The Financial Aid Office at American University of Health Sciences is here to assist students to achieve their dreams, their ambitions, their career and lifelong educational goals.
The purpose of financial aid is to assist those students who, without such aid, might not be unable to attend AUHS. The primary responsibility for meeting the costs of education rests with individual students and their families. Financial aid funds are available to supplement whatever funds students and their families can reasonably provide. Students should complete the financial aid application upon enrollment, and they will be notified of funding by financial aid administrator. Students may qualify for student loans and/or grants, depending upon the information that the student provides. Conversations concerning financial aid, including the amount of any financial aid or a payment schedule, will only be conducted with student finance personnel.
Eligibility and disbursements of financial aid may change based on enrollment status each quarter. Because of federal financial aid regulations (excluding Pell), students whose enrollment status is less than half-time will have no financial aid eligibility for that quarter. Due to these eligibility requirements, it is important that students work with student affairs office to ensure full-time enrollment status each quarter. A change from full-time enrollment status could cause a loss of financial aid eligibility and create a cash pay situation for some students. Please consult a financial aid administrator with any questions regarding enrollment status and financial aid eligibility.
There are indirect costs while attending higher learning education. As an example, the following is an estimate of these costs per academic year (three quarter).
