2 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial aid is horrible, and AU doesn't give you much to work with. Very expensive school and you can only go here if you are rich, have lots of scholarship money, or don't mind being in debt for the rest of your post-grad life.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: A lot of people seem to get screwed over with money at this school. I'm from a low income family from a state that is under represented at AU so I got lucky and received a good scholarship and need based aid. A lot of my peers who are from the middle class did not get nearly as much money as I did. Also if your financial circumstances change while at AU do not expect them to help you out. I have had friends being forced to leave the university because one of their parents lost a job and the university would not help them out.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Since it is a private school, the financial aid office does the best that it can allocating the money that it has available for scholarships. However, the one thing they lack is the availability to give to not only freshmen and transfers, but also students who have to apply for financial aid throughout their college career because of a change in their financial situation.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: They give out aid based on merit.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I just filled out the FAFSA and got my aid. Although I'm missing money and I need to find a scholarship.
