Background preparation :
The background preparation for each graduate program is described at the beginning of each program. In the admission evaluation report received by each applicant, background deficiencies are identified, if any. The student is required to clear the deficiencies at HGU before taking graduate level courses. The graduate student may clear each background deficiency by taking and passing the subject course (an undergraduate course). With advance approval by the academic Council, the student may be allowed to clear a deficiency by taking a challenge exam on the subject. Graduate students in the business programs have the option to take preparatory module studies to clear their deficiencies.
