Academic Rules and Regulations | Antonine University


Academic Rules and Regulations

Article 1: Admission Procedures

A candidate is eligible to enroll as a regular student in an accredited university degree program if they meet all eligibility requirements for admission.

Following the ministerial tutelary requirements, the Antonine University (UA) Council, defines the general eligibility criteria for admission, while the faculty boards define the specific criteria. However, the UA Council has the final authority to validate these criteria at the end of the year.

There are 2 main admission procedures: ordinary admission and admission by transfer. The Office of Orientation and Admissions (OOA) oversees these procedures under the supervision of the Secretary General (SG), in collaboration with the faculties that pilot the curricula chosen by the candidates for admission.

Applications can be submitted electronically (online) or through the OOA. Additionally, students can apply for admission to a double major program.

1.1 Ordinary Admission

The ordinary admission procedure applies to candidates who meet the prerequisites necessary for the academic and study programs/majors they wish to enroll in. The ordinary admission procedure consists of 2 cycles:

  • First cycle: Candidates must hold a Lebanese Baccalaureate or an equivalent qualification and are required to submit an admission file. Additionally, candidates must sit for placement tests (written, oral, and/or interview) as part of the requirements for the undergraduate degree program.
  • Second cycle: Candidates who have been deemed eligible for an undergraduate degree (either at UA or another university) are invited to submit an admission file, have an interview with an academic leader, and, if necessary, pass an entrance exam.

1.2 Transfer Admission

Concerning the transfer application procedure, candidates must meet the basic requirements necessary for the academic programs/majors they wish to enroll in. Additionally, they must have completed validated segments of the program of study at other universities. As these segments may be equivalent to subjects within the chosen curriculum, candidates should provide descriptions of the validated subjects from the previous university, certified transcripts, and the diploma supplement.

The OOA complies the documented data and includes it in the transfer file, which is then sent to the dean of the equivalent faculty. The dean submits the file to the faculty and the transfer committee for review. Once the committee has made the decision, the dean validates it and reports it in a documented manner to the OOA. Before informing the candidate of the faculty’s decision, the OOA ensures that it is validated by the Secretary General.

Transferred subjects are marked with a “T” (complementary system of grades) and do not receive numerical scores.

The University has set a limit of 49% on the number of transfer credits that can be accepted.

2.1 Enrollment and Academic Status

After completing the admission procedure, students begin their university enrollment procedure, which encompasses financial, administrative, and academic components. Once enrolled, the University evaluates the student’s situation based on the following statutes:

2.1.1 Financial Component

The financial component involves the payment of tuition fees and a deposit to the UA Accounting Department, typically done through a bank. Tuition fees are calculated each semester based on the multiplication of the number of courses the student enrolls in by the corresponding credit value. If an official un-subscription (Drop, see of a subject occurs before the end of the designated Add/Drop period, the tuition fees for that semester will be adjusted to exclude the cost of the dropped subject. Additionally, enrollment in the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) is mandatory or requires documentation attesting to such adhesion.

2.1.2 Administrative Component

After the payment mentioned above, the administrative component is completed at the Office of the Registrar (OOR) within the Secretariat General. This process includes the allocation of a student identification number and a UA email address ( Additionally, the student receives a UA identification card, which grants authorization for the academic part of the enrollment process.

2.1.3 Academic Component

Under the guidance of the respective faculty, the academic component allows students to enroll in the subjects offered that align with their program of study.

It is important to note that students are not permitted to share passwords and must strictly maintain the absolute confidentiality of their password. Any violation of this policy will be subject to disciplinary action.

2.1.4 Academic Advisor

Each student is assigned an academic advisor who guides them throughout their course and enrollment process. In all faculties, each full-time faculty member serves as an academic advisor to a group of assigned students. The role of the academic advisor includes the following:

  • monitoring the student’s academic progress throughout their academic journey;
  • providing guidance to the student in their program choices and assisting them in their academic pursuits;
  • advising the student in selecting appropriate subjects during enrollment periods;
  • verifying the suitability of the student’s subject choices in terms of the Student Information System (SIS);
  • assisting probationary students in enrolling in the necessary subjects and giving them priority in registering for the subjects they previously failed;
  • acting as a mediator between the student and various academic bodies upon the student’s request;
  • assisting the student in administrative procedures related to their academic career, particularly in managing academic and professional workloads;
  • ensuring that the student makes suitable enrollment choices for subjects (including language courses and those with prerequisite requirements) in a timely manner;
  • ensuring that students in the new academic system make appropriate enrollment choices to maintain a GPA above the threshold for good academic standing.

