For the purpose of determining the scholastic status of the students, a grade of INC is not included in the computation of weighted average grade for each semester or summer. When it is replaced by a final grade, the latter will be included in the grades during the semester when the removal is made. The grade of ‘4’ is counted until it is removed. Once removed, only the final grade of ‘3’ or ‘5’ is counted.
The faculty of each college or school shall approve suitable and effective provisions governing undergraduate delinquent students, subject to the following minimum standards:
Any student who, at the end of the semester, obtains final grades below 3 in 25 percent to 49 percent of the total number of academic units for which he is registered will receive a warning from the Dean to improve his work.
Any student who, at the end of the semester, obtains final grades below 3 in 50 percent to 75 percent of the total number of academic units in which he has final grades shall be placed on probation for the succeeding semester and his load shall be limited to the extent to be determined by the Dean.
Probation may be removed by passing with grades of 3 or better in more than 50 percent of the units in which he has final grades in the succeeding semester.
- Any student who, at the end of the semester, obtains final grades below 3 in more than 75 percent but less than 100 percent of the total number of academic units in which he receives final grades shall be dropped from the rolls of the college. Grades of INC incurred because of failure to complete the course requirement due to illness or similar valid reasons shall not be counted against the student; provided, that the documents establishing veracity of the cause for failure to complete such requirements are submitted to the College Secretary before the start of the regular registration of the following semester excluding summer.
- Any student on probation who again fails in 50 percent or more of the total number of units in which he receives final grades shall be dropped from the rolls of the college, subject to the provisions of the following article.
- Any student dropped from one college shall not ordinarily be admitted to another unit of the University unless, in the opinion of the Dean of Students, his natural aptitude and interest may qualify him in another field of study in which case he may be allowed to enroll in the proper college or department.
- Any student who, at the end of the semester, obtains final grades below ‘3’ in 100 percent of the academic units in which he is given final grades shall be permanently barred from readmission to any college or school of the University.
- Any student who was dropped in accordance with the last item of the rules on Dismissal and again fails which make it necessary to drop him again, shall be not eligible for readmission to any college of the University.
- Permanent disqualification does not apply to cases where, on recommendations of the instructors concerned, the faculty certifies that the grades of ‘5’ were due to the student's unauthorized dropping of the subjects and not to poor scholarship. However, if the unauthorized withdrawal takes place after the mid-semester and the student's class standing is poor, his grades of ‘5’ shall be counted against him for the purpose of this scholarship rule. The Dean shall deal with these cases on their individual merits in the light of the recommendations of the Vice Chancellor for Instruction; provided, that, in no case of readmission to the same or another college, shall the action be lighter than probation.
