AUR operates a ‘rolling’ admissions process with preference given to early applicants. Due to student visa purposes, Non-EU/EAA students are encouraged to complete their applications as soon as possible.
Visas and Permit to Stay
Students who are not European citizens, or holders of an EU residency card, or of a current and valid EU visa, are required by law to obtain a student visa from the Italian consulate before departing from their home country. The necessary documentation will be provided to each accepted student once the deposit has been paid. It is the student's responsibility to ensure the student visa is obtained before arriving in Italy. As it may take several weeks to obtain an appointment with the local Italian Consulate, we recommend completing the application as soon as possible. Please visit our Visas and Permits page for more information.
- Fall: April 1st, extended to June 1st for Fall 2020*
- Spring: November 1st
Merit Scholarships are awarded automatically upon acceptance to eligible students that have completed the application process. Eligibility for the Merit Scholarships are based on criteria obtained from the Admissions portfolio.
If you are a US citizen or permanent resident, complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and have the information sent to us by submitting our school code on the FAFSA: G31025.

AUR requires a minimum high school GPA of 3.0. However, each applicant is reviewed individually; leadership, motivation, academic improvement, the level of the high school program’s difficulty, involvement in activities, and potential for growth are important considerations in the selection process.

SAT and ACT scores are optional requirements for U.S. applicants.

A student who has been accepted to The American University of Rome but cannot enroll immediately may request a deferral, which will be confirmed upon payment of the enrollment confirmation deposit. The deposit is non-refundable and will be put towards tuition costs at the time of enrollment. A deferral can be granted up to one academic year after which the student must re-apply for admission to the University.
