AEU offers a variety of institutional scholarships semi-annually to both incoming and current students for the purpose of achieving better quality of education. The conditions for receiving this assistance differs with each scholarship. Applicants may obtain the information and applications by writing to or visiting the office of student financial assistance. Please note that AEU does not participate in government financial aid programs.

The preferences for awarding institutional scholarships are based on the following:

2.        -Academic excellence

4.        -Graduate student level
5.        -International student status
6.        -Full time student status
7.        -Student spouses who are both enrolled



Students cannot be awarded more than one scholarship each semester except in the case of a student employment scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded at the beginning of each semester and the recipients will receive the credit for the amount of scholarship toward the tuition. The total scholarship cannot exceed the tuition that the student should pay.

1. Scholastic Achievement Scholarship
In recognition of scholastic achievement, one student is chosen at the end of each regular semester. All or part of the tuition of the recipients will be waived during the next semester. To qualify for this scholarship, the student must obtain a G.P.A. of 3.5 or above for the semester.

2. Overseas Mission Scholarship
This scholarship shall be awarded to those students who came for study from other countries with the missionary purpose of being trained at America Evangelical University to be pastors, teachers or missionaries. The amount of this scholarship, whether full or partial, shall be decided by the Scholarship Committee of the school.

The work assignment and pay-rate are decided by the dean of the school. This scholarship must be renewed every semester.

5. Tuition Assistance Scholarship

  Scholarship Applications  

Any student who wants to receive financial assistance must submit a scholarship application form at the time of registration each semester. The form will be supplied at registration or can be obtained at the office.

  Scholarship Committee  

The Scholarship Committee has a task of screening the awarding scholarships, fund-raising, and managing the fund. The scholarship committee includes the following: President (Chair), Dean of Academic Affairs, Dean of Student Affairs, Business Director, Directors of the Board, others whom the Chair recommends.

  Procedure of Scholarship Remittance  

After the scholarship applications are reviewed and finalized by the Scholarship Committee, the awarded students will be notified. The student must pay all the tuition and fees, and the school pays the scholarship to the student in five working days after the student clears his/her balance due.

  Refund Policies  

  Refund During Cancellation Period  
If a student cancels a course on or before the first day of instruction at a degree-granting school, the student must receive a refund of 100 percent of the amount paid for institutional charges, less a registration fee not to exceed $100. Please note that the student must cancel in writing. 

  Cancellation Example  
A student enrolls in the degree program 13 days before it is scheduled to start and pays $3,000 toward the full tuition. Three days before the scheduled start the student decides he no longer wants to enroll. That same day the student submits a cancellation form to AEU. Thirty days later the student receives a refund equal to the full amount paid, minus $100 for the registration fee, for a total of $2,900.

  Refund After Cancellation Period  
If a student withdraws from a course at AEU after the first day of instruction, the student is entitled to only a partial refund. Please note the student must withdraw in writing. The refund policy is pro-rata to the 60 percent point of the course. Except for those who cancel the course, the formula for refund through the 60 percent point of a course is as follows:

Total Amount Actually Paid for Instruction(includes all fees, but no equipment)
- Registration Fee
= Adjusted Amount Actually Paid for Instruction

Adjusted Amount Actually Paid for Instruction
X Hours of Instruction Not Received But for which Student Has Paid
/ Hours of Instruction For Which the Student Has Paid 
= Final Refund

  Refund Example  
A student enrolls in a degree program, in which the student pays for one year’s worth of tuition in advance. Three-quarters through the program the student withdraws. If a student has paid for the entire year and withdraws after completing three quarters of that year’s program, the student would not receive a refund, because he or she has completed over 60 percent of the first year. 

  Withdrawal Definitions  

For the purposes of determining the amount you owe, you shall be deemed to have withdrawn from the course when any of the following occurs (a) You notify AEU of your withdrawal or the actual date of withdrawal; (b) School terminates prior to your enrollment; or (c) You fail to attend classes for a three-week period.

  Payment Schedule  

All tuition and fees are due at registration. Students taking nine (9) semester units or more for graduate students, and twelve (12) semester units or more for undergraduate students, who are financially unable to pay all tuition and fees at registration may be allowed to pay by installment as follows:

1/2 tuition and fees at registration.
1/4 tuition and fees by the end of the 4th week.
1/4 tuition and fees by the end of the 8th week.

Students will not be permitted to register for a new semester unless all financial obligations of prior semesters at the school have been settled. AEU requires a payment of five (5) percent of the annual interest in the amount which is still due pursuant to the payment schedule.

  Student Tuition Recovery Fund  

California law requires that, upon enrollment, fees be assessed in relation to the cost of tuition (Education Code Section 94343). These fees support the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF), a special fund established by the California Legislature to reimburse those students who might otherwise experience financial loss as a result of untimely school closure. Students may be reimbursed by STRF only for the prepaid but unused tuition. Institutional participation is mandatory. It is important that enrollees keep a copy of any enrollment agreement, contract, or application in order to document enrollment; tuition receipts or canceled checks in order to document the total amount of tuition paid; and records which show the percentage of the course which has been completed. Such records substantiating a claim for reimbursement from the STRF, which to be considered, must be filed within one year following school closure.
