After submitting the 500 USD/EURO tuition deposit, you will receive a billing statement from the Finance Office via email. If you intend to stay in AUR Housing, submit the housing form in order to be billed for housing. Please note that tuition and housing are paid by semester at AUR following these deadlines
- July 15: Full Tuition Payment Deadline
- June 30: Housing Payment Deadline
Housing Refund Policy
- One month before housing deadline: 100% refund
- 30 days after housing deadline and 15 days before class start day: 50% refund
- 14 days before class start day: No Refund
Please note that if the payment is not received in full by the payment deadline, your My AUR account is placed on hold. Course registration and/or changes to courses are blocked until payment is received in full.
Fees for students with US federal loans, GI Bill, or private loans are automatically postponed and are not subject to the regular deadline.
Deferments are issued based on the expectations that fees will be paid by US federal loans/GI Bill/private loans. This deferment protects your enrolled classes from cancellation and defers required payment of your fees until US federal loans/GI Bill/private loan disbursement is received.
Fee deferments are only temporary credits and do not relieve you of the obligation to pay. Deferments made in anticipation of US federal loans/GI Bill/private loan are not promises of aid; if you do not complete the financial aid process, fail to meet the criteria of the Financial Aid Department, or are to be found ineligible, you will be responsible for paying the full amount by the payment deadline.
When US federal loans/GI Bill/private loans are disbursed, you will receive a notification by email detailing the disbursements by type and amount. Within 3 days after the disbursement, you will receive another email with your ledger attached, where you can view charges (tuition, new student fee, payments, and loans). If your student account has an amount that exceeds University charges, you will be asked to provide bank information to transfer the refund.
