American Islamic College offers payment plans in the form of monthly installments to best assist students’ needs.

Financial Aid

Currently, there is no Federal Aid (FAFSA) available for AIC academic programs. AIC grants financial assistance awards each year to students who demonstrate financial need. A financial aid award will not exceed the difference between estimated college costs and the anticipated support from all other sources. Students who wish to receive financial assistance must submit the AIC Financial Aid Form by the designated deadline. Financial assistance is limited; students are encouraged to apply early.

Continuation of financial assistance to students who have been awarded aid is contingent upon maintenance of good academic standing. Students must maintain a minimum of 2.75 GPA.


American Islamic College awards partial tuition scholarships to students who demonstrate high academic performance. Students must maintain “good academic standing”, in order for the scholarship to be renewed. Review of the student’s academic standing occurs in January, annually. There is no separate application for the scholarship. Please indicate that you would like to be considered for the scholarship in your application.

If a student has been awarded the scholarship, then a letter will be issued outlining the details. Letters of scholarship renewal will be distributed every January.

Scholarships are available to both part-time and full-time undergraduate and graduate students.

Work-Study Program

American Islamic College has limited part-time opportunities for AIC students. Priority is given to students who need to finance their education at AIC. Students who wish to join our AIC-based Work Study Program should contact the Office of Student Services. Students employed under this program are not permitted to work more than 20 hours per week during the academic term and may not work during scheduled class times.


American Islamic College expects all students to pay the year’s tuition by the first week of class. Students who wish to pay tuition using the monthly installment plan should contact the registrar’s office for further information.

The College is committed to granting scholarships to all students demonstrating qualification and need, as long as they maintain satisfactory academic progress for each year of study.

Refund Policy

Non-attendance in a course does not constitute official withdrawal. Students who are registered in a course and yet fail to attend are held responsible both academically and financially for that course. Refunds are given only when the student officially withdraws with the knowledge and permission of the Registrar’s Office. The following schedule is applied to registration costs (both credit and audit) and tuition-fees only. All fees and room charges are non-refundable.

Please read. This calculator is intended to provide estimated net price information (defined as estimated cost of attendance — including tuition and required fees, books and supplies, room and board (meals), and other related expenses — minus estimated grant and scholarship aid) to current and prospective students and their families based on what similar students paid in a previous year.