Semiannual Subject Enrollment Thresholds
For undergraduate students pursuing a Bachelor’s degree, the number of subjects they can enroll in per semester is limited to a maximum of 18 credits and a minimum of 9 credits, excluding summer semesters. However, exceptions to these limits may be granted by the dean in extraordinary circumstances, particularly for students nearing the completion of their course.

2.1.5 Dismissal Inherent to the University Affiliation Requirement

If a student exceeds the specified time limit (number of semesters) for their university affiliation, as outlined in Article 4, they will be dismissed from UA. However, the student has the option to submit a request for derogation to the dean, providing justification and motivation. The dean has the authority to grant a derogation based on the student’s file.

2.1.6 Dismissal Inherent to a Repeated Failure in a Subject

Under the new academic system, if a student accumulates 3 failures in a subject, they will be dismissed from UA. However, the student has the option to submit a request for derogation to the dean, presenting arguments and justifications. The dean, with the agreement of the Secretary General, may grant a derogation based on the student’s file.

For students under the former academic system, the ceiling for dismissals due to repeated failure in a subject is set at 6 failures in that subject.

2.1.7 Deliberate Suspension of Studies

A student has the option to deliberately and justifiably suspend their studies. The student must inform the OOR, who will then notify the dean of the student’s home faculty. This suspension is limited to a maximum of 4 consecutive semesters, excluding summer semesters. If the suspension extends beyond this limit, it will be converted into a dismissal.

2.1.8 Re-integration

A student who has been suspended may request re-integration to their previous status before the deliberate suspension. The request should be submitted to the OOR before the enrollment period for the respective semester. If the student has not exceeded the maximum suspension period of 4 semesters and there are no academic, administrative, or financial issues, the OOR will proceed with the re-integration. If there have been changes to the study program during the suspension period, the student will be subject to the academic standards of the updated program version. If the conditions for normal re-integration are not met, the dean will review the re-integration request and decide whether to proceed with the case accordingly.

2.1.9 Academic Status

For students enrolled in the new academic system (as described in 5.1.1) that is based on GPA, there are 4 categories of academic status: Good Academic Status

A student is considered to have a favorable academic status (Good Academic Standing) in their course of study when the following conditions are met:
For Bachelor’s degree students:

  • 1–30 validated credits: GPA ≥ 1.6/4
  • 31–45 validated credits: GPA < 1.8/4
  • a minimum of 46 validated credits: GPA ≥ 2/4

For Master’s degree students:
Regardless of the number of credits, the GPA must be greater than or equal to 2.0/4.

It important to note that maintaining a maximum of 3 UW (Unofficial Withdrawal) grades, without conversion to F, is necessary to be eligible for a good academic status. Academic Probation

The status of a student in their course of study is considered Academic Probation when the following conditions are met for a Bachelor’s degree:

  • 1–30 validated credits: GPA < 1.6/4
  • 31–45 validated credits: GPA < 1.8/4
  •  a minimum of 46 validated credits: GPA < 2/4

If a student has at least 3 UW grades without conversion to F, they will be placed on academic probation. The probation status is lifted when the number of UW grades falls below 3. When a student is placed on academic probation, the following rules apply:

  • During each subsequent semester, the student can enroll in a maximum of 12 credits per semester. This allows them to prioritize re-enrollment in subjects to improve their GPA.
  •  Exceptions to the credit limit may be granted within the time limit of studies. Academic Suspension

After being on academic probation for 3 semesters, a student enrolled in the new academic system will be placed on academic suspension. At this point, the student’s future at the UA is reviewed by the faculty board. Based on their evaluation, the faculty board has the authority to decide whether to conditionally re-integrate the student or dismiss them permanently. Dismissal

If the suspension and re-integration process fails to improve the unsatisfactory academic status of a student enrolled in the new academic system, the student will be permanently dismissed from the institution. This means that they will no longer be allowed to continue their studies at UA. Change of the Education Plan

Students have the option to apply for a change in their program, concentration, or linguistic section (e.g., French versus English) by submitting a request to the OOR. This applies to transitions from the common core to a concentration in certain faculties, as well as program or concentration changes in other faculties. The approval of the dean or the head of the department concerned is required for such requests to be validated.

