The student rights are restored by maintaining the status that the student had before the interruption of studies. In other cases, the student’s rights are restored in the paid educational system.
A former student of a non-accredited institution is not allowed to reinstate his/her student rights at an accredited institution.
Applications for reinstating student rights in the full-time study mode are submitted to the Rector of the SAFAA within two weeks before and after the academic sessions of the semesters. A transcript of records or a copy of the student’s record book must be attached to the reinstatement application.
A reinstatement order is issued by SAFAA upon a positive decision to restore student rights if there are only academic debts at the time of reinstatement.
In case of differences in subjects, the institution issues an attachment order when making a positive decision on restoring student rights.
The learner is given the opportunity to submit (maximum one retake) subject distinctions before the beginning of the examination period of the given semester. After passing the subject distinctions, the student is enrolled in the given institution.
If the student is enrolled in the paid education system, the decree of restoring student rights is made only after making the required payment within the time frame set by the contract concluded between the SAFAA and the student.
The student is released from the study sessions of the subjects for which he has previously gained credits. The student is obliged to pay only for the subject courses (modules) that he is to pass.
The student reinstatement is implemented for the semester in which the studies were interrupted, if at the time of reinstatement the subject distinctions and academic debts to be retaken do not exceed 20 credits. Otherwise, the student is offered to restore his student rights in a previous (lower) semester for which, in the case of continuing the studies, the requirement of subject differences mentioned in this point are satisfied.
Students who have dropped their studies will regain their student rights from the moment of droping studies, if the student has submitted an application to restore his/her status no later than two months after the date of disappearing of the reason for dropping the studies, regardless of the number of places specified by the license for the given profession (academic programme), caused by subject differences and academic debts.
Students who have dropped their studies at the time of reinstatement, in the absence of a suitable course in the previous profession (academic programme), upon the recommendation of the university and with the student’s consent, can restore their student rights for a related profession (academic programme), and in the absence of the latter, for another profession (academic programme), regardless of the given profession (academic programme) from the number of places specified by the license, subject differences and academic debts.
Learners who have restored their student rights in the paid education system can participate in the competition for the allocation (rotation) of the student allowance after studying for at least one academic year.
Students with the status defined by the legislation of the Republic of Armenia can continue their studies with full tuition fee refund in the form of a student allowance.
