Incorporation and Accreditation

Incorporation

Incorporation concerns the legal aspects of operation of AUM as a university. AUM is incorporated in both the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and in the United States of America.

AUM was incorporated in Jordan by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research on 27 December 2005. This approval gave AUM the authority to operate as a private, non-profit university in Jordan.

AUM received New Hampshire Higher Education Commission (HEC) approval for incorporation in the state of New Hampshire, United States. By filing HEC approved Articles of Agreement with the New Hampshire Secretary, AUM became incorporated in the state of New Hampshire. Following incorporation, AUM sought and received institutional degree granting authority from the New Hampshire Legislature and Governor, subject to New Hampshire Higher Education Commission approval of individual degree programs, which AUM has received.The following is the legislative act that gave AUM institutional degree granting authority:

 

Accreditation

Accreditation is not a legal permission but, rather, deals with the qualitative nature of the educational system. AUM is a private, not-for-profit University, and has been accredited in Jordan since 2011 by the Higher Education Accreditation Commission (HEAC), which operates independently of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, thus providing an independent evaluation of the university. AUM also intends to seek accreditation in the United States.

Student Regulations

 Academic Regulations

Duration of Study for the Bachelor’s Degree

  • The duration of study for a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering, Pharmacy or Architecture is ten semesters or five years, and eight semesters or four years in all other specializations.
  • Students are not allowed to obtain the Bachelor’s Degree in less than four years in Engineering, Pharmacy or Architecture, and three years in all other specializations. The academic year means two regular academic semesters.
  • The maximum duration of study for a student registered for the Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering, Pharmacy or Architecture shall not exceed seven years, and six years in all other specializations.
  • The maximum duration of study for transfer students depends on the number of approved transfer credits.

 

Credit Load (minimum/maximum credits per semester)

  • The minimum credit load for a Bachelor’s Degree student shall be (12) credit hours in each regular semester. With the approval of the dean, and at his/her discretion, a course load of (9) credit hours can be allowed. Excluded from this arrangement are the students whose graduation at the end of that semester is contingent upon studying less than (12) credit hours, or the students who cannot find courses of their curricula in which to register.
  • The maximum credit load for a Bachelor’s Degree student shall be (18) credit hours in a regular semester. Students can add three more credit hours to 21 if their cumulative grade average in the previous semester, including the summer session, was no less than 80%.
  • Students may study three credit hours in excess of the maximum credit load allowed in the semester at the end of which they are expected to graduate.
  • In the summer session, the maximum credit load shall be (9) credit hours.
  • The maximum credit load for a student transferred from the regular program to the special study program shall be (12) credit hours in a regular semester and (6) credit hours in a summer session.

Note : A student who is enrolled in any of the Bachelor’s Degree programs at the University may not enroll at the same time in any other program at the University regardless of its type or level.

 

Classification of Regular Students

1. Based on the total number of credit hours the students have passed, they shall be classified into four or five levels: 1st year, 2nd year, 3rd year, 4th year, and 5th year. Only credits appearing on the student’s official university record at the time of classification will be considered. Classifications are reviewed and updated periodically according to the following table:

 

Credit Hours Earned

Student Classifications

Less than 33

First Year, Freshman

33

Second Year, Sophomore Sophomore

66

Third Year, Junior

99

Fourth Year, Senior

132

Fifth Year, Senior

 

2. Whenever a student is readmitted, transferred from another university or changes program or faculty, the student’s classification will be reviewed by the Admission and Registration Department and will be subject to change according to existing rules.

 

Minimum Residence for Transfer Students

Transfer students from other academic institutions shall study at AUM at least 60% of the courses in the curriculum of the specialization to which he/she has transferred.

