Antonine University (UA) has temporarily suspended some of its requirements for applying to the Spring and Fall 2021 Terms and has provisionally relaxed some undergraduate and graduate admissions policies and procedures to ensure high school and university students are not affected with the current situation our country and the whole world are going through. We were and will always be trying to find the best solutions that fit our University’s academic standards and your expectations.


UA will ensure a smooth process for application submission in all three campuses, through its admissions team ready to guide you and assist you in fulfilling all the amended temporary requirements to make sure you apply online and make it through the Spring and Fall 2021.

New Measures

UA will exceptionally relax some of its procedures with extreme flexibility in order to cope with the current situation, through the following measures:

  • UA will accept copies and uncertified school records and academic documents which must be verified once back to the normal situation.
  • UA will consider certified school documents and records as official if submitted by the school administration to the official email addresses of the campus of your choice: admissions@ua.edu.lb for Hadat–Baabda Campus; admissions.zahle@ua.edu.lb for Nabi Ayla–Zahle Campus, and admissions.mejdlaya@ua.edu.lb for Mejdlaya–Zgharta Campus.
  • UA will prolong the accepted SAT, TOEFL, IELTS, and Cambridge English Exam validity to 5 years.
  • UA will accept students who have been assessed and admitted during Fall 2020 and will consider them admitted to the Spring 2021 Term; this does not apply to the programs that offer limited places.
  • UA will take into consideration the grade 10 and 11 records in its assessment, if needed.
  • UA will accept transcripts with no letter grades for transfer students and will make sure they are not penalized for having Pass/No Pass kind of assessments.
  • UA will accept unofficial transcripts and course descriptions for transfer students—to be verified once back to the normal situation.

It is worth mentioning that the stated modifications are not intended as an admissions policy shift but are rather a temporary accommodation driven by the current unusual circumstances.
