Welcome to the Freshman Program

To complete the freshman program each student must complete at least 30 credits in Freshman Arts, Freshman Sciences, or Freshman Engineering. The difference between each freshman program depends on which major the student would like to pursue after completion of freshman program.
The curriculum of the freshman program is based on the requirements of the Ministry of Education. Students who should complete the freshman program should also complete the SAT I and SAT II to receive accreditation by the ministry. When evaluating the student's SAT scores, the Admissions Office will combine the SAT I and SAT II quality points. The SAT quality points for Freshman Arts are 2150 and for Freshman Sciences and Freshman Engineering are 2300, but may be subject to change according to the Ministry of Education. If the student has completed the Lebanese baccalaureate or its equivalence, he or she cannot enroll in the freshman program. Once the student completes the freshman year, he/she gets to enroll in a specific major at the sophomore level based on his/her average or GPA.
