Nondegree and Auditors

Nondegree students are not limited to a fixed set of undergraduate courses and are not affiliated with a study-abroad program.

Since AUC is accredited in both the United States and Egypt, students from U.S. universities are usually able to transfer AUC credits to their home institutions, but please check in advance.


  • Nondegree students must submit the same application materials as degree-seeking students.
  • Admission to the program is selective.
  • Successful applicants must have completed 30 credit hours as indicated in their post-secondary transcripts and must have a satisfactory grade point average (GPA).
  • Applicants coming from non-English-language universities must demonstrate competency that places them in or above RHET 1010: Approaches to Critical Writing.

Upon request, the University may approve a change of status from a nondegree to degree-seeking student. The department of major will consider accepting credit hours for courses taken as a nondegree student.

All academic regulations applicable to degree-seeking students will apply retroactively with such a change of status.  

Individuals wishing to attend classes without receiving academic credit are not required to fulfill AUC's admissions requirements. 

Auditors should submit an application form, application fee and two passport-size photos. 

Admissions decisions are made during the first week of classes each semester and are dependent upon space availability and approval of professors. 

Auditors are allowed to attend a maximum of two courses (six credit hours) per semester.