 

Attendance

  • Attendance is compulsory for all University students in all lectures, discussions, practical work, and field training (internship) in accordance with the credit hours specified for each course of the curriculum. The instructor shall keep written records of the presence and absence of students on special sheets, to be submitted to the head of the department offering the course at the end of each semester. These records shall be kept until the end of the following semester.
  • Students are not allowed to be absent for more than 15% of the credit hours of the course.
  • If a student exceeds the 15% absence limit from a course without a medical or compelling excuse accepted by the faculty dean, they will be denied sitting its final exam and their grade in that course will be recorded as ‘zero’ (WF). The faculty dean shall convey that information to the Director of Admission and Registration, and the student shall have to repeat the course if it is compulsory. In all cases, the failing grade enters into the calculation of the semester and cumulative average of the student for the purposes of probation and dismissal from the specialization.
  • If a student is absent for more than 15% of the specified hours of a course, due to illness or a compelling excuse accepted by the dean of the faculty offering the course, they shall then be considered “withdrawn” from that course, and will be subject to the withdrawal regulations. The dean shall convey that information to the Director of Admission and Registration, and the “withdrawn” remark shall be posted on that course in the student’s academic record. However, students who represent the Kingdom or University in official activities approved by the university are allowed to be absent for no more than 20% of the class hours; otherwise, they are considered “withdrawn”, and will be subject to the withdrawal regulations.
  • Students who exceed the 15% limit of absence without an excuse shall be considered “administratively withdrawn” upon a recommendation from the instructor and approval of the dean after the end of the period for withdrawal from one or more courses. The Director of Admission and Registration shall thereafter be notified of this measure.
  • A medical excuse must be issued by the university physician or approved by him/her. This certificate must be presented to the faculty dean no later than two weeks from the date of the student’s absence. The dean refers to the student’s record of class attendance to check the student’s earnestness before granting approval. In the other compelling cases, students must present their excuse within a week from the date of the end of the excuse period.
  • The instructor, with the approval of the Dean, shall provide the Director of Admission and Registration with a list of students who have exceeded the 15% absence limit at the end of the 13th week of the regular semester or the end of 6th week of the summer session.

 

Course Grading System

  • The final grade of each course is the aggregate of the grades of the final exam and the semester work. This does not apply to the Military Science course, where the results are recorded as pass or fail without grades.
  • The grades of each course are calculated and recorded in percentage form, and the number of credit hours specified for that course is indicated.
  • The general framework of exams and their schedule shall be as follows:

1. Grades of purely theoretical courses are distributed among exams and related assignments as follows:

Evaluation Means

Grade %

Midterm Exam

30%

Participation, Assignments & Quizzes

10%

Research Project & Term Papers

20%

Final Exam

40%

Total 100%

The Deans Council may, upon the recommendation of the Faculty Council, approve the distribution of grades in another method for special courses.

2. Theoretical courses involving a practical part:

The percentages of the theoretical and practical parts are determined out of 100%, taking into consideration the number of credit hours allotted to the theoretical part and that

allotted to the practical part. The grade of the theoretical part shall, therefore, be calculated as indicated in (1) above as follows:

 

Number of credit hours allotted to the theoretical part

Grade X ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Number of credit hours allotted to the course

 

The grade for the practical part shall be calculated in the way agreed upon by the department.

3. Practical courses:

The department council concerned shall clearly describe the method of grade distribution in these courses, provided that they get the approval of the faculty council.

 

  • Credit-hour courses involving seminars, research papers, field training, graduation projects, and practical labs are excluded from the arrangement above. The faculty council in such cases shall determine how the grades are distributed, and methods to assess the student’s achievement. The Director of Admission and Registration shall be notified of these matters at the beginning of the semester

 

 

Calculation of the Semester and Cumulative Grade Average

  • The Semester Grade Average (SGA) is calculated by multiplying the final grade of each course by the number of credit hours of that course and then dividing the grand total by the number of credit hours registered by the student in the semester:

  • The cumulative grade average (CGA) is computed by multiplying the final grade of each course entered into the average by the number of credit hours of that course, and then dividing the resulting total of the sums of multiplication by the total number of credit hours, as illustrated below:

 

 

 

  • GA and CGA are rounded to the nearest decimal digit.
  • The minimum “pass” grade in any course is 50%, and the minimum final grade is 35%, which is the university definition of “zero”.
  • A verbal description is given below for grade percentages of individual courses:

