Students are expected to make satisfactory progress towards a degree, certificate or other approved program of study. To ensure that students are making progress, the University shall imposed suitable and effective provisions governing delinquent undergraduate students. Subject to the minimum standards:
Any student who, at the end of the semester, fails by twenty five percent (25%) of the total number of academic units for which he/she is enrolled shall be officially warned by the Dean, through a written notice, to improve his/her work. In the succeeding semester he/she can still carry a normal academic load.
If a student fails again by 25% of the total number of academic units enrolled after the warning, he/she shall be placed on probation.
Any student who, at the end of the semester, obtains passing grades in less than 50% of the total number of academic units for which he/she is enrolled shall be placed on probation in the succeeding semester.
A student on probation status shall be allowed to carry only a limited load of not more than seventy five percent (75%) of the regular load for the semester.
Dismissal from the College/Academic Unit
Any student on probation who fails more than 50% of the total numberunits in which he/she is enrolled shall be dropped from the rolls of the College/Academic Unit.
- Any student who obtains three (3) failures in two (2) consecutive semesters shall be dropped from the rolls of the College/Academic Unit.
- Any student who, at the end of the semester, fails more than 75% of the total number of academic units enrolled shall be dropped from the rolls of the College/Academic Unit.
- Any student dropped from one College/Academic Unit shall not ordinarily be considered for admission to another unit of the University unless, in the opinion of the Guidance Counselor, his/her natural aptitude and interest may qualify him/her in another field ofIn which case he/she may be allowed to enroll in the proper College/Academic Unit or Department.
Any student shall be permanently barred from re-enrolment in any college/academic unit of the University on the following bases:
- Any student who, at the end of the semester or term, obtains failure in 100 percent of the academic units in which he/she enrolled.
- Any student who was dropped in accordance with Item (iv) above of the rules on dismissal and again fails which make it necessary to drop him again, shall be not eligible for readmission.
- Dismissal due to violation of the rules and regulations of the University.
Permanent disqualification shall not apply to cases in which failing grades of the student were due to his/her unauthorized dropping of the courses and not to poor scholarship, as certified by the Department Head concerned. However, if the unauthorized withdrawal takes place after the mid-term examinations and the mid-term grades obtained by the student were poor, the grade of 5.0 (failure) will be credited against him/her for the purpose of this scholarship rule. The Dean shall deal with these cases on their individual merits provided that in no case of readmission to the same or another college/academic unit shall the action be lighter than probation.
A grade of Incomplete 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.
No readmission of dismissed student or disqualified students shall be considered by the College Deans without the favorable recommendation of the Director of the Office of Student Services. Cases in which the action of the College Dean conflicts with the recommendation of the Director of the Office of the Student Services may be elevated to the VP for Academic Affairs for his/her final decision.
A student who drops at least one (1) course for three (3) consecutive terms shall be advised to transfer.
Enrollment of Failed Courses
Required courses in which a student has failed shall take precedence over other courses in his succeeding enrollment.
