The following are the grading periods for the 1st and 2nd semesters: Preliminary, Mid-term, Pre-Final and Final; for Summer: Mid-term and Final.
Bases for grading are as follows:
- Quizzes, reports, assignments, class participation, themes, practicum, etc. (2/3)
- Examinations (1/3)
- The grading system is a combination of cumulative and averaging.
- The numerical system is used in the undergraduate level. The following grade equivalents are adopted:
5.0 Below 75 (Failed)
Dr. Students who officially dropped
FA failure due to excessive absences
- Incomplete grades are of two kinds: those resulting from failure to take the final examination and those resulting from a failure to accomplish certain requirements such as term papers, exercises, projects, etc. In all cases, a grade of “INC” is counted as a deficiency and disqualifies a student from honors, awards, or scholarship of any kind, or from serving as a major officer of any organization (President to Treasurer).
- A student who gets a grade of “INC” is given one semester to complete his/her grade. An incomplete grade if not removed within two consecutive semesters automatically becomes 5.0 (failure). The student will have to repeat the subject except for valid and justifiable reasons as determined by the College Dean and approved by the Vice Chancellor for Academics.
- Preliminary, Mid-term and Pre-Final grades may be known through the individual instructors two (2) weeks after the examinations. It is the responsibility of the individual student to inform his parents or guardians about his grades. In this connection, parents or guardians are urged to inquire about the progress of their students.
- All the grades from Prelim to Finals are to be sent via short messaging services (SMS) or can be viewed at the website. Parents are encouraged to submit their cellular phone number at the office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic & Student Services.
- Correction of Grades
In correcting a grade of student, the student and the subject teacher will make an appeal to the committee. The committee then will decide as to correct/change the grade of student or not. The teacher can only change the final grade of the student if she/he was found to commit errors in the computation. The members of the committee are College Dean, Subject Coordinator/Program Heads of the faculty making an appeal and Vice Chancellor for Academics.