 

90 -100%                                       Excellent

80 - 89 %                                      Very Good

70 - 79 %                                      Good

60 - 69 %                                      Fair

50 - 59 %                                      Weak

Below 50 %                                  Fail

 

A verbal description is given below for SGA and CGA:

84 - 100%                                     Excellent

76-  83.9%                                    Very Good

68 - 75.9%                                    Good

60 - 67.9%                                    Fair

 

Appealing a Final Exam Grade

  • A student can request a review of their grade in the final exam of any course within (7) days at most from the date of announcing the exam results. In this case, the dean shall verify that no error was made in the calculation or recording of grades, and that no questions were left uncorrected, by appointing a committee comprised of the dean or anyone whom he deputizes, the head of the department, and the course instructor or one of its instructors. Once the dean is certain of the presence of an error in the calculation or recording of the grade, they shall then correct the error in coordination with the course instructor and the head of the department.
  • The final exam review forms are available in the Department of Admission and Registration.
  • The student shall pay a fee of JD 10 for each final grade review they request.

 

Incomplete Grades

  • Students who absent themselves from an announced final exam of a course without an excuse accepted by the dean of the faculty offering the course get a “zero” grade in that exam.
  • The dean of the faculty conveys their decision of accepting the excuse presented by the student who absents themselves from an announced final exam of a course to the course instructor to give them a make-up exam, provided that the make-up exam is conducted no later than the second week of the following semester in which the student has enrolled. The dean also conveys their decision to the Director of Admission and Registration. The student has to submit their excuse to the faculty dean within a week from the date of the exam they missed.
  • If a student postponed their study for the semester following the semester in which the absence from the final exam of a course occurred, they must sit the make-up exam in the first semester in which they go back to regular study.
  • An “Incomplete” grade is given for a course in which the student was absent from its final exam with an acceptable excuse.
  • If the course instructor has not been informed of the acceptance of the excuse by the time the grades are recorded, the student’s grade in the final exam is recorded as “zero”, and the other course grades are recorded in detail, including the final aggregate total, until a decision is taken concerning the final exam grade.
  • if a student does not show up for the make-up exam at the designated time in accordance with these regulations, they will be given the grade “zero” in that exam.
Academic Probation
  • If a student fails to obtain the required 60% CGA in a semester, except for the first semester of enrollment at the university or the summer session, the student shall be placed on academic probation, and will, consequently, receive the first academic warning.
  • Having been placed on probation, the student must remove the effect of that probation by raising their CGA to 60% or above within at most two semesters (excluding the summer session) of the date of probation; otherwise, they will receive the second and third academic warnings.
  • If a student fails to remove the effect of probation after the elapse of the two designated semesters, the student shall be dismissed from specialization. However, the students who have successfully completed (99) credit hours or more of their curriculum, including the courses that have been transferred from another academic institution, are excluded from this arrangement.
  • If the student’s CGA has been raised to 59.0-59.9% upon the completion of the two semesters, the student shall continue to be on probation, and is given one additional semester (excluding the summer session) to raise their CGA to 60% or above. If the student fails to do so, they shall be dismissed from specialization.
  • A student dismissed from specialization for a CGA lower than 59% can transfer to the special study program. In this case, they shall be given two semesters, excluding the summer session, to raise their CGA to the required minimum (60%). If they fail to do so, they will be dismissed permanently from specialization. This article shall not, however, apply to those students whose CGA goes below 50%.
  • A student shall be considered as dismissed from the University if their CGA falls below 50% in any semester following the first semester of enrollment at the University.
  • If a student’s result in a semester was “Incomplete” and hence the student was at the risk of dismissal because of their low CGA, the ultimate and definitive decision of dismissal shall be taken as the grades of that semester are completed, and their dismissal shall be effective as of the end of the semester if the CGA is not raised to the required limit.
  • A student is allowed to register for other courses in the following semester. If they are dismissed after the grades of all courses studied in the previous semester have been completed, the courses registered for in the following semester will be considered as “special study” courses, according to the instructions for the special study program.
  • The study program of the student, in this case, is arranged, using a commitment form, prepared by the Admission and Registration Department, explaining the academic status of the student and university regulations.
  • The maximum study load for special study students shall be (12) credit hours in a regular semester, and (6) credit hours in a summer session.
  • A student who has been dismissed from a specialization for any reason is not eligible for readmission into the same specialization.
  • Decisions of administrative drop, academic probation, dismissal from specialization, transfer to the special study program, and expulsion from the University shall be executed by the Director of Admission and Registration.
  • The posting of decisions of academic probation, dismissal from specialization, ultimate expulsion from the university, and any other academic matters concerning students on the bulletin board in the concerned student’s faculty or in the Admission and Registration Department, or through their official email address or SMS message to their mobile phones, is considered a notification in the legal sense.

