Incomplete Grade:

        A semester grade of incomplete, “I, is given only on grounds of unavoidable circumstances beyond the student’s control and upon the recommendation of the teacher concerned.  If the incomplete grade is not removed within the next semester, it becomes an “F”.  A course taken previously in which an “Incomplete” still exists is counted as part of the class load.

Grade-point Average:

        The student’s grade- point average (GPA) is computed by dividing the total number of honour points earned by the total number of hours attempted. Hours for which an “F” or “WF or “I” is received, are included in computing the grade-point average, but the symbols “Au”, “W” or “Wp” are not included in the computation of the grade-point average.
        For graduation a student must present a GPA of 2.25 in his/her major and minor fields. Semester grades are recorded in the student’s permanent record.

Repeated Courses:

        In attempting to improve GPA, a student must first take courses not already completed or those in which a grade of “D” or below has been obtained. Under no circumstance may a course in which a student has obtained a “C” grade be repeated more than once.
        The permanent record of each student includes all courses completed or attempted. All transcripts are issued on this basis.

Academic Loads

The number of units, which a student is allowed to carry, should be based upon his scholastic achievement as follows:

GPA                     Class-load

3.50 and above          19 units
3.00 to 3.49            18 units
2:25 to 2.99            15-17 units
2.00 to 2.24            14 units
1.50 to 1.99            12 units
1.00 to 1.49            10 units

(Grade Point Average is calculated from the previous semester or ninth week test).

Comprehensive Examination:

        Each candidate for a degree must successfully pass a series of written and oral comprehensive examinations covering his/her major and minor fields and general knowledge. This examination will be given to all candidates for graduation during the candidate’s last semester of study. Candidate will be recommended for comprehensive examinations only if they have the minimum grade-point average required in the major, minor and over all by the semester ending previous to the writing of the comprehensive examination, and if they are registered to complete all unfinished requirements by the end of the semester in
which  the examination are to be attempted.

Graduation Requirement for a Degree:

1. A completion of all the requires subjects for the degree
2. A minimum of 128 hours of credit
3. A cumulative GPA of 2.25
4. Successful completion of comprehensive examination.
5. Settlement of account.

Course Numbering:

        College courses of instruction are classified as first year, second year, third year, and fourth year courses and are given numbers to indicate this classification.
        Courses numbered 100 – 199 are first year courses of the college, those numbered 200 – 299 are second year courses, courses numbered 300 – 399 are third year courses, and courses numbered 400 – 499 are fourth year courses.
        Odd numbers (215, 217) usually imply first semester courses and even numbers (216 , 328), second semester courses. Hyphenated courses ( 214- 246) indicate an integrated sequence to be taken consecutively and completely before credit can be applied toward graduation. Course numbers separated by a comma (381, 382) indicate that each semester’s work may be taken independently of the other and credit received for the work of a single semester.  Courses separated by semi-colons ( 451; 452) indicate that the first semester is pre-requisite to the second, however, the first semester taken alone carries credit toward
