The move is specifically designed for the university admission of children of Jordanian women married to foreigners, commonly called the “children of Jordanian mothers”.

The TV said 150 seats were allocated for individuals within that category in the regular program in all fields at Jordan’s state-run universities.

Muhannad Al-Khatib, a spokesperson at the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, explained that “a decision was issued by the Higher Education Council several years ago to allocate 150 seats in the regular program in all fields of study at official Jordanian universities for children of Jordanian women and their right to compete for those seats.”

Khatib said that a requisite for university admission of students whose mothers are Jordanian, but their fathers are foreigners, is to have a Tawjihi, or the general secondary education certificate examination, for the year he is applying for at the university.

He said that “indicates that students matched the requirements to join official universities for the first time in the supplementary session 2022, or the current general session 2022, where students are not entitled to raise their average and take advantage of these seats,” he explained.

It is also stipulated that “the student must hold an identification card issued specifically for individuals whose mothers are Jordanian. He said the card is issued by the civil documentation office.

Khatib said the ministry will announce a date for submitting the unified university admission online for children of Jordanian women, once seats in other categories are filled up.
