A student who was in a period of suspension of studies, even if just for one semester, must submit a request for renewal of studies to the department / school secretariat.

Please note that those who were accepted for studies but fail to complete studies in at least one semester (including examinations) are not eligible to renew their studies.

 

Weighting the Final Grade

The final grade is the student’s weighted grade in the courses included in his / her study program (grades in general duties such as English are not weighted by the final grade). Grades from other institutions are not included in the weighting.

If the student learns surplus courses over and above the requirements of the degree hourly quota, the grades in the courses with the highest achievements among the surplus courses will be calculated in the weighting process, while maintaining the quota of hours required for the degree as set forth in the course booklet. The courses that are not taken into consideration in the final grade, will remain in the framework of extra courses. A student who elects to take into consideration in the final grade courses with lower achievements (and transfer the extra courses in which his achievements were higher to the setting of extra courses) will request so in writing from the department’s secretariat when submitting the application for calculation of the final grade.

If the student has learned extra hours that are part of the course hours, the hours of the full course will be weighted.

In cases where the key for weighting the final grade in any unit is not specified, the weight of each course will be identical to the number of study hours.

Following are the Details of the Composition of the Undergraduate Degree in the Various Fields of Study:

Single-Major Studies:

With an expanded division

Departmental Studies – 70%

Extended Division Studies – 30%

 

With a regular division and an enrichment division or two regular divisions

Departmental Studies – 70% (for Psychology 80%)

Ordinary Division Studies 15% (for Psychology 10% for each division)

The Enrichment Division – 15% (for Psychology 10%).

The final final score will be rounded to an integer.

Dual-Major Studies:

The final grade will be weighted in each one of the departments. The scores will be rounded to integers.

In the final grade certificate, the final grade from each department will appear.
