17. Performance Evaluation

The performance of a student will be evaluated in terms of two indices, viz. Term Grade Point Average and Cumulative Grade Point Average which is the grade average for all the terms completed. The Term Grade Point Average is computed by dividing the total grade points earned in a term by the number of term hours taken in that term. The overall or Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is computed by dividing the total grade points accumulated up to date by the total credit hours earned. Thus a student who has earned 375 grade points in attempting 100 credit hours of courses would have a CGPA of 3.75.

Students will be considered to be making normal progress toward a degree if their Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) for all work attempted is 2.20 or higher. Students who regularly maintain a term GPA of 2.20 or better are making good progress toward the degrees and are in good standing with the University. Students who fail to maintain this minimum rate of progress will not be in good standing. This can happen when any one of the following conditions exists.

  1. The Term GPA falls below 2.20, or
  2. The Cumulative GPA falls below 2.20, or
  3. The earned number of credits falls below 15 times the number of terms attended.

All such students can make up their deficiencies in GPA and credit requirements by completing courses in the subsequent term(s) and backlog courses, if there are any, with better grades. When the minimum GPA and credit requirements are achieved the student is again returned to good standing.