 

Repeating a Course

  • A student who gets a “Fail” grade in any compulsory course in their curriculum must repeat that course.
  • A student may repeat any course in their curriculum only once to raise their CGA if their grade in that course was less than 60%.
  • If a student repeats a course, the new grade is recorded as it is.
  • Only the new grade shall be calculated in the SGA and CGA computation.
  • In the case of a student’s repeating a course, the credit hours of that course shall be included in the required credit hours for graduation only once. Students may not, however, repeat a course they have already passed more than twice.
  • If a student studied an elective course and received a “Fail” grade in it, then he/she studied another course to compensate for the failed elective course to complete the curriculum requirements, the compensating course shall be considered as a repeated course for the failed elective course for the purpose of computing their grades in the SGA and CGA averages. This procedure is executed immediately after the student has completed the compensating course, and upon their submission of a written statement that this course is compensating for another course and that they will not repeat the compensated-for course another time.
  • A student who has studied any course or courses at the University and received a “Fail” grade in them may be allowed to study those courses at another university, recognized by the University. Such courses shall be considered, after they are duly transferred, as repeated courses.

 

Course / Semester Withdrawal

  • A student is allowed to add/drop courses during the period specified in the university calendar, in which case no “withdrawn” remark is recorded next to the course which they have dropped.
  • A student is allowed to withdraw from one or more courses during the first (13) weeks of the regular semester, and the first (6) weeks of the summer session, in which case the “withdrawn” remark is recorded on their transcript.
  • Withdrawal, in this case, is completed using a special form prepared by the Admission and Registration Department. The form shall include the recommendation of both the course instructor and the academic advisor and be approved by the Director of Admission and Registration.
  • The number of credit hours a student registers for shall not, as a consequence of withdrawal, go below the minimum load of credit hours allowed by these regulations.
  • A student whose excused absence exceeds 15% of the prescribed hours for all courses in a semester shall be considered “withdrawn” from that semester. Accordingly, the “withdrawn” remark shall be denoted on their transcript, and their study in that semester shall be considered postponed.
  • A student has the right to submit a request to the faculty dean to withdraw from all the courses registered in a semester. Upon the consent of the dean, the student’s study in that semester will be considered postponed. Such a request must be submitted within (13) weeks from the beginning of the regular semester and (6) weeks from the beginning of the summer session.

 

Change of Major

  • A student may transfer from one specialization to another at the university if a vacancy in the specialization to which they wish to transfer is available, provided no disciplinary measure above ‘forewarning’ was inflicted on them, and the student has met either of the following two conditions

1. Having a grade average in the General Secondary School Certificate or its equivalent that was accepted for admission into the specialization to which they wish to transfer in the year of obtaining that certificate, or in the year in which they wish to transfer.

2. The grade average required for admission into the specialization to which they wish to transfer, according to the general rules, being equal to or less than the average required for admission into the specialization from which they wish to transfer in the year they were enrolled in that specialization, or in the year in which they wish to transfer.

