The semester GPA is the result of the division of the total marks which the student got over the total number of units for all the courses which the student studied at any semester. The marks are calculated by multiplying the unit by the grade weight which the student got for each course.
The least number of study units which the student should register is 12 hours per semester, and the maximum limit for academic load is 24 hours, taking into account that the student’s GPA should suit the academic load.
It is a system in which the academic year is divided into two main semesters. There may also be a summer semester, the duration of which shall be half the duration of the main semesters. The graduation requirements are distributed into levels according to the educational plan.
A regular student must attend lectures and practical classes, and he is deprived from taking the final exam if the attendance rate is less than the percentage determined by the University Council, provided that it is not less than (75%) of the lectures and practical lessons specified for each course in the semester. Moreover, the student who has been deprived of taking the exam due to absence is considered to have failed in the course, and will receive a deprived grade.
If the student is unable to attend the final exam in any of the semester's courses due to a compelling excuse, the College Council may, in extreme circumstances, accept his excuse and allow him to be given an alternative exam that shall be held no later than the end of the next semester. The student will be given a grade after taking the alternative exam.
