Freshman Program

A student entering the Freshman Program at Notre Dame University-Louaize (NDU) must complete a minimum of 30 credits and choose between the Arts or Science program. The Freshman Program covers courses in Humanities and Social Sciences (9 cr., with a minimum of 3 cr. in each area) and Natural Sciences and Mathematics (6 cr., with a minimum of 3 cr. in Natural Sciences). To progress to sophomore status, Freshman students need to successfully complete 30 cr. of Freshman courses.


In exceptional cases, the Equivalency Committee in the Lebanese Ministry of Education may grant permission for a freshman student missing one course or 5 credits from the freshman requirements to enroll in sophomore courses, contingent on registering for the missing freshman course and passing it.


Freshman students are not allowed to register in sophomore courses without prior authorization.


The Lebanese Ministry of Education's regulations specify subjects within the mentioned areas, including Humanities (Languages/Literature/Philosophy/History), Social Sciences (Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology, Economics, Geography, Business Administration, Management, Political Studies), Natural Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geology, Astronomy, Nutrition), Mathematics, Computer Science, and Arts (Art-Music-Drama, not exceeding 3 cr.).
