Important Notes:
 
The hiring of international approved applicants is totally subject to visa availability and prioritization of different departments' applications, and it is not confirmed until the applicant is communicated officially with the contract.
 
Approved applicants are advised not to keep sending e-mails enquiring about their hiring as it is done according to available resources.
 
Approval from KFUPM in graduate studies does not mean in any way a commitment from KFUPM for hiring applicants, as final hiring is subject to many constraints and longer procedures.

3 Closure of files if not complied with the above deadlines:
 
All local and international applicants provisionally approved at KFUPM need to submit the required test score(s)(GRE/GMAT and/or TOEFL) to Admission Office within one year of the initial application date at the latest. Failure to do so will result in a final closure of the file. As an example, applicants who apply in October 2011  will have a  chance to submit the required test score (s) until October 2012 to avoid closure of the file.
 
In case an applicant is still interested in joining KFUPM after the closure of his file, he can re-apply in future admission cycles as a fresh admission with the required test scores submitted along with the application, subject to a new evaluation process.
