The Department of Application and Student Affairs is considered as the cultural, scientific and strategic edifice for the university, in addition to being the first advancing doorway, which students who are preparing for the new scientific life have to surmount. The department is also in a continuous and renewed connection with the student body for the entire future scientific journey. Furthermore, it is regarded as the solid and constant base for the teaching process, since it specifies the responsibility which it undertakes through applying the rules, regulations and instructions which help simplify the educational and teaching process and making it easy to accomplish.
With its assumption of all responsibilities and instructions that are concerned with the guidance, application and acceptance of the students, the department’s vital role is thus visible and can be seen in the independence of students who are high school graduates, then working on guiding, visualizing and activating their basic role in education by means of work and burnishing thoughts and the special talents possessed by the students. Let us not forget that the Department of Application and Student Affairs is the main motivator behind energizing the freshmen’s minds, bringing out their personalities and helping them to make all the right decisions for their future by depending on their personality, thoughts and their pen mind’s liveliness. This is the key to embracing the university’s life with all sincerity, devotion and peace of mind.
The department is part of the students’ process of transition from high school stage to the university stage and therefore it is called “the acceptance into studies stage”, where students are helped to be accepted in the faculties which they desire by depending on their average and on the enrollment of students accepted in the faculties according to the policy which is yearly put together by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, and with regard to the specializations available.
DIVISIONS WITHIN THE DEPARTMENT
• Submission and Guidance Division: which is responsible for applying a chain of matters concerned with the acceptance of students in the university (faculties) or other educational institutions, then guiding them through the process of application, taking into consideration the average, sequence and desire.
• Application Division: This is responsible for applying the rules, regulations and instructions that are issued by the ministry, then generalizing it on all the university’s faculties.
• Summer Training Division: which is one of the very important divisions as it is the main link between the university and governmental institutions and especially regarding the application of what the students have learnt whether knowledge, culture or theoretical sciences. So the division’s task is to keep in contact with those institutions and coordinate with them in order to ensure the right opportunities for the students according to their different specializations for the purpose of practicing scientific training under the supervision of qualified staff members, with the further advantage of tracking the students’ matters after their graduation.
