How much does a course cost?
It depends on the number of credits or contact hours of a course. We have basically two types of courses: 3-credit courses (36 contact hours) and 4.5-credit courses (54 contact hours). We charge LE 510 for the 36-hour course and LE 765 for the 54-hour course. Early registration entitles you for discounts (LE 495 and 743, instead of LE 510 and 765, respectively)
Should I pay all the term tuition fees at once?
Yes. You have to pay the full tuition fees upon admission in a program or enrolment in a course in a given term. Students, who wish to withdraw from study after registration will receive a partial refund.
Can you help me in selecting courses and certificates that suit my background and career objectives?
You are required to come for advising in Room 108 and fill an advising card where you select your course(s). Division advisors will help you in the selection and offer you alternative choices and guidance.
When should I register in a course or certificate?
There is an early registration period that begins two weeks prior to the end of a term and extends until one week before the next term. During early registration, you can benefit from tuition fees reduction, select your preferred class schedules, and avoid crowds during the rush periods of late registration.
Is it allowed to change my schedule after the beginning of a term?
You are entitled to add and drop of courses during the first week of the term. Adding a course is only allowed if the number of students in the class offering that course permits
What happens if my class is put on hold or cancelled?
During the first week of the term, classes with low student enrolment will be put on hold for a specific period of time. If low enrolment persists, the class is cancelled. During the hold period, students may transfer to another class after seeking help from the division (Room 108). At the end of the hold period, or in case of a cancelled class, you may obtain 100% tuition refund or may choose to postpone your tuition fee for the coming term.
How should I know that my class is on hold or cancelled?
You can check for classes on hold or cancelled by contacting the division (Contact Us). You may also ask at Room 101 AUC Downtown or first floor in Heliopolis facility. There is an updated schedule of classes posted on the bulletin board located outside Room 106 AUC Downtown and at Heliopolis facility.
Is it possible to look at the course description and content before registering in it?
We have hardcopy flyers and brochures to help you in this respect. This website has a section where online course descriptions are catalogued for every certificate and course that we offer. Refer to your certificate and click on the respective course description link.
How long does it take me to finish my certificate?
It depends on two factors: (a) the number of courses per certificate, (b) the number of courses that you register in, and pass, per term. For example, if the certificate contains 10 courses and you register in five courses per term and pass them successfully, you can finish your certificate in two terms. Usually, it takes more than two terms to complete ten courses.
Is it possible to take a course in a shorter period of time?
Our regular terms are either 12-week or six-week terms. If you wish to take courses on a more intensive basis, you should revert to our customized programs where the training terms are different. However, the intensive courses that you might take are not equivalent to regular courses and do not lead to a certificate.
Should I receive a certificate from AUC after passing a course?
Upon completion of a certificate, you are entitled to one original copy of your graduation certificate and one transcript of your academic record, free of charge. For each course or group of courses completed, you get a transcript of your academic record.
