FIRST-SEMESTER TUITION BACK GUARANTEE

AUC is confident in our students and their ability to successfully transition to the rigorous demands of medical school. We believe in you and your ability to succeed so much so that we’re willing to refund your first-semester tuition if you don’t pass.

New, first-time matriculating MD students who complete semester 1, including final exams, and do not advance to semester 2 because they earned a failing grade in a semester 1 courses/modules required for advancement are eligible for the guarantee. Students eligible for the guarantee receive a reimbursement of tuition based on the following formula: tuition assessed minus institutional scholarships or grants received. Please note, only tuition is included in this guarantee, any fees and other expenses and/or charges are excluded.

REMOTE LEARNING OPTION

While we will continue to deliver our program in person on island in the September 2022 semester, we are excited to announce we are offering a remote option for first-time first-semester students for their first term only*  to give them flexibility in learning options to start their medical education. AUC is committed to providing medical students choosing to start online with the same knowledge and expertise that their classmates in Sint Maarten will receive.  

*The September 2022 semester remote option for new, first-time first semester students is contingent on the U.S. COVID-19 national emergency declaration and federal allowances. If the national emergency declaration and federal allowances are terminated prior to the end of the September 2022 semester, you will be required to attend on island. The remote option is not offered to continuing students (semesters 2-5) or students repeating the first semester.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Where can I practice medicine as an AUC graduate?
You'll be eligible for licensure to practice in all 50 US states, Canada, to the UK and beyond.
Are AUC students eligible for financial aid?
U.S. students can apply for financial aid from the U.S. Department of Education’s William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program. Qualified students can borrow up to the entire cost of attendance (which includes tuition, books and supplies, accommodation, and travel).
Are there scholarships available?
AUC is proud to have awarded more than $40.4 million USD in scholarships since 2009.
 
How selective is AUC's admissions process?
At AUC, we have rigorous standards when considering applicants. Yes, we look at the
whole person—we want to know about one’s life experience, volunteerism, maturity, and
commitment—but we also look closely at how a candidate performed academically as an
undergraduate and their MCAT score.
How can I get my Visa?
If you are accepted, for a legal extended stay in Sint Maarten, you must have your passport stamped with the appropriate student visa from the Sint Maarten government. The government of Sint Maarten, with AUC’s support to facilitate the internal coordination process, will process the student visa prior to the tourist visa stamp expiration date in your passport (from when you first arrived in Sint Maarten). When you arrive in Sint Maarten, you will need to present your passport. You must show proof of a return date ticket.
