6. Assessment of the Student's Academic Progress
6.1 Assessment Criteria
The assessment of the student's academic progress in each course is based on the student's class participation, class activity, completion of the course assignments, and the results of the mid-term and final exams. The professor of each course is the student's assessor in that course.
Holding the final exam is mandatory for each course.
The criterion for the student's academic progress is the score obtained for that course. The student's score in each course is determined numerically on a 0 to 20 scale.
The minimum passing score for each course is 10. If the student fails in each of the obligatory courses, he/she is required to pass the course anew in the earliest time possible. Yet, the scores for all courses including the failed courses will be recorded in the student's transcript and will be considered for the calculation of average.
6.2 GPA (Grade Point Average)
At the end of each semester, the student's GPA will be calculated and recorded in his/her transcript. Also, at the end of the program, the student's cumulative GPA will be calculated and recorded in his/her transcript.
To calculate GPA, the number of credits for each course is multiplied by the score of that course. Then the resultant numbers for all courses including failed courses will be totaled, and the result will be divided by the total number of credits attempted.
6.3 Conditional Registration
The student's GPA in each semester should not be less than 12. Otherwise, the student's registration in the next semester will be conditional.
6.4 Expulsion of the Conditional Student
For non-continuous bachelor and master programs, if the student's GPA is less than 12 in two consecutive or four non-consecutive semesters, he/she will be deprived from continuing his/her study. For non-continuous associate and bachelor programs, if the student's GPA is less than 12 in two consecutive or non-consecutive semesters, he/she will be deprived from continuing his/her study.
The student who has passed successfully all the course credits of a program, is called a graduate of that program.
The graduation date is the day in which the student's last score is submitted to the education office of the faculty or university.
