Academic Advising System
The Faculty assigns an academic advisor from the staff members for each group of students. The advisor will be fully responsible for the group’s academic affairs and for the selection of their courses.
The students should be in contact with their advisors within the registration period of every academic semester in order to help them register for their courses.
Student Academic Load
The average academic load for a regular student in an academic semester ranges from 4 to 6 courses or from 12 to 19 hours per week in addition to an intensive English course. The summer semester average academic load ranges from 1-2 courses.
Academic Supervision Rules
Students who fail to maintain a GPA of 2.00 will be placed on academic probation and will be restricted to a load of 12 credit hours or 4 courses per semester. Students on probation who are enrolled in the faculties of Pharmacy or Engineering can register for a maximum of 14 credit hours.
The probationary period provides students with an opportunity to fix their GPA. This period may last for no more than three regular semesters. If students fail to achieve the required grade average by the end of the probationary period, they will be expelled.
- If students do not show up during the advising period, their schedules are “done by advisor”, and therefore, they are not allowed to drop or add any course.
- Students must check their e-mail regularly to be well aware of all steps related to schedules & advising.
A student must continue attending in the section he/she is registered in; if he/she attends in another section, he/she will be considered absent even if the two sections are taught by the same instructor.
In case a student’s absence exceeds 25% of the total number of sessions in a course, he/she will not be permitted to attend exams and will receive a “WU” in that course or an “F’ if the course is English. A list of students who are not permitted to exams is issued monthly throughout the semester and posted at the university campus and sent via e-mail. The student must check it periodically as it is considered one of his/her responsibilities.
If absence is caused by proven illness or emergency, the university physician must be informed on the same day of illness. No medical reports will be accepted unless approved by the university physician.
