Business Rules

Business Rules:
When a professor enters a grade of the students, the values must be 1.0, 1.25, 1.50, 1.75, 2.0, 2.25, 2.50, 2.75, 3.0, 3.50 (either fail or failure due to absences), EXP (exempted), CRD (credited), INC (incomplete) or WP (withdrawal with permission).

If there is a change of grade by the professor, the same constraints must be taken into consideration, as well as in the case of an appeal by the student to be approved by the professor and director.

Midterm marks are determined by + as passing, - as failing and 0 as unknown.

GWA (general weighted average) must be in the form #.## and is cumulative = unit*grade/total number of units

DL (Dean’s List) = 1.00 to 1.50 GWA

Honor Students shall have a GWA between 1.00 and 1.50 and shall NOT have failed any subject.

Minimum number of units per semester is 14 and the maximum is 28.

RETENTION POLICY
To be retained in the University:

1. Freshmen should attain a weighted average (WA) of 2.75 or better for all subjects taken during the 1st year.
2. Sophomores should attain a WA of 2.50 or better for all subjects taken during the 2nd year, including required subjects taken for the first time during the summer of the previous academic year.
3. Juniors are separated from the University if they incur grades below 3.0 in 30% or more of the total academic units they enrolled in during 3rd year, including required subjects taken for the first time during the summer of the previous academic year.
Please note: The units for subjects in which an Incomplete (INC) grade is received are included in the total units enrolled (denominator) but not in the total units failed (numerator).
4. Seniors who intend to go to the 5th year must attain a weighted average of at least 2.00 for all their 4th year subjects, unless the program they are enrolled in requires a higher WA. Please make sure you know the required WA of the program you chose.
5. Seniors who do not intend to go to the 5th year need only to pass their subjects in the 4th year in order to graduate.
6. Seniors in the 5th year of their masteral program need only to pass their subjects in order to graduate.

Subjects Included in the Weighted Average (WA) for Retention
a. Only academic subjects are included in the computation of the WA.
b. PE, IPD, NSTP, and APEC Foreign Language courses are not included in the computation.
c. Previously failed subjects (remedial subjects) re-taken during summer are not included in the computation.
d. Previously failed subjects (remedial subjects) re-taken during the first or second semester are included in the computation.
e. Required subjects (non-remedial subjects) taken for the first time during the summer will be included in the computation of the WA for the succeeding year.
f. A passing grade for a subject which you have previously failed within the year (or during the previous summer, as in e.) does not replace your previous failing mark (3.50). Both marks are included in the computation of the WA.
