Term and Continuity of Admission Scholarships

Admission scholarships are valid for six academic years for those who attend the English Language Preparatory Program prior to their undergraduate programs, and for five years for those who directly start their undergraduate programs.  Admission scholarships are awarded for a maximum of two years to students in the English Preparatory Program. Students who fail to renew their registration and/or interrupt their undergraduate studies without the approval of the university, or who renew their registration but fail to attend classes, and/or who exceed their maximum period of time allowed to maintain their scholarships will lose their scholarships.  Should students be subject to any disciplinary action, scholarships can be terminated subject to the respective Senate decision.
 
Admission scholarships are not merit-based and will continue to be awarded regardless of students’ academic standing.  However, students must achieve a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5 out of 4.00 at the end of each academic year in order to be eligible to sustain their additional scholarships, including cash stipends, housing, dining, and/or transportation scholarships. Failure to do so will result in the loss of additional scholarships in the subsequent semester. However, additional scholarships may be reinstated if students succeed in meeting the requirements again.
 
Students who fail to complete the English Preparatory Program by the end of their second academic year lose their previously granted scholarships and their enrollment at the University is terminated. Students who exercise their right to sit the TRACE examinations as per Article 44 of Law No:2547 and prove their English proficiency may matriculate to their undergraduate programs. These students are required to pay the tuition fee applicable to newly admitted students in the year of their re-admission to the University, provided that they never received the status of unregistered student during the periods in which they previously studied at the University. The tuition waivers awarded to such students at their first admission to the University are reinstated, excluding cash stipends, dining, housing, and/or transportation support, if any.
