What is American University Connect?

American University Connect is a consortium of American universities with a common interest in recruiting and serving non-U.S. students.


How do I apply to a university in AUC?

All of the universities in AUC require a pre-admission interview with college representatives.  This interview is designed to assure that the university meets your needs and interests in a college education, and that you are a good fit for the university.


After you indicate your interest in a university in AUC, you will be contacted by a university representative to set up your interview.


These interviews typically take place in your 2nd or 3rd year of High School.  Your acceptance into a university will be conditional on performance in High School through graduation, and may, depending on the university, require additional information such as a standardized exam or an English proficiency exam.


Is there a fee for the Pre-Admission Interview?

Upon acceptance to any AUC university, you will be charged a $500 US acceptance fee.


When will I receive the documentation required for visa application?

Once you are accepted in a university, and are in your senior year of high school study, you will be sent confirmation of your admission to your university. Use this to apply for your F-1 Student Visa.


What do I need to bring with me to the United States?

Bring the Pre-Departure Guide attached with you. You will be required to show these documents when you enter the University States:

  • Valid passport with F-1 Student Visa
  • Form I-20
  • SEVIS I-901 fee receipt
  • Your University Acceptance Letter
  • Financial documents showing funds to support your study in the U.S.

You will also want to make sure you have enough cash in U.S. dollars to cover expenses for your first few days in the United States, about $250 U.S.


The Interview Makes a Difference

Pre-admissions interviews allow you to discuss your academic goals and find your best university fit.
