Fees


AICU does not participate in any government financial aid program. Tuition is on a per credit basis, and course materials are not included in the tuition. Some course materials are given free of charge to students in PDF documents.  Upon admission, students must officially enroll in each semester, and each semester has two terms. Enrollment must be in conformity to the semester enrollment requirement for each program as outlined below. Students may enroll in more than one semester at once, but can only progress with the required courses in one semester at a time. If any course is not completed in a term, the student must re-enroll in the course in the next term to allow him to submit his work for grading and in some cases this may extend the trimesters required to complete the program. Students must note that this will cost more than the full tuition required for the program. Therefore it is best that they proceed with the program in a timely manner.


The student has the option to enroll in a full or half semester as outlined below. A student enrolled in a 1 term in any semester must enroll in the second term immediately upon completing and submitting the coursework for the last course in that first term to prevent loss of time allowing himself to proceed with the program on course and complete his coursework in a timely manner.
