Course and Class Requirements
- The academic year is divided into two semesters of 15 weeks each.
- The minimum number of class hours for a course in a semester is approximately 45.
- The concerned teacher may schedule additional sessions for a course.
Each student is required to attend all classes of the course registered and admitted to and held during the semester. Unexcused absences may result in reducing the course grade of the student, award of Not Qualified (NQ) grade or in even dismissal of the student.
Passing of all courses individually with at least D grade in each course and maintaining an overall CGPA of 2.0 is the minimum requirement for the award of the degree.
Dismissal From The Program
A student failing to maintain a CGPA of 1.5 at the end of the first academic year and CGPA 1.8 at the end of the second academic year can be dismissed from the program. Students not clearing first semester papers by fourth semester, second semester papers by fifth semester, third semester papers by sixth semester will be either dismissed from the program or asked to repeat the respective semester.
A minimum attendance of 85% is required to be eligible to appear in examination conducted by the University. It is very important that students take lectures regularly since any laxity in attendance will ultimately reflect upon student's performance. Absence on medical/ compassionate grounds may be considered on a case - to - case basis.
The University requires regular class attendance in all courses. Students are responsible for all the work missed in the class or outside it. Instructors shall establish procedures to allow students who have been absent for valid reasons to make up missed class work. If students anticipate having to miss class, it is their responsibility to inform the instructor ahead of time.
Students are required to adhere to the disciplinary norms of the College. It is important for all students to appreciate that university- level education is undoubtedly for serious individuals, interested in furthering their career prospects. As such, the University has the discretion, on recommendation from the college, to debar students permanently if they violate disciplinary norms of the College/University. All day-to-day disciplinary matters are, however, the responsibility of the College.
