10. Course Registration

Any student who uses classroom or laboratory facilities or faculty time is required to register formally. Upon admission to the university each student is assigned to a student adviser with whose consent and advice the student can register for courses he intends to take during a given term.

10.1 Registration Procedure
Students must register for each course in which they will participate. At the commencement of each term, each student has to fill up a course registration form in consultation with and under the guidance of his/her advisor. The date, time and venue of registration are announced in advance by the Registrar’s Office. Much counseling and advising are accomplished at this time. It is absolutely essential that all the students be present for registration at the specified time. Late registration is, however, permitted during the first week on payment of a late registration fee.

10.2 Limits on the Credit Hours to be taken
A student must be enrolled for at least 15 credit hours. He may be allowed to enroll in up to a maximum of 24 credit hours if recommended by his/her Adviser. A student must enroll for the sessional/ laboratory courses prescribed in a particular term within the allowable credit hour limits.
In special cases where a student cannot be allotted the minimum required 15 credit hours in a Term, the relevant BUGS may approve a lesser number of credit hours to suit individual requirements. Such cases shall only be applicable to students requiring less than 15 credit hours for graduation.

10.3 Pre-conditions for Registration
A student is allowed to register in a particular course subject to the class capacity constraints and satisfaction of pre-requisite courses. If a student fails in a pre-requisite course in any term, the concerned BUGS may allow him/her to register for a course which depends upon the pre-requisite course provided that his/her attendance and performance in the continuous assessment in the said pre-requisite course is found to be satisfactory.
Registration will be done at the beginning of each term. The Registration program with dates and venue will be announced in advance. Late registration is, however, permitted during the first week on payment of a late registration fee. Students having outstanding dues to university or a hall of residence shall not be permitted to register. All students have, therefore, to clear their dues and get a clearance or no dues certificate, on the production of which, they will be given necessary Course Registration Forms and complete the course registration procedure. Registration Forms will normally be available in the Register’s Office. However, for the First Year students, prior department-wise enrolment/admission is mandatory. An orientation program will be conducted for them at the beginning of the first term when they will be handed over the registration package on producing enrollment slip/proof of admission.

10.4 Pre-registration
Pre-registration for courses to be offered by the students in a particular term will be done on a specified dates before the end of the previous term. All students in consultation with their course adviser are required to complete the pre-registration formalities, failing which a fine of Tk. xxx.xx (amount may be decided by the authority) will have to be paid before registration in the next term. Further a student who does not pre-register may not get the courses desired by him subsequently.

10.5 Registration Deadline
Student must register for the courses to be taken before the commencement of each term and no late registration will be accepted after one week of classes. Late registration after this date will not be accepted unless the student submits a written appeal to the Registrar through the concerned Head and can document extenuating circumstances such as medical problems (physically incapacitated and not able to be presented) from the Chief Medical Officer of the university or some other academic commitments which precluded enrolling prior to the last date of registration.

10.6 Penalty for Late Registration
Students who fail to register during the designated dates for registration are charged a late registration fee of Tk. xxx.xx (amount may be decided by the authority, currently the amount is Tk. 500.00 (Five hundred only)). This extra fee will not be waived whatever be the reason for late registration.

10.7 Course Adjustment Procedure
A student will have some limited options to add or delete courses from his/her registration list, within the first two weeks from the beginning of the term. He/She may add courses only within the first two weeks of a regular Term and only the first week of Short Term. Incase of dropping a course a student will be allowed to do so within four weeks after the commencement of a regular Term and two weeks after commencement of a short Term. Adjustment of initially registered courses in any term can be done by duly completing the Course Adjustment Form. These forms will normally be available in the Registrar’s Office. For freshman students such forms can be included in the registration packet at the time of orientation.
Any student willing to add or drop courses will have to fill up a Course Adjustment Form in consultation with and under the guidance of his adviser. The original copy of the Course Adjustment Form will be submitted to the Registrar’s Office, and then the requisite number of photo copies will be made by the Registrar’s Office for distribution to the concerned adviser, Head, Dean, Controller of Examination and the student.
All changes in course must be approved by the Adviser and the Head of the department concerned. The Course Adjustment Form will have to be submitted to the Registrar’s Office after duly filled in and signed by the concerned persons. To add/drop a course respective teacher’s consent will be required.

10.8 Withdrawal from a Term
If a student is unable to complete the Term Final Examination due to serious illness or serious accident, he/she may apply to the Head of the degree awarding department for total withdrawal from the Term within a week after the end of the Term Final Examination. However, he/she may choose not to withdraw any laboratory/ sessional/ design course if the grade obtained in such a course is ‘D’ or better. The application must be supported by a medical certificate from the Chief Medical Officer of the University. The Academic Council will take the final decision about such application.
