Mature Education Preparation
The University allows candidates who do not hold recognized secondary school certificates to enroll at the Freshman Level and take courses toward a degree from AUST. Such applicants should have passed their 25th birthday and passed the AUST English Entrance Examination.
It is to be noted that the Lebanese Ministry of Education and Higher Education recognizes the degrees awarded by AUST, provided that the students are admitted to AUST on the basis of a certificate recognized by the said ministry.
Students who have studied in the AUST External Program without a recognized secondary school certificate prior to their admission to AUST will not be able to receive recognition of their degrees from the Equivalence Committee of the Lebanese Ministry of Education and Higher Education.
