Admission and Registration


Registration can be done in person or online. In-person registration can be done at either the AUC New Cairo or Tahrir Square ESS office. New participants are required to bring an official form of identification such as a national ID card or passport, along with a personal photo, which will be used to provide an AUC ID. Professional program participants are required to pay the course fees within 48 hours from the time of registration. Registration for unpaid courses will be canceled if payment is not made within the required timeframe.
