Following the completion of each semester, each enrolled student will have his/her academic standing in his/her course determined as - GOOD STANDING, PROBATION, OR DISMISSAL.
The academic standing of the student is determined by the cumulative grade point average (CGPA), which will only be calculated after the students have attempted at least 12 credit hours.
Types of Student Academic Standing:
GOOD STANDING: the student will be permitted to re-enrol in that course, subject to the statutes and rules of the College. Students should have a CGPA of 2.50 or above.
PROBATION: the student will be permitted to enrol in that course subject to the statutes and rules of the College and under such conditions as may be determined by the Department Head. These conditions shall be communicated to the student in writing.
This applies to students with CGPA in the range 1.00 to 2.50 provided that the current status of the student is GOOD STANDING. The student is required to improve his academic standing to GOOD STANDING within the next TWO consecutive semesters. Failing to do so will incur academic dismissal.
DISMISSAL: the student will NOT be permitted to continue in the course, since it has been determined by the Board of Examiners that the student is unlikely to complete the course satisfactorily. This applies to students of the following categories:
Semester GPA of less than 1.00;
CGPA less than 2.50 after TWO consecutive semesters of Probation Status;
where SEVEN years have elapsed since first enrolment in the course.
For any student on Probation status the Department Head shall determine a study program together with the conditions to be met, allowing for such factors as the subject content of the program, the level of study being undertaken and other relevant factors. This general means a reduced course load. (See Academic Advising.) Further, the head may permit a student on a Probation status the option of enrolling for a full course. .
A student changing course (Program Transfer) may be admitted to the new course with the status of Probation, if the head considers it appropriate.
Where a student's recommended status is course Dismissal but the board of examiners wishes to award an extra opportunity to the student, then it must amend the status to Probation. The Probation status will provide the basis for re-enrolment, subject to review of enrolment by the department head specified in part 4.
Right of Appeal: a student placed on Probation or Dismissal status shall have the right of appeal through the Office of Registrar.
