Article 73: Academic Status Determination of students 73.1. General Provisions

73.1.1.At the end of each semester, each faculty/department pursuant to procedures fixed by its academic commission should determine the academic status of each student and will examine the case of each student who fails to achieve the required academic standard.

73.1.2.Students are required to achieve a certain level of score to be promoted to the next semester. This achievement is measured by (1) Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA), and (2) Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA). SGPA is calculated by considering only the modules/courses for which the student is registered for the semester. CGPA is calculated by considering all the modules/courses the student accumulated so far. The GPAs are obtained by dividing the sum of all grade points for the modules/courses divided by the total sum of ECTS/credits. For example Course A has 5 ECTS and the student scored C+. The same student is also registered for Course B which has 7 ECTS and the student scored A-. Therefore GPA = (5*2.5)+(7*3.75)/(5+7)=3.23

73.1.3.All courses for which the student has registered in the semester, considering add/drop, are used for determining the SGPA.

73.1.4.At the end of each semester, the academic unit will examine the status of all students, using both SGPA and CGPA, who are registered for the particular semester.

73.1.5.One semester in the regular program is equivalent to two semesters in the evening program. The academic status of evening student is, therefore, determined every other semester.

73.1.6.For Kiremt programs, the academic status of the students shall be determined for a minimum of 25 ECTS points/15 credit hours.

73.1.7.Grade report should be issued to applicants for semesters to which the status is determined by the SC/DC.

73.1.8.The academic status of part-time students is determined for a minimum of 25 ECTS points/15 credit hours, starting from the first admission date of the students.

73.1.9.The student is subject to the status of “Dismissal for Good” under the following conditions:

73.1.9.1.Two consecutive warnings, or

73.1.9.2.Any student who scored three ‘’F’s’’ on courses with more than 12 total CP or a student who scored more than three ’’F’s” per semester, or

73

73.1.9.3.The SGPA is less than 1.00 at any semester, even if the student has scored one or more Fx grade (s), or

73.1.9.4.The CGPA is less than 1.75 at any semester; however, the SGPA and Fx grade has to be checked.

73.1.9.5.If a readmitted student after dismissal cannot achieve promoted status.
