Coursework Programmes : Graduation and Continuation Requirements

Graduation Requirements

A student pursuing a Master’s degree by coursework must achieve a minimum CAP of 3.0 to be eligible for graduation.


Continuation Requirements

To continue in a Master’s programme, a student may not have:

  • CAP below 3.0 (but ≥ 2.5) for three consecutive semesters; or
  • CAP below 2.5 for two consecutive semesters.

For any semester in which the student's CAP falls below 3.0 (but ≥ 2.5), that student will be issued an academic warning. If, in the following semester, the student's CAP again falls below 3.0, s/he will be placed on probation. If the student's CAP remains below 3.0 for the third consecutive semester, the student will be issued a letter of dismissal by the Registrar and denied re-admission.

For students whose CAP falls below 2.5 for two consecutive semesters, they will be placed on probation for the first semester, followed by dismissal in the second semester.
