Credits and GPA

Every academic program has a credit and course count requirement which must be completed by a student in order to be eligible for graduation from the institution. Certain courses may be non-credit i.e. their associated GPA is not included in the CGPA calculation which is a weighted average of the obtained credits.

Formula:
CGPA = sum of (course credit hours X GPA for obtained credits) / sum of credit hours

Students may request for making one or more courses as non-credit. The procedure is to submit an application either on paper or via email to the examination office. Grades and Marks will be shown on the transcript.

A course cannot be declared as non-credit after issuance of Official Transcript (type 3 above)
