American Islamic College has finance 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 a number of scholarships each year to students who demonstrate high academic performance. In order to receive a full scholarship, student must be enrolled full-time (min 12 credit-hours). Students interested in applying should ask for a Scholarship packet from the Registrar’s office.

Full academic scholarships are available for those qualified and students with financial need who are admitted into the BA and MA Programs starting Fall Semester, 2014. For students admitted to either the B.A. or M.A. degree programs, who maintain satisfactory academic progress, these scholarships will be renewable for each year until they complete their respective degree program.

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 Dean of Students. 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 full tuition by the first week of class. Students who wish to pay tuition using our monthly installment plan should contact the registrar’s office for further information.

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