It is important to note that a change of program or language section may incur additional fees, which will be determined by the treasurer. However, other changes in education plans are typically free of charge.

Article 2: Procedure for Withdrawal From a Subject

There are 3 procedures available for a student to withdraw from a subject in which they are enrolled. The first is un-subscription during the Add/Drop Period. The second is the official withdrawal and aims to avoid a decrease in GPA. The third is the unofficial withdrawal, which sanctions the student’s lack of assiduity in learning the subject.

1.1 Official Un-subscription/Drop

A student has the right to officially unsubscribe from a subject at the beginning of the semester. This process must be completed before the end of the Add/Drop Period. Official un-subscription/drop is an automated procedure that does not incur any penalties. It is important to note that this action will not be documented on the student’s transcript of grades, and the student will be exempted from paying tuition fees associated with the subject.

1.2 Official Withdrawal

If a student enrolled in a subject encounteres difficulties in passing the subject and wishes to avoid a negative impact on their GPA or overall average, they can request an official withdrawal from the subject. The request must be submitted to the OOR within the prescribed deadlines, which is typically no later than the penultimate session of the subject. The official withdrawal is an automatic un-subscription without any penalty.

When an official withdrawal is granted, the grade for that subject is not included in the calculation of the student’s GPA or overall average. However, it is documented on all transcripts, including the official transcript. It is important to note that the tuition fee paid for the subject will not be reimbursed in any case.

1.3 Class Participation and Unofficial Withdrawal Procedure

According to the directives of the Directorate of Higher Education at the Ministry of Education, student attendance is mandatory for subjects taught in Lebanese universities. Additionally, Article 140 of the Organic Statute specifies the following:

  • Students are required to fully abide by regulations and schedules, as outlined in Articles 130 and 131.
  • Students who arrive late to a class session will not be allowed to participate.
  • Students are not permitted to leave the class before the session concludes once the course has started.

1.3.1 Academic Dimension

Attendance, assiduity, and meeting deadlines are crucial for the successful completion of a course. Therefore, student attendance in class sessions is mandatory. In the event of an absence, it is the student’s responsibility to inform the faculty member via email and make arrangements to compensate for the missed learning. This includes inquiring about the content covered, studying the missed material, and completing any required assignments or tasks.

1.3.2 Participation

Active participation from students in the classroom is essential for effective learning. Students are expected to actively engage in discussions, ask questions, and contribute to the learning environment. It is important for students to provide any required materials requested by the faculty member to facilitate the learning process. This may include textbooks, supplementary readings, or other resources necessary for the course.

1.3.3 Minimum Attendance Rate

There is a minimum attendance rate requirement for students enrolled in subjects at UA. Under certain conditions, a certain level of absence is tolerated. However, if the rate of absence exceeds the tolerated level, the student may face unofficial withdrawal from the subject. It is important to note that arriving late (more than 15 minutes) to a session or leaving before the session ends is considered an absence.

The minimum attendance rate required for any student enrolled in a subject at UA is 70%. This translates to a maximum of 9 sessions of 1.5 hours for a 3-credit subject, 6 sessions of 1.5 hours for a 2-credit subject, and 3 sessions of 1.5 hours for a 1-credit subject.

Graduate students may be granted an additional exception to the attendance requirement, capped at 50%.

In all cases, students’ absences must be compensated for through additional work, online assignments, and, if applicable, intensive courses integrated into the programs or majors.

If a student enrolls late in the semester, the sessions missed by the late student are counted as absences.

1.3.4 Recording Attendance

The faculty member is responsible for recording the attendance of students at each class session of a subject on the SIS during the session.

1.3.5 Warning

When specific thresholds of cumulative or successive absences are exceeded, a warning is sent via the SIS to the student, as well as to the faculty member and advisor concerned. The thresholds for cumulative and consecutive absences differ based on the credit value of the subject:

  • For a subject of 3 credits, the threshold is 5 cumulative absences and 4 consecutive absences.
  • For a subject of 2 credits, the threshold is 4 cumulative absences and 3 consecutive absences.
  •  For a subject of 1 credit, this threshold is 2 cumulative absences.

Exceeding these thresholds triggers the warning notification, indicating that the student’s attendance is below the acceptable level, thus serving as an alert to both the student and the relevant faculty member and advisor to address the attendance issue and take appropriate actions to improve attendance and engagement in the subject.

