Apply to AU

When you apply to AU, you will be creating an account that will allow you to view information through your MyAU page as you progress toward being an AU student. The account requires a personal email account that is unique to you. If you share your email or do not have an email account, you will need to sign up for a free email account through one of the many free email providers on the internet such as Gmail or Yahoo.
