Need-based financial aid grants are outright grants of assistance for undergraduate students based on demonstrated need. Graduate students may receive need-based grants subject to budget availability. The University was able to award grants to 80 percent of the enrolled students who applied for need-based financial aid.
AUB performs a financial analysis of the information collected on the Financial Aid Application completed by a student and his/her family and from supporting documentation. Several factors, including family income, assets such as home(s), car(s), and other property, number of school age siblings, and major changes in financial status are used when evaluating a family's financial strength and ability to pay tuition costs. Evaluations are then made by the Interfaculty Committee for Financial Aid. Every attempt is made to treat all families equitably.
