In some cases, admission placements in higher levels are offered to students who transfer from other universities after a careful review of their transcripts and the reason for the transfer by the Departmental Board of Studies, which is ratified by the School Board and approved by the Senate.

Cross-Checking Documents

Whenever a student comes for registration, the originals of students’ credentials as well as his/her passport photographs are carefully crosschecked and matched against the documents they submitted previously. It is at the discretion of University Registry to make further confirmation and authenticate the submitted certificates with the relevant examination bodies. Usually, cases of impersonation or certificate forgery are handled by the appropriate University unit and students found guilty are expelled and/or prosecuted by the relevant government agencies. In this regard, the University ensures that only qualified students are admitted into the various Departments.
