Saudi university uses AI to enroll students

The Saudi Electronic University has linked its admissions portal to the Ministry of Education’s databases Noor and Yakeen, which forms part of the services provided by the Ministry of Interior, to ensure the accuracy of students’ data.

Dr. Maysoon Khoja, dean of admissions and student affairs, said there has been a large number of applications for degree courses, according to a Saudi Press Agency report.

The new admissions portal allows for payments, verifying of documents, and ensuring the fair allocation of seats.

The portal’s services received a rating of 4.8 out of 5 for user satisfaction.

Students can apply to the university’s 13 campuses based in Riyadh, Qassim, Jeddah, Madinah, Yanbu, Tabuk, Hail, Dammam, Jubail, Al-Ahsa, Abha, Jazan and Najran.

Courses available include business administration, e-commerce, accounting, finance, information technology, computer science, data science, public health, health informatics, English and translation, law, and digital media.

The deadline for undergraduate online admissions is Monday, Aug. 1, with acceptance announced on Sunday Aug. 7.

Khoja said the university remains committed to having students from diverse social backgrounds, and accepts applicants who have high school diplomas or equivalent qualifications regardless of age and year of graduation.
