Paying for a university education involves planning in advance. This section provides information that will help you develop a budget to cover either a nine-month academic year or a four-month semester. If you need additional information, please contact your admissions counselor.

At least one full semester of tuition must be paid by the published deadlines according to your tuition payment plan. Complete details will be sent with the first invoice after you confirm your attendance to AUP. Once you have reviewed this page, please make sure that you are logged in to select your payment plan option in the Checklist.

The University has developed three payment plans to meet the needs of different undergraduates. The payment plan is selected at the time you confirm your intention to enroll at AUP. That is also when the non-refundable deposit is due (this fee is credited towards your first payment).


Yearly payment plan

The yearly payment plan option allows students to pay tuition for the full academic year (fall and spring) and receive a discount. This option is not available to financial aid recipients.  To benefit from the discount, whether in one or more payments, tuition is due for the year by 15 July.


Semester payment plan

Under the semester payment plan tuition, whether in one or more payments, must be paid in full or a completed loan plan must be submitted by 15 July for the fall semester and 15 December for the spring semester. Payments received after the deadline are subject to a late fee and course registrations may be canceled.


Installment payment plan

Students who select the installment payment plan pay in four installments, all before the start of classes. There is a fee of 200€ per semester for this option. The deadlines are as follows:

Fall semester: 1 June, 1 July, 1 August and 1 September
Spring semester: 1 October, 1 November, 1 December and 1 January
Payments received after the final deadline date are subject to a late fee and course registration may be canceled.


Financially responsible person (FRP)

You will designate the person (or sponsor) who is financially responsible for your university expenses when you confirm your intention to attend AUP. This person will receive all invoices and financial notices and remains liable for all fees. While only one email address can be entered, please enter the name of any persons with whom you authorize us to talk about your tuition and fees. Should you change your Financially Responsible Person before you arrive at AUP, please inform your Admissions Counselor; after your arrival on campus, you will be able to make the change on your student portal.



Once you have selected your payment plan, an invoice will be sent by email to you and the person designated as your Financially Responsible Person (FRP). A late fee of 250 euros will be applied for all payments received after the deadline specified on the invoice.  After you have selected your payment plan if you wish to change it please write to Student Accounting Services at

Payment for tuition and fees can be made online via credit card, by bank transfer or by check drawn on a French bank. Please see the here for bank details.
