Undergraduate Admission Requirements Starting from the Academic Year 2009/2010. All applicants graduating from Arabic or Non-Arabic high schools are required to take the Aptitude and Achievement Tests.
As part of its earnest endeavor for excellence, KFUPM annually selects the best students who fulfill the criteria for admission. Since its establishment, KFUPM requires all applicants to sit in entrance Tests that measure their skills, abilities, and comprehension. Therefore, all new undergraduate applicants to KFUPM are required to sit in the Aptitude and Achievement Tests in either Arabic or English conducted by the National Center for Assessment in Higher Education.
Admission is granted to applicants who satisfy all admission requirements, and is based on the applicant’s grades in the secondary school and admission examinations, or any other conditions set by the University.
All newly admitted students must successfully complete the preparatory year, according to its regulations, in two semesters before starting the University level courses. Based on their performance in the preparatory year, and in accordance with the implementation rules, students will be able to select the major of their choice.
