In order to ensure that the student completed the course work, the ODUS Plus is available to both the student and program management for keeping the record. After ensuring that a student has completed at least 110 credit hours, the program management allows the student to start a summer (10 weeks, 2 credit hours) compulsory training in the industry under the supervision of a faculty member. After the student successfully completes the degree course work and summer training with and after obtaining a release form from Deanship of Admission and Registration, he would be eligible for obtaining his Bachelor‘s degree certificate. Students are expected to graduate after completing 10 semesters and will be disqualified from their program if they do not fulfill the graduation requirements within a maximum period of 15 semesters. In exceptional cases, the University Council can give an exceptional opportunity to the students to fulfill the graduation requirements within maximum of 20 semesters. The minimum GPA for graduation from FER programs is 2.75. Students whose GPAs are lower than 2.75 but have otherwise fulfilled all other graduation requirements must retake enough of the technical courses in which their grade is lower than C to bring their GPA up to the 2.75 minimum.
