The unification process of Samara State Aerospace University named after academician S.P. Korolev (SSAU) and Samara State University (SSU) has entered its final phase. On October 29, 2015, the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation signed an order on amendments being made to SSAU charter, according to which SSU subdivisions affiliate SSAU.

The classes will continue to be given on the schedule, which was approved on September 1. SSU students will continue to receive all the scholarships awarded by scholarship orders until the end of validity period of these orders. “As for the teachers, upon the staff schedule analysis of the two universities, it became clear that no one of SSU employee will receive lower wages than he earns today, - says Valeriy Matveev, SSAU Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs. - These changes will affect the university administration and the heads of duplicative services. The problems are solved individually here”.
“Changing the University name will become the next step, - said Mikhail Kovalev, SSAU Pro-Rector of General Matters. – On August 17, the Supervisory Board adopted a decision that the new institute will be called Samara National Research University named after academician S.P. Korolev. To change the name, it’s necessary to make the appropriate changes to the Charter. In other words, at first, we will amend the Charter relating to the implementation of the order of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation dated 06.22.2015 No.608 “On reorganization of SSAU and SSU”, and then - changes associated with the name change. It is expected that implementation of the second phase will take about a month, as in accordance with the established procedure, amendments to the Charter will be approved again by the order of Ministry of Education and Science of Russia, agreed in the Federal Agency for State Property Management, and then registered in the Federal Tax Service. And after the changes of the second phase, all employees and students of the incorporated university will sign supplementary agreements to their labour contracts and will change their teacher and student ID cards”.
