The Family Tuition Waiver is applicable to students from the same family. This implies family members with direct relationships or kinship such as siblings, spouses, or parents with more than one student simultaneously enrolled at ADU.
Empowering outstanding students
Family Tuition Waiver
Abu Dhabi University is dedicated to empowering outstanding students and inspiring them to pursue their educational objectives. Our scholarship and financial aid program represents a key pillar in our strategy for academic excellence and reflects our commitment to supporting the development of the UAE. We consider it an important national duty to provide equal opportunities for students interested in pursuing higher education and enable them to proactively contribute to society regardless of their financial situation.
The maximum coverage period of any scholarship is four years, or upon graduation, whichever is sooner. In some cases, English language requirements are also included. It is not necessary to re-apply for a scholarship as long as the scholarship maintenance criteria (outlined in the details of each scholarship section) are met.
The scholarship application process begins after a student is formally admitted to ADU and assigned a unique student ID number. This ID number is used to securely log in to a university account that has a section for Financial Aid and Scholarships.
As student information, including academic records, has already been processed by the university upon admission, any scholarships that the student is eligible for will appear on their account page. The student may choose to fill out the online application for any scholarship that appears here, as he/she qualifies for these scholarships based on merit. The application is completed with the appropriate details filled in by the student, along with the uploading of any required documents, and then is submitted online.
When two or more members from the same family are enrolled at ADU studying an undergraduate course, the family tuition waiver will apply a value of 15, 20 or 25 percent on tuition fees depending upon the number of family members enrolled.
The tuition waiver will be implemented as follows:
- Each student enrolled shall benefit from a 15% waiver on tuition (family members enrolled is 2)
- Each student enrolled shall benefit from a 20% waiver on tuition (family members enrolled is 3)
- Each student enrolled shall benefit from a 25% waiver on tuition (family members enrolled is 4 or more)
- To maintain the tuition waiver, a minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 2.5 is required for each family member.
