Application Fee

The non-refundable application fee must be sent with the application form. For more information, consult the AUP website

Non-Refundable Tuition Deposit

Upon acceptance by the University, new students are required to pay a non-refundable deposit that is credited toward the first semester's tuition. The deposit will not be returned if students confirm and then fail to attend. New students will receive invoices once they pay the confirmation deposit and select their payment plan. 

Orientation Fee

The orientation fee covers all activities that occur during the orientation program of a student's first semester including academic advising, course registration, workshops, cultural activities, and materials. 

Health Insurance

The University is legally responsible for ensuring that all full-time students (except non-degree seeking part-time students) have adequate health insurance coverage. Students are automatically enrolled in, and billed for, the comprehensive and mandatory plan arranged for by the University unless the student has family living in Paris and provides proof of private comprehensive health insurance coverage valid in France, which includes medical coverage equivalent to AUP’s Student Health Care Plan. The documents required to opt out of the health insurance can be found on the Health & Wellness page. These documents must be resubmitted every year to the Health Care Coordinator within the first two weeks of classes; no exceptions will be made. Documents received after this date will not be accepted and students will be charged the full price for health insurance. If a student’s health insurance changes during the course of study at AUP, he/she is responsible for notifying the Health Care Coordinator of such a change. 

Cultural Programs

Students may elect to participate in cultural programs for which there are additional fees. For information, please see the Cultural Programs page.

Course Fees

Certain courses have fees attached to cover museum entrance, lab fees, software costs, etc. The course catalog mentions which courses have fees. 

Late Payment Fee

A €250 late payment fee will be charged for any tuition received after the payment deadlines. 

Overdue, Lost, or Damaged Library Materials

Students are responsible for library materials borrowed with their AUP student identification card. Fees are charged for damaged, lost or unreturned materials at the end of each semester. Unpaid overdue fines block further loans; fines will be charged to student accounts and holds will be applied. 

Interest Charges and Collection Fees

Student accounts are charged interest at the rate of 1% per month on any outstanding balance starting at the end of the semester after a student has left AUP. 

Delinquent Student Accounts

Delinquent student accounts may be sent to a collection agency for recovery. The collection agency will charge a fee of up to 35% on any unpaid balance. 

Non-Payment of Tuition and Fees 

Student Accounting Services reserves the right to cancel a student’s registration in the event of non-payment.
