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 January 2023 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 January 2023 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 January 2023 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.
