Undergraduates Aid and Scholarships: The Process
Undergraduate students seeking financial aid are required to complete the financial aid application form and provide the required documents. No financial aid files are reviewed during the registration period. The Office of Financial Aid receives the applications for financial aid either via mail or walk-ins.
The Financial Aid Office reviews the applications and makes sure that all necessary documents are submitted and that the form is duly authenticated. Students should be aware of any additional requirements. The University Financial Aid Committee reviews all information provided by financial aid applicants and establishes a plan for each student. Due to limited financial aid funds, most forms of aid are awarded to students whose files are accurately and timely completed. The committee’s grant decision is communicated by the Financial Aid Office via a candidate’s personal account and/or e-mail.
Continuing undergraduate students enrolled without financial aid can also apply for a grant after completing at least 30 credits at Al Akhawayn, conditional upon having good academic standing. However, special cases of 'force majeure' may only be considered when the student's CGPA is at least 3.00/4.00 for undergraduates and 3.50/4.00 for graduates.
Students with a need-based grant are not allowed to benefit from a single room except with special permission from the Vice President for Academic Affairs and only in exceptional circumstances.
