The freshman program is a requirement for students who have completed a 12 year program and obtained a high school degree that is considered a non-Lebanese baccalaureate. This high school diploma should be awarded by the government or recognized by a private school. To complete the freshman program each student must complete at least 30 credits in Freshman Arts, Freshman Sciences, or Freshman Engineering. The difference between each freshman program depends on which major the student would like to pursue after completion of freshman program.

The curriculum of the freshman program is based on the requirements of the Ministry of Education. Students who should complete the freshman program should also complete the SAT I and SAT II to receive accreditation by the government. When evaluating the student's SAT scores, the Admissions Office will combine the SAT I and SAT II quality points. The SAT quality points for Freshman Arts are 2600 and for Freshman Sciences and Freshman Engineering are 2750, but may be subject to change according to the Ministry of Education. If the student has completed the Lebanese baccalaureate or its equivalence he or she cannot enrol in the freshman program.
