1. Connect with an AIU Admissions Advisor.
The advisor will:
- Ask about your goals and interests
- Guide you through the admissions process
- Assist with answering your questions
- Provide information to help you choose a degree program
- Describe what to expect from your classes
- Explain the next steps to take
2. Complete the online application.
The online application is designed to be quick, and easy and there is no application fee. It takes 10-15 minutes to complete and our admissions advisors can guide you through the process if needed.
Be ready to tell us:
- Basic information about yourself
- Where you’ve gone to high school and/or college
- What degree program you’re interested in
If applicable, please also provide:
- College transcript
- Other written verification
3. Submit proof of high school graduation or equivalent as well as any college transcripts.
AIU will review earned credits from:
- U.S.-accredited international institutions
- Accredited Title-IV eligible institutions located abroad
- Credits evaluated by acceptable International Credential Evaluators
- Institutions accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education
You will have the opportunity to submit these documents during the online application process.
Have your school send the documentation directly to AIU’s Admissions office:
AIU Online | Administrative Center
231 Martingale Rd
Schaumburg, IL 60173
See our Transcript Evaluation for more details.
4. Provide proof of English proficiency.
If English isn’t your first language, you’ll need to show that you’re proficient in English before you’re admitted to AIU. You can do that by submitting either test scores or proof that you’ve completed certain coursework. (If you’re a native English speaker, you can ignore this step.)
See the English Proficiency page for full details.
5. Learn what prior learning credits you may be eligible to receive.
Although AIU will review transcripts from international post-secondary institutions for credential evaluation, students will need to consult with an external credential evaluation service on their own.
Because of the time it can take for an evaluation to be completed by one of the approved evaluation institutions, AIU recommends students begin the evaluation process at the time of enrollment.
6. Plan how you’ll pay for program costs.
Most types of financial aid in the U.S.—such as federal loans, grants and scholarships—require students to be U.S. citizens or legal residents.
Taking the time to learn about your options can help put an AIU education within reach.
At this time, we only offer federal financial aid assistance to eligible US citizens and eligible non-citizens.
AIU International Student Grant
Offered at Online, Atlanta, Houston
In recognition of the variation in local economic conditions around the world, AIU has established a grant in order to assist eligible international students from select countries interested in attending a degree program at AIU. To be eligible for the International Student Grant, a student must be referred by a third-party that has a written agreement with AIU, complete the eligibility attestation form, and allow for verification of eligibility, which may require the student to submit documentation confirming that they are a resident of an eligible country. Students who are eligible to receive Title IV funds are not eligible for this grant. Students must adhere to the AIU General Grant and Scholarship Conditions. The grant, which is subject to availability, is applied to tuition, fees and course materials and will be awarded proportionately over each applicable academic year. Tuition grant percentages may vary by country. Interested students should contact the Education Alliances Center at AIUEducationalAlliances@aiuniv.edu to determine the grant percentage for which they may qualify.
AIU does not do business in the European Union (EU) and does not accept applications from EU residents seeking to enroll at the University.
