PROVISIONAL ADMISSION
 

AUK offers provisional admission to students whose admissions GPA falls below 2.25, but not less than 2.0, and to students who have not submitted all required documentation. Students admitted on provisional status must meet all conditions indicated below.

  1. Students with High School/College Transfer GPA below 2.25:

Students who meet the university admissions requirements and the English proficiency requirements for undergraduate admission, but whose high school/college transfer GPA falls below 2.25 (the required GPA for regular admissions) but not less than 2.0, may be admitted provisionally to the university. In this case, the student’s undergraduate admission remains provisional, pending fulfillment of the following requirements:

  • High school students in this category must complete at least 24 semester credits hours of baccalaureate-level courses in their first two (2) semesters at AUK with a cumulative GPA of 2.25 or higher.
  • Transfer students (incl. Diploma Holders) with 24 or more credits from an accredited university admitted under this category must complete at least 12 credits in their first semester at AUK with a 2.25 GPA or higher.

Students failing to meet the above requirements will be permanently dismissed from the university and will not be entitled to any refund of their tuition or University fees.

  1. Students Pending Completion of In-Progress Coursework

Students who are currently enrolled in high school or another university/college may receive provisional admission to the American University of Kuwait. In this case, the student’s undergraduate admission remains provisional, pending completion of in-progress coursework for the period of one semester only. The following rules apply:

  • If a student fails to submit a certified final transcript, the student’s acceptance to the university will be rescinded and s/he will be prevented from continuing studies at AUK until s/he satisfies these requirements.
  • If a student submits a final transcript that no longer meets AUK’s admission requirements, fails to meet the Ministry of Education’s equivalency requirements, or cannot provide a final transcript certified by the Ministry of Higher Education, the student’s acceptance to the university will be rescinded and s/he will be prevented from continuing studies at AUK until s/he satisfies these requirements.

NOTE: Students who meet the university admissions requirement, but who are missing one subject to be considered in the “Scientific” track may be admitted provisionally to the university. In this case, the student’s admission remains provisional, pending fulfillment of the following requirements:

  • The missing subject is to be taken at Kuwait University, as a non-degree student, and passed with a grade of C or above.
  • The grade will not be calculated in the high school GPA, nor in the university GPA.
  • Students will not be allowed to declare in a major requiring Scientific High School until the fulfillment of the above requirement.
Students who have their admission to the American University of Kuwait rescinded for failing to satisfy these requirements will not be entitled to any refund of their tuition or university fees.
