American University of Armenia Launches Special Program for Syrian-Armenian Students

Yerevan, Armenia – In response to the on-going crisis in Syria and the many
Syrian-Armenians who have been displaced, the American University of Armenia (AUA) has developed a program specifically targeting this prospective student population.  AUA is offering the opportunity for to enroll in two classes free of charge.  This program is made possible thanks to the generosity of donors who wish to support AUA in this endeavor.

To be eligible, prospective students from Syria must demonstrate financial need,  that they have recently arrived in Armenia within the last six months, and that they aspire to study at AUA.  Upon qualifying, these students may enroll in two non-degree or two Extension classes, free of charge.

Syrian-Armenian students will need to bring their passports to the Registrar’s office for verification of identity and date of arrival.  They will then take the
English placement test, which will help determine which classes are most suitable for each student.

Due to high demand, space is limited.  Prospective students are urged to contact AUA at their earliest convenience.  For more information on how to apply to the special program for Syrian-Armenian students please visit or email
