Acceptances



Applicants who do not attain the minimum required English proficiency scores but meet other SGUB admission standards and requirements, will be admitted, but must complete the Intensive English program.

Accepted applicants for the Fall 2021 semester will be asked to make a commitment by providing a 450,000 LBP enrollment deposit by August 31, 2021. This deposit is deducted from the tuition of students once they enroll.



Tuition

SGUB uses a flat rate for calculating the tuition of full-time undergraduate students in the Faculty of Arts & Sciences. Every major/program has a cost per credit-hour; this credit-hour price is used to determine the tuition of students registered for fewer than 12 credit-hours, including during the summer session. Students enrolled in more than 12 credit-hours will only be charged for 12 credit-hours. Students are therefore encouraged to enroll in at least 15 credit-hours to achieve the maximum benefit from the flat-rate tuition; this flat rate is applied as long as students remain in Good Standing.

Financial Support

At SGUB, we have made it our goal to help you realize yours by offering a wide range of Financial Aid plans to qualified undergraduate students facing family and financial difficulties or constraints regardless of religion, culture, gender, or nationality. As a service to our community and society, we will provide financial assistance to ensure that students can afford a premier education at SGUB.

Accepting financial aid applications from June 1 to August 31, 2021.
