Frequently Asked Questions

I am not sure how to enroll, would you please explain?

Then you visit the admissions page, where you will find an enrollment form, you fill it and then hit SUBMIT. Later, you can submit any required documents at the time of enrollment (a government-issued photo ID and copies of any transcripts you wish to provide to prove prior education and/or courses you have taken before and you wish them to be evaluated for transferring their credits to AMNAH College).  After submitting the form along with the documents, you will receive an invoice for the application fee by email and you can pay the application fee securely through PayPal.

Can I transfer courses and credits taken at another institute to AMNAH College?

We will accept transferring courses and credits from other academic and training institutes as long as they are compatible with the field and level of education you are seeking at AMNAH College.

  • Paying tuition by a monthly installment plan that can be affordable to every student and especially the students who cannot afford to pay the full program or course tuition at once. Monthly payments range from $100 to $150 plus the monthly processing fee.

  • Paying tuition for a single course at a time. Most courses range between 2 credits and 6 credits. Thus, the tuition fees for courses range between $100 for a 2-credit course and $300 for a 6-credit course.

  • Paying tuition quarterly. Each quarter at AMNAH College is considered to be a length of 3 months and a minimum of 9 credits. Thus, students who are enthusiastic and motivated to put more hours of study are encouraged to take advantage of the 10% tuition discount and pay for a minimum of 9 credits for a period of 3 months. A quarter consisting of 9 credits costs $405 and the student would have saved $45.

​​

  • Paying tuition in full upfront for the whole program of study. This is the most saving method of paying tuition since the student will be waived the $50 application fee besides a 25% discount of the full tuition. Students who can afford to pay the whole program of study's tuition in full and are motivated to finish their programs of study in the shortest possible period are encouraged to choose this method for paying the tuition.