  • When a student transfers to another specialization, the courses they select from among the courses they studied in the previous specialization can be counted in and included in the curriculum of the new specialization, and their grades in those courses shall be computed in their CGA.
  • If a student studied a course in the specialization to which they have transferred, and that course had been studied in the previous specialization, and they do not want that course to be counted at the time of transfer, that course shall be considered as a repeated course.
  • Students may not be allowed to transfer from one specialization to another more than three times.
  • If a student discontinues their study for a semester because they did not register or because of dismissal from specialization, and wishes in the same semester to transfer to another specialization at the university, the discontinuation of study for that semester would be considered as postponement for the purpose of completing the transfer procedures.
  • A student who has been dismissed from a specialization and wishes to transfer to another specialization, and if their discontinuation of study has exceeded one semester, but they have not yet completed the transfer procedures, shall be considered as dismissed from the university.
  • A student dismissed from a specialization for a low cumulative average, or prior to the ultimate dismissal from the university while still in the special study program, may be allowed to transfer to another specialization if they meet the conditions above.

 

Postponement of Study

  • The maximum period of postponement of study shall not exceed two consecutive or non-consecutive semesters.
  • Students may submit a petition to postpone their study before the beginning of the semester, but no later than the end of the semester they wish to postpone, provided that they provide convincing reasons to the competent authorities entitled to grant approval, as follows:

1. The faculty dean, if the requested postponement is for one semester.

2. The faculty council, if the requested postponement is for a period exceeding one semester, but not for more than two consecutive or non-consecutive semesters.

3. The return of the student to the university in such cases is contingent upon the availability of a vacancy in their specialization.

  • If a semester ends, while a student is not registered or that semester is not postponed, the registration of that student shall be considered annulled, unless they have submitted a compelling excuse convincing to the competent authorities, who will grant them approval for readmission as follows, provided a vacancy is available in their specialization:

1. The faculty council, if the discontinuation of study did not exceed one semester.

2. The Deans Council, if the discontinuation of study exceeded one semester.

If the competent authority accepts the student’s excuse, the discontinuation of study shall be considered as postponement, and is counted in the maximum period allowed for postponement.

  • Postponement of study is not allowed for new or transfer students unless they have completed one semester of their enrollment in the specialization.
  • If a disciplinary measure stipulating the cancellation of registration in all courses registered in a semester or the temporary dismissal for a semester or more is inflicted on a student, this semester/these semesters will be considered as postponed, and will be counted in the maximum period allowed for postponement. However, the upper limit for postponement may be overlooked only for the purpose of executing the disciplinary measure.
  • The postponement period shall not be counted within the maximum period allowed for earning the Bachelor’s Degree.

 

Transfer Students

  • Students are allowed to transfer to the University if there is a vacancy for them and if they meet the following conditions:

1. Having a grade average in the General Secondary School Certificate or its equivalent acceptable for admission into the specialization transferred to at the university in the year of obtaining that certificate, or in the year of registration at the university.

2. Having been transferred from a university, university college, or university institute recognized by the university.

3. Completing at the University no fewer than 60% of the credit hours required for graduation in accordance with the curriculum approved at the time of admission.

4. Having previously attended an institution that follows a regular system which requires attendance. The valid regulations issued by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research concerning transfer credits and course equivalence shall be applicable to the transfer student.

5. Having obtained a good-conduct certificate from the university from which they intend to transfer.

  • Course equivalence shall be done by the concerned academic departments to all courses completed by the students in any other university during the first semester of their enrollment at the university. Students may not challenge the decision concerning the courses that have been transferred after the end of their first semester at the university.
  • If a student is admitted as a new freshman at the University, and if they have successfully completed courses at another university, university college, university institute, or a community college recognized by the University, and if those courses fall within the curriculum of the specialization in which they were admitted, no more than 40% of the courses in the curriculum of the specialization to which they have transferred shall be counted, without computing their grades in the student’s SGA or CGA, provided that their grade in each of those courses was not less than the cumulative average required for graduation at the university from which they have transferred.
  • If a student is admitted as a new freshman at the University, and if that student has successfully completed courses required for earning a degree before they were admitted into the University, and if those courses fall within the curriculum of the new specialization in which they were admitted, those courses shall be reviewed for transfer by the concerned academic departments. The regulations governing course transfer from other institutions shall be applicable in this case concerning the allowed period of time and number and type of credit hours required for graduation.
  • As for the transfer student and the new student, for whom a number of courses have been transferred, they shall successfully complete at the University no less than 60% of the credit hours required for graduation in the curriculum approved at the time of admission, including the last two semesters of study.
  • Transfer petitions shall be submitted to the Admission and Registration Department, which forwards them to the Student Transfer Committee. The committee reviews the petitions and takes a decision of approval/disapproval concerning each one of them.

