13 Thousand Students Admitted to KKU
King Khalid University represented by the Deanship of Admissions and Registration announced the enrollment of more than 13K students for the upcoming academic year.
Dean of Admissions and Registration, Dr. Abdulmohsin Al-Qarni, confirmed that King Khalid University devoted all efforts to provide a streamlined admission process from the admission application form to the issuance of the university identification cards. The admission process was 100% electronic, which offered a fair chance to all applicants through standard requirements and conditions.
The admission process consisted of three stages: 6435 students were accepted in the first stage, 2934 students were accepted in the second stage, and 3878 students were accepted in the third stage.
Dean Al-Qarni highlighted that a set of conditions stipulated by the University Council were applied during the admission period, which is in accordance with the requirements of the Ministry of Education, noting that the admission for this year witnessed remarkable student performance percentages. This was complemented by a firm intention to match student preferences to vacant seats using proprietary software. The newly implemented software is the first of its kind in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and provided 2K students the opportunity to change their majors based on availability.