1.3.6 Sanction by Unofficial Withdrawal

According to Article 61 of the Organic Statute, the dean is responsible for consulting with the unit board regarding student absences and submitting the decision for validation by the Secretary General. If a student’s absences from a subject exceed the authorized rate, the OOR notifies the student of an unofficial withdrawal from the subject through the SIS.

This withdrawal results in the assignment of the UW grade for that subject, which is reflected on the student’s transcript of grades issued by the OOR. However, the student has the right to appeal this decision by submitting a justified request to the OOR within a maximum of 3 days if the sanction is communicated during the semester, or within 24 hours if the sanction is communicated at the end of the semester. The appeal must be based on 2 grounds:

  • The average of the previous assessments is higher than the passing threshold.
  • Documented justification for at least 2 absences.

The OOR forwards the appeal request to the concerned dean, who, after consulting with the faculty member of the subject, may decide to reverse the unofficial withdrawal with the OOR. In such cases, the student’s SIS is reinstated in the subject, and one of the absences that led to the unofficial withdrawal is canceled. If the Dean does not respond to the request within 48 hours of receipt, the unofficial withdrawal remains in effect.

Starting from the academic year 2023–24, the grade UW is transformed into an F grade, which is considered a failing grade and is taken into account for the calculation of the GPA.

1.3.7 Sanction for the Repeated Dismissal From Class

In addition to the previous sanctions, if a student is repeatedly dismissed from the class by the faculty member of a subject, the faculty member can apply the sanction of unofficial withdrawal. When a student has been dismissed from the class 3 times, these dismissals must be reported to the OOR. Once the student reaches the maximum limit of 3 dismissals, they will be de-registered from the subject.

1.3.8 Use of Computers and Mobile Phones

The use of mobile phones in the classroom is generally prohibited, unless explicitly authorized by the faculty member for specific and occasional cases. Notebooks or laptops are permitted in the classroom for learning purposes directly related to the course, such as note-taking or classroom exercises. However, using these tools for entertainment purposes or for work unrelated to the subject being taught is prohibited and can result in disciplinary action (refer to section 6.2). Recording or filming of the lessons can only be done with the written consent of the faculty member. These restrictions are in place to ensure respect for all stakeholders involved in the teaching and learning environment and to foster a professional and credible atmosphere in the long term.

1.3.9 Complementary Hours of Studies

In addition to attending the scheduled class sessions, students are expected to dedicate additional study hours to each subject. These study hours are necessary for various activities, including required readings, accessing library or electronic resources, and engaging in independent research or documentation related to the subject.

Article 3: Procedures for Evaluation of Learning Outcomes

The evaluation of a student’s learning outcomes in a particular subject is designed to assess their achievement of the assigned learning objectives and the acquisition of credits within the broader framework of their enrolled program.

1.1 Modalities for Assessing Learning Outcomes

The assessment of learning outcomes may employ various modalities, including diagnostic, formative, and summative assessments, which can take the form of different evaluative activities, such as oral exams, written exams, practical exams, oral tests, essays, presentations, defense of master’s theses, or other specific forms of evaluation. Additionally, a subject’s evaluation may consist of multiple components with assigned weightings.

1.2 Academic Works

Academic works assigned by the faculty member are an integral part of the subject’s requirements. Students are expected to submit these works by the specified deadline. However, if has a valid reason for being unable to submit the work on time, they may request an extension from the faculty member within a designated timeframe. It is important to note that any delay in the submission of the work may result in a reduction of the grade. The extent of the reduction depends on the specific circumstances and can range from 5% (e.g., for a 3-day delay) to 100% (e.g., for a 2-week delay) of the score assigned to the work.

1.3 Subject Scoring

The faculty member in charge of teaching a subject is responsible for determining and recording grades for each evaluative activity. These grades are then integrated into a table that summarizes the assessment of student’s performance in the subject and enables the computation of the final score out of 100 for each enrolled student.

In cases where an evaluative activity, such as a final exam or partial exam, is conducted anonymously, the grades for that activity are entered into the SIS by an academic assistant. On the other hand, for non-anonymous activities, the faculty member enters the grades directly into the SIS.

