The University offers a 5,000 MAD discount on the fees of a regular semester (Fall and Spring) for each additional sibling of a student currently enrolled or already graduated from AUI.
In order to apply for the sibling discount, the candidate has to complete the Sibling Discount Form 1and submit it to the Office of Financial Aid before the registration period for Fall or Spring semesters. The sibling discount is not available during the Summer session.
Eligibility for Renewal
The eligibility for renewal of the sibling discount is similar to that of the financial aid. The sibling discount is renewed only after careful reexamination of the recipients’ academic performance at the end of each semester. It is also used for a maximum of 8 semesters for undergraduates and 4 semesters for graduates with no possibility to apply for an extension for an additional semester. For more details, you can refer to the eligibility for renewal of financial aid.
Sibling Discount Renewal Policy for Undergraduate Students
Sibling Discount Renewal Policy for Graduate Students
Continuing students on a sibling discount placed in the following situations:
- Dismissed from AUI for academic reasons (low performance)
- Dismissed from AUI for disciplinary reasons (guilty of improper conduct or noncompliance with AUI regulations)
Withdrawing from AUI regardless of the reasons will definitely lose their discount. However, if ever they are allowed to return back and register again, and then they obtain very good grades at least 2.00/4.00 or better, they have the possibility to submit an appeal for reinstatement to the Financial Aid Office which should be reviewed by the committee.
Graduate students still eligible for their sibling discount and who are enrolled in very low credits during their last semester(s) can use their relevant package on a prorated basis.
Like financial aid, the second child discount amount should not exceed the cost of any credit left for both undergraduate and graduate students during their last semester(s) at AUI (like the one credit left for continuous registration or the three credits left for the internship). In the case of 1 credit for continuous registration, this discount is applicable only once.
Unlike financial aid, the sibling discount is available to international students. Sibling beneficiaries are also allowed to reside in a single room. If one sibling is not enrolled for whatever reason, the sibling discount does not apply anymore. Moreover, this discount is not effective on a retroactive basis.
If the first child, whether still enrolled or graduated from AUI, benefits from a full scholarship covering total costs, the 2nd child is not eligible to benefit from this discount. Also, scholarship and financial aid students are not eligible to benefit from this discount unless they are placed on scholarship or financial aid suspension. Sibling Discount beneficiaries on financial aid must be aware that their 2nd child discount of 5000 dhs is already included in their financial aid package.
