Cairo University President Gaber Nassar stated on Friday that the students can appeal the decision before the Administrative Court, Egypt-based al-Ahram Arabic news outlet reported.

This is while the university’s Dean of Faculty of Science Mohamed Saleh insisted that the expelled students will not be allowed to apply to any other university, whether public or private, as the decision of their expulsion was reported to the Supreme Council of Universities, according to the report.

In January, the Supreme Council of Universities approved the addition of an article to the University Regulations Law allowing university presidents to expel students involved in “acts of sabotage or terrorism.”

Meanwhile, Egypt's university campuses have witnessed regular protest rallies during the last academic year since the military ouster of the country’s first democratically-elected president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.

Hundreds of protesting students have been handed prison sentences since the passing of a strict protest law last November. Many college students have also been expelled or suspended for alleged “rioting.”

Moreover, a number of students have been killed in recent months during protests that often ended in clashes with the country’s aggressive police and military forces.