1.4 Subject Validation

The validation of a subject and the associated credits is contingent upon obtaining a grade that meets or exceeds the predetermined passing threshold. If a student does not achieve validation by the end of the current semester, the result is recorded as “failure” with the grade noted as F. Alternatively, it may be considered:

  • “In progress, re-enrollment” with the grade noted as PR: This designation is used when the evaluative process is still ongoing, typically in cases of research supervision or graduation projects.
  • “Incomplete” with the grade noted as I: This provisional grade does not contribute to the calculation of the GPA and is assigned when a student has not fulfilled the requirements of the subject within the specified timeframe. The OOR converts an incomplete grade to an F when the deadline (typically the eighth week of the following semester) is exceeded, unless there are exceptional circumstances that justify a deliberate suspension of studies. The specific conditions associated with this status and grade are outlined in the Policy on Assessment of Learning Outcomes and Graduation.

Once the scoring is recorded in the SIS, it is communicated to the dean, the concerned faculty member, and the coordinator (if applicable). According to Article 61, Paragraph 1 of the Organic Statute, the dean, in consultation with the faculty members concerned, including possible collective deliberation in certain cases, makes decisions regarding the assessment results, which are then communicated to the OOR for final verification and/or validation and for inclusion in the student’s official enrollment records.

The final grade recorded by the OOR is reflected in the SIS as well as on the student’s transcript of grades and any other certificates issued by the OOR. These documents are signed by the Secretary General to authenticate their validity.

1.5 Centralized Organization of Partial and Final Exams for In-class Teaching

For subjects of in-class teaching, all faculties follow a centralized and standardized approach to organize final exams in an anonymous manner. Faculties have the option to also organize partial exams in the same centralized manner, while some may choose to manage them internally by faculty members. However, the logistical organization of these exams falls under the jurisdiction of the dean, as stated in to Article 61, Clause 1 of the Organic Statute, which specified that “the dean ensures the meticulous organization and the smooth progress of exams.”

In the case of final exams, the dean consistently involves the Office of Examination (OOE) under the Secretary General’s authority. This collaboration ensures the effective coordination and management of the final exams across the institution.

1.6 Developing Statements of Exams

The faculty members are responsible for preparing the exam statements, both for partial and final exams, approximately one month before the exams take place. In cases where multiple parallel sections are teaching the same course, the Subject Coordinator intervenes to unify the exam statements. These statements are then subject to prior verification by the dean, who validates them before transmitting them to the faculty assistant and the OOE, which, according to a schedule defined annually by the Office itself, handles the reproduction and distribution of the statements during the respective exams.

1.6.1 Progress

The assessment of the learning outcomes for a given subject typically involves both a partial exam and a final exam. These exams are scheduled at the beginning of the semester, and it is crucial for students to strictly adhere to the fixed schedule. It is expected that students will plan and manage their time effectively to ensure they are fully prepared for these exams within the designated timeframe.

1.6.2 Instructions

  • Students must bring their UA ID card to all exams as it is required for identification. Without the ID card, students will not be allowed to take the exam. Before entering the exam hall, each student must confirm their identity by using a tablet device provided for recording attendance. Upon completion of this process, they are assigned to a table. After completing the exam and submitting their copy, students must again confirm their identity using the tablet before leaving the hall.
  • Mobile phones are to be turned off and placed on a central table after the student’s identity verification. They are not allowed to be accessed during the exam.
  • The use of electronic calculators, books, electronic data storage devices, and any means of accessing external data or communicating with a third party is prohibited, unless explicitly authorized (e.g., authorized calculators or paper documents). Possession of any prohibited items during the exam will be considered a disciplinary offense, and the supervising faculty member is authorized to confiscate such items.
  • Students may commence writing only after receiving authorization from the supervisor. They should stop writing when instructed to do so by the supervisor.
  • No student is allowed to enter or leave the exam hall within 30 minutes after the start of the exam. No additional time will be granted.
  • Except for a bottle of water, bringing food and beverages into the exam hall is prohibited.
  • Students must write their name and identification number on their exam copy. Once they complete the exam, they must submit their copy along with the questionnaire to the supervisor before leaving the hall.
  • Students are responsible for bringing their own laboratory tools, pens/ball pens, pencils, rulers, and other equipment required for the exam. The use of any other object must be explicitly authorized by the OOE.
  • Writing should be done using a single pen color, either black or blue (gel or ballpoint).
  • Pencils are allowed only for graphic and specialized scoring purposes.
  • The use of correction pens, correction tape, or erasable pens is permitted.
  • If students make a mistake on the exam paper and do not have a liquid corrector, they may cross out the text they do not want to be considered during the correction.
  • Students must use legible handwriting during exams.
  • Communication between students during an exam is strictly prohibited. Students found acting in a manner that disturbs or distracts other candidates may be asked by the supervisor to change places or may be dismissed from the exam hall. Failure to comply with these requirements is considered a disciplinary offense.
  •  Students taking practical exams must adhere to the safety requirements of the laboratory where the test is conducted.
  • The supervisor is obligated to report any violations of these rules to the OOE and inform the concerned candidate that the infraction will be reported.
  • The University has a zero-tolerance policy regarding exam fraud.
  •  Disciplinary sanctions for any violations will follow the procedure described in 6.5.2.

