Application Form for Extension of Schooling Period for Undergraduates
April 28, 2017
Dear All Undergraduate Graduates of 2017:
The undergraduate graduation affairs for 2017 have officially begun. The University Head Office of Academic Affairs, Academic Affairs Office of each department, and the International Student Office, have started strict evaluation jointly towards each student’s academic progress and evaluation. In order to provide all undergraduates with better services and essential help from the university, the International Student Office is here kindly reminding all undergraduate graduates of 2017 to follow an extremely important notice regarding extension of schooling period as follows:
1、 Application of Schooling Period Extension
Graduates of 2017 who have completed all academic courses and received all credits are qualified to graduate. Graduates who have received more than 2/3 of total credits, are eligible for applying 1 year schooling extension. All applicants are requested to fill in the <Application Form for Extension of Schooling Period for Undergraduates> (Attachment 1). All applicants are requested to submit the above application form before 16:00, May 8, 2017. Those who applied for the extension are requested to complete full amount of tuition fee for the 2017/2018 academic year before June 30th, 2017. International Student Office will help students with residence permit extension accordingly.
Graduates who have earned less than 2/3 of total credits are not qualified to extend schooling period according to university regulation, and they will be given a study proof and transcript before quitting university.
2、 Regarding Returning Students with Certificates of Study Completion
Graduates who have earned more than 3/4 of total credits, or those who have received all credits but failed the defense of graduation thesis, will be able to complete their schooling and receive a Certificate of Study Completion from the university. Students with Certificate of Study Completion are able to come back as Returning Students to complete all remaining courses within the next 2 years. After completing all courses, they can apply for Graduation Certificates.
Returning students are requested to submit a personal written application and guarantee that they will come back to campus to make up all remaining courses from September, 2017, and obey Chinese law and university regulations during study period, Students are requested to buy insurance which is 300RMB per semester.

International Student Office will help returning students who meet the above requirements extend resident permit expiring on January 31th, 2018.
3、Other Important Matters
1) According to Article 69 from the <Regulations of Academic Affairs for All Undergraduates of HUST>, due to academic problems, student who receives only a Graduation Certificate, is able to apply for a Degree Certificate after he/she makes up for all academic requirements during the same year of graduation. Therefore, graduates who do not receive Degree Certificate can only receive it when he/she completes the requirements before the end of same completion year (January 31st, 2018). However, if the student cannot complete all requirements before the end of same graduation year (January 31st, 2018), he/she will be faced with a reality of not being able to receive a Degree Certificate forever.
2) Students who fail to complete all required credits in regulated schooling period and still maintain study qualification in HUST, are eligible to apply for schooling extension for a maximum of 2 years.
3) All graduates of 2017 are suggested to log into HUB system immediately and check all marks carefully. If you are not being able to graduate in June 2017, please apply for the extension of schooling period in time. Any late application for extension will not be considered by the university.
