Early Admissions Round

The Early Admissions Round is meant for serious applicants that have AUIS as their first choice and are ready to legally commit to AUIS without reviewing their options.

Early Admissions Round applicants will receive admissions results in October.

The Early Admissions Round is not dependent on the competitiveness of the applicant pool and therefore the acceptance rate is generally more favorable.

Early Admissions Round accepted applicants will be asked to legally commit to AUIS in October, before the KRG zankoline and Iraqi university placement results are announced.

The Early Admissions Round is currently open until October 3, 2016.
