Scholastic Standing

Good scholastic standing 
A student is in good scholastic standing, if, at the end of the semester, s/he obtains final grade of ‘3’ or better in at least 75% of the total number of academic units in which s/he is registered.

Warning
Any student who obtains final grades at the end of the semester below 3 in 25% to 49% of the total number of academic units in which he is registered shall be warned by the Dean to improve his work.
ProbationAny student who, at the end of the semester, obtains finals grades below 3 in 50% to 75% of the total number of academic units in which he has final grades shall be placed on probation for the succeeding semester and his load shall be limited to the extent to be determined by the Dean. Probation may be removed by passing with grades of 3 or better in more than 50% of the units in which he has finals grades in the succeeding semester.

Dismissal

1. Any student who, at the end of the semester, obtains final grades below 3 in more than 75% but less than 100% of the total number of academic units in which he receives final grades shall be dropped from the rolls of the college.

2. Any student on probation in accordance with the preceding article who again fails in 50% or more of the total number of units in which he receives final grades shall be dropped from the rolls of his college or school subject to the provisions of the following article.

3. Any student dropped from one college shall not ordinarily be admitted to another unit of the University unless in the opinion of the Vice-Chancellor for Student Affairs his natural aptitude and interest may qualify him in another field of study in which case he may be allowed to enroll in the proper college or department.

Permanent Disqualification

1. Any student who, at the end of the semester, obtains final grades below 3 in 100% of the academic units in which he is given final grades shall be permanently barred from readmission to any college of the University.

2. Any student who was dropped in accordance with the rules on Dismissal and again fails so that it becomes necessary again to drop him, shall not be eligible for readmission to any college of the University.

3. Permanent disqualification does not apply to cases where, on the recommendation of the instructors concerned, the faculty certifies that the grades of 5 were due to the student’s unauthorized dropping of the subjects and not to poor scholarship. However, if the unauthorized withdrawal takes place after the mid-semester and the student’s class standing is poor, his grades of 5 shall be counted against him for the purpose of this scholarship rule.

The Dean shall deal with these cases on their individual merits in the light of the recommendations of the Vice-Chancellor for Student Affairs; Provided, that in no case of readmission to the same or another college shall the action be lighter than probation.

A grade of INC is not to be included in the computation. When it is replaced by a final grade, the latter is to be included in the grades during the semester when the removal is made. Required courses in which a student has failed shall take precedence over other courses in his succeeding enrollment.
