The center, in coordination with academic advisers, helps diagnose and resolve the weak students’ problems that risk their success. In addition, there are special instructions to help these students. These instructions available in the student guide. The students can communicate with the center either directly at the deanship of student affairs.
Committee of Student Grievances:
Gulf University believes that it is essential that students obtain their rights and feeling of justice, fairness, and equality during their period of study. Therefore, a committee was formed to consider the student grievances, address them and find appropriate solutions to ensure that the students get their rights. This is also a platform to provide students with the opportunity to have their voices heard, comment on their personal problems and offer feedback and suggestions that would serve other students and develop the university.
There are two types of grievances: the first are related to public services, management and misunderstandings with faculty members and administrative staff. The second type of grievance is related to grades and exam results. The Grievance Committee considers the first type of grievances, while the Exam Committee is responsible for the second type of grievances.
Academic Support Centre (for academically-weak students):
The university takes the responsibility for improving the students’ educational level and enables them to overcome problems which resulted in their low GPA. Therefore, Gulf University established a specialized committee that developed certain procedures to support academically weak students who are at risk of failure. Activation of these procedures depends primarily on the cooperation among the student, the academic advisor and the Centre. All the details needed are included in the Student Guide.
