General Requirements

Future University in Egypt welcomes applications for undergraduate degrees for both the Fall and Spring Semesters. Students are eligible to apply through any of the following methods:

Early Admissions

Because of the limited number of students admitted to Future University, students in their final secondary school year are encouraged to apply for an early admission. This reserves a place at Future University as early as ten days after receiving secondary school results. Students must fulfill all secondary school graduation requirements and meet all the University’s admission requirements for final admission.

Regular Admissions

All students are welcome to apply through the regular admission process. Non-Egyptian, or Egyptian students with international certificates, whose exam results are announced late, will be permitted to apply after the regular admission deadline, depending on the dates of their examination results. However, it is advised that these students reserve a place through early admission. For deadlines and procedures, please refer to the Admissions Office.

Academic Transcripts

An official transcript of university credits, bearing the university seal and the signature of the President of the University, is a record of the student’s academic achievement. A student may obtain copies of his or her transcript by written, faxed, or personal request to the Admissions Office at Future University’s campus. The request must include the full legal name, the dates of attendance, and the nationality of the student,  before an official transcript will be released.

Academic Advising
    Each faculty has its own advisory system to provide students with individualized, personal, support throughout their University career. Each student will be provided with a primary academic advisor whose responsibilities include the following:
  • Information needed to plan the chosen program of study.
  • Providing assistance in the selection and registration of appropriate courses, including pre-requisites.
  • Monitoring the academic progress of students.
  • Providing advice on academic and career choices.
  • Marketing referrals to other specialized resources (e. g. special tutoring, psychological and health services, financial aid, etc.)

Both advisors and advisees share responsibilities in order for the advising relationship to succeed. Advisers shall encourage advisees to become engaged in their education, to meet their educational goals, and to develop good learning habits. Advisees should routinely contact their advisors each semester and must assume ultimate responsibility for course scheduling, program planning, and the successful completion of graduation requirements.
