative GPA sufficient to make an overall 3.00 or higher to retain the scholarship.  The Board of Trustees has the authority to make exceptions in extenuating circumstances.

Scholarship awards may not be transferred, deferred or en-cashed.  Students awarded AUPP scholarships must declare to AUPP any other scholarship(s) they are receiving at the same time from another institution.

Loan Program

AUPP has established a self-funded loan program for students who do not qualify for scholarship or financial aid.

In addition to Scholarship and Financial Aid, students who demonstrate financial need can seek a loan up to USD 2,000 each academic year, or USD 1,000 each semester.

A student/family must pay at least 40% of the semester tuition and the University will provide a loan for up to 60%.

The student is required to pay the interest for each respective semester at 5%.

Loans cover the cost of study in the dual degree programs and the English preparatory program.

The student/family signs a loan agreement that they will repay the loan upon getting a job at the rate of 50% of their salary a month until the loan is repaid.  If a student cannot find a job, the University may try to assist.

After the first semester in their first year, the student will be eligible to work at the university to earn money to help pay the interest.

The University will hold the graduation diploma until the loan is repaid in full.
