    Grade Requirement for Degree

    To earn an Undergraduate Degree from RPSU, a student must complete his degree requirements with a minimum CGPA of 2.50. The grading policies are,

    Numerical Grade Letter Grade Grade Point Remarks
    80% and above A+ 4.00 Outstanding
    75% to less than 80% A 3.75 Excellent
    70% to less than 75% A- 3.50 Very Good
    65% to less than 70% B+ 3.25 Good
    60% to less than 65% B 3.00 Satisfactory
    55% to less than 60% B- 2.75 Above Average
    50% to less than 55% C+ 2.50 Average
    45% to less than 50% C 2.25 Below Average
    40% to less than 45% D 2.00 Pass
    Less than 40% F 0.00 Fail

    Class Attendance

    A student is expected to attend reasonable portion (not less than 80%) of the lectures, tutorials and practical classes for the respective course. It is the responsibility of the instructor to inform the student of the consequences of absence from class. It is the responsibility of the student to keep instructors informed regarding absences from classes. A student who knows of necessary class absences should consult instructors in advance. A student who misses a class is not excused from obligations to instructors. Instructors will determine the manner in which assignments and examinations missed may be made up. A student may be dropped from a course for absence in five consecutive classes.

    Probation and Dismissal

    A student whose CGPA falls below 2.50 after the first two semesters will be placed on probation for the next two semesters. Failure to raise their CGPA to at least 2.50 after the probation period will lead to dismissal from the university. If a student’s CGPA falls below 2.50 subsequently, s/he will again be placed on probation. Students who fail to achieve a GPA of 2.50 within three semesters will be dismissed from the university. A student dismissed on academic ground(s) may be allowed to be admitted in another program with permission of the university authority.


    Discontinuance of studies results either in the issuance of transfer of credentials (honorable dismissal) issued by the Registrar's Office for responsible cause or upon petition of the student or an order of dismissal by the university after the commission of a major offense specified in the code of conduct for students. Should a student wish to leave the university temporarily, he must first secure permission from the office stating the definite period and reason for the leave. A student must obtain approval on the Leave of Absence form, which can be secured from the Registrar's Office; otherwise, the period of his/her absence shall be counted against him/her for purpose of the time limit or maximum residency. Prior permission is required from the Registrar’s Office for discontinuation of studies for any specific reason. The Leave of Absence Form must be filled out stating the specific reason. Otherwise, the period of absence shall be counted against the student and an absence of consecutive semesters without prior approval will account to cancellation of studentship from RPSU.

    A student who seeks to add or drop courses should consult his/her advisors and instructors of relevant courses. S/he may add/drop courses only within the date mentioned in the Academic Calendar and only with the approval of their academic advisors.
