A student graduates after successfully completing the graduation requirements according to the degree plan, provided his cumulative GPA is not less than what is specified by the University Council for each major, and in any case is not less than "pass". Following the recommendation of the department council, the college council may determine certain additional courses the student should take to improve his cumulative GPA if he has passed the required courses, but his graduation GPA is not satisfied.
All graduation requirements must be satisfied by the end of the final semester, or the student will be required to register for an additional semester or term. Students requiring additional time to complete a degree will be required to appeal for an extension through the Dean of the College in which they are enrolled. The student must notify the Dean in writing of the necessity to extend enrollment for purposes of graduation and cite reasons for the need. (Notification will be hand delivered and sent by email).
