Students are scheduled for classes only after a one-on-one meeting with their Academic Advisor. Registration and pre-registration take place each semester. The student must apply for registration on the prescribed form listing the subjects to be studied during the semester. The last date for registration is posted by the Registrar. Registration will not be considered complete until the course fees and all other balances due have been paid. Students will not receive credits for courses in which they are not registered. Inquiries regarding registration should be directed to the Registrar’s Office.
Every student is assigned an Academic Advisor for the duration of their degree program. The Advisor assists students in selecting courses for each semester. In addition, the Advisor is available to the student on a daily basis by appointment or, in emergency cases, non-scheduled sessions. Advisors discuss professional goal-setting, answer questions about academic programs, review student registration forms for classes, and make referrals to College and off-campus resources as needed.
Students may make schedule changes without financial penalty during each term’s Add/Drop Period in the first week of the semester to add a course، and the first two weeks of the semester to add/ drop a course. Adding or dropping courses is not allowed outside of this period، and there are no refunds for classes dropped after the end of the Add/Drop Period. Courses may only be added or dropped with the permission of the student’s Academic Advisor.
Students can withdraw from courses prior to the ninth week of fall or spring semester, or prior to the fourth week of summer sessions. In these cases, the letter W will be noted in the student´s file alongside the course. The student´s CGPA will not be affected. However, if students withdraw after the second week, they must pay the full amount for repeating the course whenever they decide to take the course again.
Fall and Spring Semesters 3-6 courses, 9-18 credit hours for full-time or part-time students. Summer Sessions (I and II) 2 courses, 6 credit hours for full-time students 1 course, 3 credit hours for part-time students
Course Grading System. Students receive letter grades for each course in which they have enrolled. The letter grade reflects student performance in a particular course. The minimum grade for passing a course is D. The College awards grades as shown in the following table:
|90 and above||A||4.0|
|Less than 60||F||0.0|
Grade Point Average

|Excellent||3.5 to 3.79|
|Very Good||3.0 to 3.49|
