At the beginning of each semester, you must see the academic advisor and register for the courses to take.
You should complete registration during weeks 1,2 of Fall/Spring, and week 1 of Summer, as indicated in the academic calendar.
Each course is assigned a number of credit hours (CH), between 1 and 6, depending on the course’s learning effort.
Your course load is the total registered CH. Its limits depend on your overall performance (CGPA).
|CGPA >= 3.33
2 consecutive semesters
|1.7 <= CGPA < 3.33||12||19||6|
|CGPA < 1.7||12||13||6|
You may make changes to your registration within time limits indicated in the academic calendar.
Addition of courses is allowed up to week 2 of the semester.
Drop of courses is allowed up to week 3 of Fall/Spring, and to week 2 of Summer.
Withdrawal from a course is allowed up to week 9 of Fall/Spring. The course grade will be “W”.
You should attend at least 75% of the contact time of each course, about 10 lectures/tutorials in Fall/Spring.
If your attendance in a course is less than 75%, you will not be allowed to sit for the final exam of that course, and your grade will be WF.
A student who is absent of the final exam of a course will have a grade FA (Fail Absent).
However, if absence is for an acceptable reason, the grade will be I (Incomplete), to have a makeup exam during weeks 1,2 of the next semester.
The grade in a course is based on some or all of several grading components:
class work (quizzez, reports, participation, …), lab work, midterm exam, final lab exam, final oral exam, and final written exam.
Each component carries a specific portion of the course’s mark.of 100.
The total mark you obtain determines your grade in the course. Each grade gives a grade point per CH.
|Total Mark %||Grade||Grade
|90 –||90 –||A||4.00|
|85 –||85 –||A-||3.70|
|80 –||80 –||B+||3.30|
|75 –||75 –||B||3.00|
|70 –||72.5 –||B-||2.70|
|65 –||70 –||C+||2.30|
|60 –||67.5 –||C||2.00|
|55 –||65 –||C-||1.70|
|52.5 –||62.5 –||D+||1.30|
|50 –||60 -(*)||D||1.00|
|< 50||< 60 (**)||F||0.00|
Pharmacy Supplementary Courses: (*) 50 – (**) < 50 In each course, you earn a number of points.
|earned points = Grade Point * course CH
If you repeat a failed course, the new grade will be at most C, and will replace the failing grade.
If you repeat a passed course, the new grade will be what you obtain, and will replace the previous grade.
Grade Point Average (GPA)
GPA is a measure of your performance in all courses taken in a semester.
GPA = sum of earned points in all courses / sum of CH of all course
(in one semester)
Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)
CGPA is a measure of your performance in all courses taken in all semesters up to the present semester.
CGPA = total earned points / total CH
(of all semesters)
The minimum CGPA to graduate is 2.00.
A graduate with CGPA >= 3.75 is granted a first honors degree.
A graduate with 3.25 <= CGPA < 3.75 is granted a second honors degree.
> If you obtain semester GPA < 1.7 you will receive a letter of Academic Warning.
> If you obtain CGPA < 1.7 you will be placed on Academic Probation.
> If you are placed on Academic Probation for 3 consecutive semesters, you will be subject to Suspension/Dismissal.
