SAGA University Application Module Expands
The American University in Dubai (AUD), a top-ranking university in the U.A.E., is the latest university to be added to the SABIS® Alumni Global Association (SAGA) University Application module. AUD joins a long list of universities in the region that accept online applications through SAGA.
Students who are preparing to graduate from SABIS® Network schools can access the SAGA University Application module at their convenience and apply directly to a growing list of universities. The module seeks to simplify the sometimes daunting university application process by linking application deadlines and requirements for each school to each applicant. In applying to a university, students complete the necessary application forms and then activate an automated request process for any necessary letters of recommendation or transcripts. The module also facilitates the timely delivery of required information through alerts targeting both the student and the school’s university advisor, registrar, or other relevant staff member.
University admission requirements often vary from one university to the next. However, with the SAGA University Application module, the process has become seamless for each student, greatly reducing mistakes or delays in the application process.
“We’re making the lives of our graduates easier. Students can sit down and apply to as many universities as they want. The minute the student applies, the school’s university advisor is alerted and prepares the other documents as needed,” Dr. Zahi Ramadan Operations Director of Higher Education for SABIS® Educational Services explained. “The university receives a complete file in one transmission and the student is notified by E-mail once his/her university application has been sent in. This process saves the school and university time and effort. It’s a win-win situation.”
In Lebanon, numerous top-ranking universities — Beirut Arab University, Haigazian University, Holy Spirit University of Kaslik, Notre Dame University, the American University of Beirut (AUB), the Lebanese American University (LAU), and the University of Balamand — are already part of the SAGA University Application module.
Since its official launch in the fall of 2013, the SAGA University Application module has been used by hundreds of students and contributed to their successful admission to the universities of their choice.
