Withdrawal (W):
Students are expected to complete all courses for which they register. If a student wishes to withdraw from a course, they may be granted the grade "W" (withdrawal without penalty) provided that:
it is not a required course;
student's program does not drop below the required minimum (Undergraduates only)
it is not past the deadline.

Withdrawal/Failure (WF): Any course which a student does not complete or does not receive permission to withdraw will be recorded as "WF" (failure for other than academic reasons,  

i.e. the requirements of the Program were not met). Students who fail to complete first semester courses will not be permitted to continue in the second semester without the program director's approval.

Weekly Hours:
The number of weekly hours per semester. Each semester in the Division of Undergraduate Studies is 11 weeks; all other departments have 14-week semesters.    

 

Credit points: Credit points are determined by the number of hours of study per week.  In the Division of Undergraduate Studies: Four academic hours (180 minutes) per week per semester is equivalent to 3 credit points. In the Summer or Winter Ulpan, 1 credit point equals 20 academic hours.

In all other Departments: each hour per week per semester is equivalent to one credit point; exceptions are preparatory courses, which receive ½ credit per hour per week.  A student may receive additional credit points for special tasks (e.g. 3 points for a seminar paper, or 2 points for a more limited paper). 

 

Transcripts: Students are entitled to receive five copies of their transcript free of charge within six months of completing all the requirements of their program. Additional transcripts, or copies requested after the six- month period, will be sent upon request for a fee.  

Transcripts cannot not be issued in cases where there are outstanding tuition, housing or health insurance fees, owed library books or unreturned dormitory keys.
