Academic Policies

There are two semesters in an academic year. The duration of each term as follows:

Spring Term January-June
Summer Term July-December

Successful candidates in the admission test are required to complete their registration formalities before the commencement of the term. The admission office will notify them about their time and place of their registration. In addition to submission of all documents for admission, students are required to make payments of all fees at the designated bank account for their registration to be completed. A student seeking admission after due date may be permitted to register within the stipulated date by paying late registration fee./ Students are permitted to register even after due date of the admission by paying late registration fee within the stipulated date.

After admission, every student will be assigned an Advisor from the teachers of the relevant discipline to guide him/her throughout the term. The Advisor will maintain a student card containing complete academic records of the student, a duplicate of which will be supplied to the student at the end of every term.

A student can withdraw a course by a written application to the Head of the department through his/her course advisor on or before the last day of instruction. The Head of the discipline will inform it to the Chairman of the Examination Committee and the Controller of Examinations. The Controller of Examinations will send the revised registration list to the Head of the Department before the examination.

A student may retake a course with a grade of <B (less than B) if he/she thinks that improvement of the grade is necessary and possible. In case of retaking a course a student must register for the course again and will have to pay tuition fees as per rule. If a student has to repeat a course and that course is not offered any more, she/he may take an equivalent course designed by the syllabus committee. However, there must be an appalling reason for such a retake.

Students willing to change the Department/Program must write an application to his Head of the Department. The respective Head of the Department will recommend the applicant to the particular Head of the Department (i.e. that the student is intending to switch) for accepting the student. Based on the recommendation of the Head of that particular Department that she/he is intended to shift, the Registrar Office will take further initiatives. A regular student changing his/ her Department/ Program will not be required to pay admission fee anymore. However, she/he must pay the tuition fee at the rate applicable to the Department/ Program she/he intends to attend. Grades of equivalent courses can be transferred in the case of Department/ Program change.

For the students of both undergraduate and graduate programs, the minimum CGPA requirement for acceptable academic standing will be 2.00. If a student’s CGPA falls below 2.00 during any semester, she/he will be placed on academic probation. Undergraduate students, who have completed less than 60 credits, will be given maximum 3 (three) ‘Probation Notices’ in consecutive terms/semesters (once in a term/semester) to come out of the state of probation. If such students fail to raise their CGPA to the level of 2.00 or more within the given time period, they will be dismissed from the respective programme. The students whose completion of credit are 60 or above, may be given more than 3 (three) probation notices (once in a term) which would require to be placed in the meeting of the Academic Council for its approval.

In case of graduate programs, maximum 3 (three) ‘Probation Notices’ in consecutive terms (once in a term) will be given to the students to come out of the state of probation whose completion of credits are below 15. In case of failure to raise the CGPA to the level of 2.00 or above within the stipulated time period, concerned students will be dismissed from the respective program. The graduate students whose completion of credits are 15 or above/more may be given more than 3(three) Probation Notices (once in a term) which would also require to be placed in the meeting of the Academic Council for approval.
