Sponsorship

Sponsors cover the tuition of students, helping to ensure that AUIS is affordable and accessible to students from a wide variety of backgrounds.

In order to ensure a fair and transparent process, AUIS requires sponsors and sponsored students to follow certain policies and procedures which have been outlined below:


Procedures

Obtaining a Sponsorship

  1. Granting a sponsorship is at the discretion of the sponsor
  2. Liaison confirms the sponsorship with the sponsor

Confirming a Sponsorship

  1. Sponsorships must first be confirmed by the sponsor in a formal email or letter
  2. Sponsorships can be confirmed through the Sponsorship Record Form, either for a single term, for multiple terms or until graduation
  3. Students sponsored for two or more terms should complete a General Sponsorship Agreement
  4. All new or renewed sponsorships must be submitted by the sponsorship deadline - the second Thursday of each term 

Policies 

Implementation

  1. Sponsorships may not be cancelled retroactively
  2. Sponsorships confirmed after the deadline will take effect the following term
  3. Sponsorships confirmed for a term then cancelled during the term will not result in an invoice for that same term; cancellation will always take effect the following term

Academic Standards 

Academic Preparatory Program (APP)

  • First failure of an APP level results in suspension of sponsorship and payment, invoice issued for failure
  • Second failure of APP will result in termination of sponsorship

Undergraduate Program (UG)

  • First term on academic probation results in suspension of sponsorship and invoice issued for low-performing term

Sponsorship Appreciation

AUIS deeply appreciates the financial support of student sponsors.

In order to be approved for graduation, a student must write a personalized thank you note to his or her sponsor to express gratitude.
