A graduate student who gets a grade lower than 2.0 may continue the program provided that the GPA is 2.0 or better for the Master’s, and 1.75 or better for the doctoral level.
Other symbols in use but not included in the computation of the Grade Point Average (GPA) are:
D – Dropped. A student may be officially Dropped or withdrawn from the course before the midterm examination.
INC – Incomplete. It means that the student has completed the major portion of the course work in a satisfactory manner but for reason/s judged by the professor to be legitimate, a portion of the course requirements remains to be completed. Completion of the requirements shall be made within one year. Failure to do so shall mean the automatic conversion of the INC to Failed. The registrar is responsible in the automatic conversion of the INC into failed in coordination with the dean. Students with INC shall be invited per term to report to the Registrar a month after the last day for the submission of final grades.
The collected P150 fee for completion is equitably distributed as follows:
Professor – 75%
Dean – 10 %
Curriculum Adviser, Registrar &
General Fund for the University – 5% each
AC- Accredited. This mark shall be used for the word “Accredited” from other institutions.
EN- Enrolled. This mark shall be indicated for academic subjects in which students are currently enrolled/on-going for certification purposes.
IP – In Progress. This indicates that the student has shown satisfactory progress in series or sequence of thesis/dissertation requirements where the grade is not given until the sequence of courses is completed until such time that the final grade is recorded. When a final grade is recorded, the mark of IP shall not appear in the Transcript of Records provided it is within the time limit of the graduate program.
S or U – Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory. It is the grade used to record satisfactory or unsatisfactory progress or completion of work. S shall be counted as credit hours only. This is the grade to be used in seminars and special problems.
A student admitted on a regular status in the master’s or doctoral level shall maintain a GPA of 2.0 or 1.75 or better respectively. Failure to meet the GPA requirement shall warrant a written warning.
A graduate student admitted on a probationary status shall achieve a GPA of 1.75 and 1.50 or better, respectively, to qualify as a regular student in the succeeding semester following probation.
Students with GPA of 1.24 or better will be given Certificates of Recognition for Academic Excellence.
