Any due modules of previous years, which may have been selected but did not receive a pass grade must be included in the corresponding semester in the module selection. The period for the selection of modules is announced by the Student Registry in the beginning of every academic semester. The procedure for overdue module selection is described in the Internal Regulation of Operation.

Textbooks’ selection
The selection and distribution of the textbooks to all the Universities and Technical Educational Institutions of the country is done through the internet service EUDOXUS (www.eudoxus.gr). The deadlines that Eudoxus can be used in every semester are specified with a relevant announcement. The students can sign in  www.eudoxus.gr directly, in order to select and receive the textbooks only for the modules which they have included in the corresponding semester in their module selection. For this selection the use of the passwords is necessary. In the beginning of every academic semester a relevant announcement is posted by the Student Registry for the students’ information.
