There shall be a regular period for removing grades of ‘4’ and ‘INC.’ before the start of each semester.
Examinations for the removal of grades of ‘INC.’ or ‘4’ may be taken without fee: (1) during the regular examination period, if the subject is included in the schedule of examinations, and (2) during the removal examination period, viz., the period covering ten days preceding the registration in each semester during which period provided that the examination is taken at the time that it is scheduled.
Removal examinations may be taken at other times on the recommendation of the Dean and upon payment of a required fee per subject. Students not in residence shall pay the registration fee on top of the examination fee (where required) in order to be entitled to take the removal examination.
A grade of ‘4’ or ‘INC.’ may no longer be improved after the end of the third regular removal period immediately following the semester/term in which the grade was incurred. EXAMPLE:
|Semester/term in which 4 or INC was incurred||Deadline for Removal|
|1st semester 2008-2009||Regular removal period immediately preceding the 2nd semester 2009-2010|
|2nd semester 2008-2009||Regular removal period immediately preceding the 1st semester 2010-2011|
A grade of ‘4’ received after removing a grade of ‘INC.’, however, must be removed within the remaining portion of the prescribed period for the removal of the original grade of ‘INC.’
