King Khalid University, represented by the Deanship of Admissions and Registration, announced the dates of admission and registration for the upcoming academic year. This announcement coincides with the launch of new majors and services.
The Dean of Admissions and Registration Dr. Abdulmohsen Al-Qarni explained that the University is keen to increase the number of admitted applicants to accommodate an optimal number students -- an increase of 10% from last year. He further noted that this year's registration is moderated by King Khalid University, Baha University, Bisha University, Jazan University, and Najran University. The collaboration is expected to enhance and improve registration capacity.
Dean Al-Qarni added: "10 new areas of study have been offered by the University at its main campus including architecture, planning, law, industrial engineering and fashion design. Additionally, new majors have been introduced to satellite campuses that include English, computer science, finance, biology, Arabic, and Islamic studies."
Dean Al-Qarni pointed out that the Deanship of Admissions and Registration at King Khalid University has provided two new special services for students that will help the accessibility of registration and ease the process of transferring into majors and colleges. During the admissions period, every student will now be granted a registration number which will allow students that were not accepted the chance of a late admission when an opening is available. In the case of transferring into new fields and career paths, students can transfer into different majors during their admission period and complete administrative transactions online without the need to go to the admissions office of the University.

Al-Solamy, launched the Electronic Games and Application Club in the presence of the university vice rector of academic affairs, the dean of student affairs, the vice rector of student activities, and the general supervisor of the university iT administration.

King Khalid University faculty member, Chronic Disease Consultant, and a member of the American Diabetes Committee, Dr. Hassan Al-Mousa, recommended ten health guidelines for diabetic patients to mitigate the risk of lowering their blood sugar too much, which can severely affect their health.
Dr. Al-Mousa explained that those with diabetes should plan with their health care team before fasting. He also explained that they should follow any insulin or medication regimen their doctor recommended for fasting. Dr. Al-Mousa then advised that a patient should consume small, healthy meals and snacks during the period of Iftar while avoiding sugary and fatty foods. Also, a patient should drink a fair amount of fluids and exercise preferably at night only. In the case of a patient’s treatment requiring a calorie count meal diet, one must commit to the quantities required and stick to healthy foods. For oral tablets, one should keep the same dosage they took before Ramadan but reduce the dose at school or not take it. As for patients that use insulin injections, injections must be taken twice a day in the morning/evening and at the same dosage level previously used. In the case of long-acting insulin treatment, the dose should be reduced by 30%. For rapid insulin doses, it is advised that doses be taken before breakfast while lowering the dose in school and dropping the usual third dose.
