AUW strives to meet the financial need of each admitted student and offers full and partial financial aid based on each family’s background and financial circumstances. All financial aid awards are assessed prior to the beginning of the academic program. Transfer students are not eligible for Financial Aid.
Evaluation Criteria for Initial Financial Aid
The Financial Aid Committee shall have the right to investigate and verify all the information and documents submitted by the applicants.
Eligibility to Continue Receiving Financial Aid
Students are required to maintain a CGPA of 2.0 each year to continue to receive financial aid; financial aid will be renewed annually until graduation from AUW.
A student cannot apply for any increase in the financial aid after she has started at AUW unless a drastic/ major event occurred that severely changes her family’s financial situation. Please keep in mind that any approval of such increase in financial aid later in the program will be a rare occurrence.
Travel Grant for recipients of Financial Aid
Travel grants may be awarded to international students who qualify for financial assistance. A travel grant is limited to a one-way ticket to Chittagong and a ticket home after graduation from AUW. Students seeking support for travel home during intermediate summers may engage in the AUW work-study program and earn money towards travel.