1.7 Absence

If a student fails to attend a partial exam or a final exam, they will receive a grade of “zero” for that particular exam, unless there are exceptional circumstances beyond their control. Examples of force majeure events include the hospitalization of the student or the death of a close relative (such as a father, mother, spouse, or siblings). In such cases, if the student provides appropriate documentation supporting the force majeure circumstances, they may be granted permission to retake the missed partial or final examination within a short period. This authorization is contingent upon the payment of fees determined by the Financial Administration. If this exam is scheduled after the end of the relevant semester, the student’s result for that subject will be recorded as “Incomplete” on the SIS until they have successfully completed the resit exam. Once the resit exam is passed, a final result will be assigned to the student and permanently recorded on the SIS.

1.7.1 Appeal

After the partial exams, faculty members provide copies of the exams to the students. However, for final exams, the copies are archived in the OOE and are not made visible to the students due to the ownership of the exams belonging to the University, in accordance with Lebanese law.

Nevertheless, if a student wishes to contest the result of a final exam, they have the right to submit a formal request to their home faculty. The OOE is responsible for reviewing and considering these requests. As part of the review process, a verification of the grades for the different components of the exam is conducted. If an error in the calculation is identified, the OOE will correct the result in consultation with the relevant dean. However, if the verification confirms the initial result that was contested, the student will be penalized by a reduction of 25% in their final exam grade.

1.8 Evaluation of Thesis

For research theses or end-of-studies projects, each home faculty established an assessment procedure. Typically, this involves a collegial assessment conducted by a defense panel. The defense panel evaluates the thesis or project and provides an assessment based on their collective judgment. The specific details of the assessment procedure may vary among faculties, but the purpose is to evaluate the quality and contribution of the thesis or project in accordance with the established academic standards.

Article 3: Graduation Process

1.1 Graduation Conditions

1.1.1 Requirements for Graduation of Students Initially Enrolled Under the Former Academic System

Students who were initially enrolled under the former academic system must fulfill the following requirements in order to be eligible for graduation:

  • validate all credits for the subjects required by the educational scheme;
  • successfully complete all academic requirements specified in the training plan, including any necessary remediation or intensive refresher courses;
  • satisfy all other admission requirements set by the University;
  • maintain good behavior while on the University campus;
  • settle all outstanding tuition fees owed to the University.

1.1.2 Requirements for Graduation of Students Initially Enrolled Under the New Academic System

Students who were initially enrolled under the new academic system must fulfill the following requirements in order to be eligible for their first diploma:

  • validate all credits for the subjects required by the educational scheme;
  • successfully complete all academic requirements specified in the training plan, including any necessary remediation or intensive refresher courses;
  • satisfy all other admission requirements set by the University;
  • achieve a general cumulative GPA (or a general average) equal to or greater than the specified threshold set by the program;
  • attain a cumulative disciplinary GPA equal to or greater than the specified threshold set by the program;
  • maintain good behavior while on the University campus;
  • settle all outstanding tuition fees owed to the University.

1.2 Issuance of the Diploma

Once a student has met all the graduation requirements, they can apply for their diploma and evaluation report specific to their program of study at their home faculty, which the forwards the application and relevant information regarding the validation of the entire program to the OOR.

Upon fulfillment of all the academic, administrative, and financial conditions necessary for obtaining the diploma, the diploma certificate is issued and signed by the Rector, the Secretary General, and the dean. It is then delivered to the student by the Secretariat General.

Additionally, a detailed attestation of the assessments pertaining to the subjects in the study program is issued by the Secretariat General, bearing the signature of the Secretary General. It provides comprehensive information about the student's performance in each subject.

It is important to note that the original diploma is issued only once. However, certified copies of the diploma can may be requested if needed.
