Are there scholarships available?

AUC is proud to have awarded more than $40.4 million USD in scholarships since 2009. Scholarships are available to those who apply and qualify.

How selective is AUC's admissions process?
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?
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.
