Graduation

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS AND COURSE SUBSTITUTION

To qualify for graduation, an undergraduate student must meet all the requirements of their academic programme. In the case of a student who has withdrawn for one or more semesters and has been re-admitted, they become subject to the rules of re-admission, and consequently, to new graduation requirements if, within this period, any changes have been introduced.

If, through no fault of his/her own, a student cannot complete the requirements of a particular programme for which he/she is otherwise eligible (eg courses are discontinued, new required courses are introduced for which the student does not hold suitable prerequisites, etc.), substitutions may be made by the department and must be approved by the college. The minimum credit hour requirements should not, in any way, be affected by course substitution.

For a student to graduate, he/she must complete the required number of credits in their programme and attain a CGPA grade of C (2.00) or higher in their programme requirements.

Undergraduate students working for bachelor’s degrees are required to complete all the requirements of graduation within the maximum length of study set by the University (refer to the Length of Study section under the Undergraduate Academic Rules and Procedures).