 

Graduation Requirements

A Bachelor’s Degree shall be awarded upon the fulfillment of the following requirements:

  • Success in all of the courses required for graduation in the curriculum of the specialization in which the student was registered.
  • Obtaining a cumulative average no less than 60%.
  • Completion of all other requirements of the curriculum according to which the student graduates.
  • Spending the minimum period required for obtaining the Bachelor Degree, and not exceeding the maximum limit.

The Library

The permanent and full-sized AUM Library will be constructed in Phase II of campus construction in accordance with the University Master Plan. However, we planned interim arrangements in Phase I to have sufficient space for library holdings, including books, reference materials, and journals in addition to several reading rooms distributed in the academic buildings that are operational in Phase I. According to this interim arrangement for library space, we designed and constructed two large rooms to hold all library materials: one for science-related subjects, and the other for the humanities. Currently, the building of the Faculty of Business and Finance houses the two sets of materials. Each of these rooms has an area of 100 square meters (1230 square feet) and is fully furnished with shelves and stacks.

The library provides a collection of print and electronic resources. The book collection contains over 40,000 prints and a number of databases for e-journals and e-books. The library also accommodates both wired and wireless computer access.

The library organizes knowledge resources through technical methods of cataloging, classification, and indexing by using the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rule 2, the Dewey Decimal Classification, and the International Standard Bibliographic Description. Computers are used in all of the library’s services and activities, in addition to using a full integrated library system called Koha to support those services.

The interim arrangement also provides 8 reading rooms, 100 square meters each, fully furnished with reading tables, computers, and chairs for library users.

The permanent AUM Library is currently being designed and construction of the library is expected to be completed by end of 2016.

Standard library services provided to students include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Circulation: intranet style system, accessed by means of computer terminals. As with most contemporary systems, students access lending facilities without the assistance of staff, by means of their university identity cards. Circulation helps users with all procedures related to checking out and returning books, and is also responsible for shelving, locating missing books, and recalling books checked out to other users, among many other jobs.
  • Cataloging: The AUM Online Catalog is the main access point to the library's collections. The link below allows the student to use specialized catalogs and tools that provide access to additional AUM resources: http://library.aum.edu.jo/
  • Reserve Books Shelf: This shelf is found at the circulation desk. It contains copies of recommended books and other materials placed on reserve by teachers for students in specific classes. They are designated either for room use only or overnight loan.
  • Reference services are housed in a separate section of the library, with no borrowing privileges for either faculty or students. It is expected that some of the reference collection will be accessible by means of the virtual library. Reference Services assists students in finding books, using the on-line catalog, searching the card catalog, selecting resources, and answering general information questions. The Reference Section in this area includes encyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases and other general and subject-specific reference books.
  • Internet Search: The AUM Library personnel are available to guide users in finding information on the World Wide Web. The library webpage on AUM's website provides links to its electronic databases and the library’s collection.
  • Printing, Scanning, and Photocopying: This service is provided to students to enable them to copy, print, and scan library materials at reasonable cost within the library premises according to regulations governing these processes.
  • Instruction: All freshman students and commencing faculty members will be provided with instruction on how to access library materials efficiently and effectively, particularly the virtual collection, as they may not have used such a facility previously. All students will have access to free instruction on study techniques, essay writing, how to reference materials, research practice and conventions for academic standards.
