About the American University in Cairo
AUC provides a unique opportunity of study abroad for students who are seeking unique experiences, fresh perspectives, cultural immersion into the exciting Egyptian experience. The University offers a variety of programs at the undergraduate level that will enhance their regional knowledge, promote multiculturalism and motivates them to be active in local and global discussions. 

AUC's Study Abroad program is one of direct enrollment, meaning students select courses from general undergraduate listings and are not limited to a fixed set of courses. Since AUC is accredited in the United States as well as in Egypt, students from US universities are usually able to transfer AUC credits to their home institutions. Study abroad applicants are advised to plan selection of courses with their academic advisors or registrars before applying to AUC.

The campus offers state-of-the-art resources to students and faculty from Egypt and around the world and is accessible to persons with disabilities.
