Q1: What is the difference between a visiting and a transfer student?
A visiting student enrols at HTU for a temporary basis, typically for one or maximum two semesters. Visiting students will not be asked to provide HTU with any transcripts and can register for as many courses as their schedule allows. Upon return to their original university, students would have to manage equivalence of HTU courses.
A transfer student enrols at HTU with the aim of earning their degree at HTU. Transfer students will be asked to present their transcripts and all supporting documents. They can register up to 12 credit hours for the summer semester.
Equivalence and transfer can be a time-consuming process, if students are unclear about their plans, they can enrol on visiting student basis for a maximum of two semesters and then carry out the transfer requirements during the course of the Summer semester.
Q2: I would like to enrol at HTU, but my program is not listed
As a visiting student, you are free to decide on the number and nature of the courses you take at HTU.
Transfer students will need to follow the study plan of their program.
Students are encouraged to consult with the program academic advisors for guidance on choosing courses.
Q3: Is admission guaranteed if I apply within the deadline?
HTU will process the applications and provide feedback to the applicants as quickly as possible. Seats are, however, limited and students with higher GPAs will have a higher chance of acceptance.
Do I need to visit the University to complete my registration?
No. You can finalize all the registration and financial requirements remotely.
Q5. I am not a Jordanian citizen and was planning to study abroad. Now I am unable to travel because of the travel ban, can I apply to HTU?
Yes, you can.
Q6. What are the documents I need to complete my application?
Visiting students will only need to fill out the registration form and enrol in the courses.
Transfer students will be required to provide transcripts from their original University and go through the equivalence process.
Where can I see the list of courses offered during the Summer Semester?
HTU is currently preparing a list of courses that will be offered for the summer semester. It is expected that this list be formally announced on the website by the first week of June. Applicants should be aware that even if a course is listed, offering it for the summer semester is contingent upon a sufficient number of students registering for it.
Q8. Is the HTU campus still open as usual?
Teaching and learning at HTU is proceeding as normally as possible using distance learning. Knowledge and simulation-based content is delivered using the Learning Management System (Moodle) and through synchronous teaching sessions on Microsoft Teams. HTU student emails are enabled with a Microsoft 365 Education license.
Q9. How will labs and practical sessions be organized?
So far, practical components of the courses will be delivered using simulations and sharing platforms depending on the nature of the course. If and when the campus is reopened, the University will make arrangements for these sessions to take place at the campus labs and workshops. For more information, please visit the HTU Distance Learning page.
Q10. I live outside Amman; how will I be able to access the campus and studies?
While the lockdown in Jordan remains in effect, students will not be required to visit the campus to attend their classes. If and when that situation changes, students will be duly informed. For more information, please visit the HTU Distance Learning page.
Q11. Can I change my visiting student status to a permanent one at a later stage?
Yes. Students registering as visiting students can decide to change their enrolment to full-time basis. Course equivalence is a lengthy process and requires documentation and communication between the two Universities. This can take place during the course of the Summer semester or later.
Q12. Will the courses I take at HTU be considered for credit at my original University?
Upon completing the course, you will be provided with full course descriptions of the courses that you have studied at HTU along with a certified transcript of the courses and the grades achieved. By presenting these to your original university, you will get credit for these courses. It is strongly advised that you seek formal approval, if possible, from your original university prior to commencing the course that HTU, by showing them the course description. This will allow your original university to compare the course outline from HTU with the course outline in your original study plan.
