Tuition and Fees | The American University of Iraq Sulaimani

Tuition and Fees

 

AUIS is a private, not-for-profit university operated for the public benefit of the Kurdistan Region and Iraq.  To help talented students attend, the University subsidizes their education. On average more than 40% of the cost of an AUIS student’s education is paid for by outside sponsors, gifts and grants. 

In general, the higher a student’s score on the KRG/Iraq Baccalaureate exam, the lower the tuition rate paid by the student. Students scoring 74 and below on the Baccalaureate exam pay the full (unsubsidized) tuition rate of $8,000 per year (two semesters).
