Policy for withdrawing

If a student wants to withdraw from a trimester, he/she will write an application to the Registrar. If anyone remains absent without information, he/she will be charged for the whole trimester.

Refunding

Process of refunding for withdrawing after payment: There will be 3 categories for refunding the withdrawing students:

  1. Category one: 75% of tuition fee will be transferred to the next trimester if the student decides to withdraw from the course within 2 weeks after the registration.
  2. Category two: 50% of tuition fee will be transferred if the decision is informed within 4 weeks after the registration.
  3. Category three: 25% of the tuition fee will be transferred if the office is informed of the decision soon after the Mid-Term exams.

If a student comes with the decision after the last period of time, mentioned above, will not be transferred any money.

Withdrawal policy due to serious illness or accident

If a student is unable to complete the Trimester Final Examination due to serious illness or serious accident, he/she may apply to the Head of the concerned Department for total withdrawal from the Trimester within eight working days after the end of the Trimester Final Examination. However, he/she may choose not to withdraw any sessional course if the grade obtained in such a course is C or higher.

The Dean of the concerned Faculty will take the decision on such an application and inform the Registrar, who will make the necessary arrangements to complete the process. However, he/she may be allowed to register for backlog courses, if offered.

Organizational Framework

Classes 13 weeks
Preparatory leave before Trimester Final Exam 01 week
Duration of Examination 01 week
Trimester break 01 week
Total 16 weeks

Course Policies

Course Offering and Instructions

The courses to be offered in a particular Trimester will be announced and published in the Course Curriculum along with a tentative Trimester schedule before the end of the previous Trimester. Whether a course is to be offered in any Trimester will be decided by the Department.

Each course will be usually conducted by one teacher. The Course Teacher will be responsible for maintaining the expected standard of teaching of the course and for the assessment of the students’ performance.

Course Pattern and Structure

The Programs will consist of a set of Textual, Theoretical, Practical courses and internship/thesis.

Medium of Instruction

The original copy of the course preregistration form will have to be submitted to the Registrar’s office. The Registrar’s Office will be responsible for its distribution to relevant authorities (Departments and Controller of Examinations etc.). The course registration will be completed within the five working days at the beginning of each Trimester by paying the total fee. However, late registration will be permitted unto next five working days on payment of late registration fees. Students having dues to the University shall not be permitted to register.

  2. Each student will write a Thesis

Registration for the Second and Subsequent Trimesters

Students who pass all the courses prescribed for the Trimester and have no backlog of courses will be eligible to register for all courses prescribed for the next Trimester. Other students have to register for the backlog courses plus the courses prescribed for the next trimester, with necessary payment.

Absence

A student who has been absent for a short period, up to a maximum of three weeks due to illness, should approach the course teacher and the office of the Registrar for the make-up of In-course/ assignment(s) etc. immediately on returning to classes. Such request should be supported by a medical certificate endorsed by a registered medical doctor.

Absence during a Trimester

A student should not be absent from In-course/assignment(s) etc. during the Trimester. Such absences will naturally lead to reduction in points/marks, which count toward the final grade Absence in Trimester.

The medical certificate issued by a registered medical practitioner (with the registration number shown explicitly on the certificate) and endorsed by the Chief Medical Officer of the University will also be acceptable only in those cases where the student has valid reasons for his absence from the University.

Calculation of GPA

Grade Point Average (GPA) is the weighted average of Grade Points obtained in all the courses passed/completed by a student. For example, if a student has passed/completed five courses in a Trimester having credits of C1, C2, C3,C4 and C5, and his/her points in these courses are G1, G2, G3,G4 and G5 respectively, then,

gpa-calculation-formula GPA = C i G i C i

Calculation

Suppose a student has completed four courses in a Trimester and obtained the following grades:

Equivalence Grade Point Equivalence Description Letter Grade
80% - 100% 4.0 Outstanding A+
75% - 79% 3.75 Excellent A
70% - 74% 3.50 Very Good A-
65% - 69% 3.25 Good B+
60% - 64% 3.00 Satisfactory B
55% - 59% 2.75 Fair B-
50% - 54% 2.50 Average C+
45% - 49% 2.25 Below Average C
40% - 44% 2.00 Pass D
Below 40% 0.00 Fail F

Then his/her GPA for the Trimester will be computed as follows:

gpa-sample-calculation GPA = 3 × 3 . 75 + 3 × 4 . 00 + 3 × 3 . 75 + 3 × 3 . 75 ( 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 ) = 3 . 81
