Increments of 0.25 in the grading system took effect in SY 1998-1999.
Percentage equivalents for a particular number may vary from department to department, or may not be relevant at all because of the subject matter.
The minimum passing mark in CAS, EM and BSIT is 3.00. For prerequisite subjects, a mark of 3.00 implies that you are ready for the next subject level. A mark of 3.50 means failure to reach the required competence level in the subject. If a subject is a required subject (not an elective) for the student’s chosen program of study, the student who fails it has to re-take and pass it. Students who fail an elective subject may either take it again and pass it or choose another elective subject to complete the required number of units.
Take note that the minimum passing mark in the graduate school programs for 4th year (except for the BSIT Program) and for all 5th year programs is 2.50. The failing mark in the graduate school programs for 4th year (except for the BSIT Program) and 5th year is 3.00.
The transcript of records contains marks in the number mode only, and, whenever applicable, the abbreviations WP, INC, P (a pass for non-academic subjects) and AUD, as indicated in the grading system.
An incomplete (INC) means that your class standing is passing but you have failed to submit an important requirement for justifiable reasons. You are given one semester to complete your lacking requirement for CAS subjects and one year for subjects in the graduate levels (4th and 5th years). To complete a requirement you must:
1. Get a request slip for the completion form at the Registrar’s Office.
2. Have the slip signed by your teacher.
3. Pay Php 50.00 at the Accounting Office.
4. Present the official receipt and signed slip at the Registrar‘s Office to claim the completion form.
5. Have the completion form signed by your teacher, who will take care of forwarding it to the Registrar’s Office.
For CAS subjects: Failure to submit the lacking requirement within ONE SEMESTER automatically converts an Incomplete (INC) grade into a failing grade.
For graduate levels (4th and 5th years): Failure to submit the lacking requirement within
ONE YEAR automatically converts an Incomplete (INC) grade into a failing mark.
A withdrawal with permission (WP) means that you have decided not to continue taking the subject within the time specified in the school calendar and after having filed the approved required forms with the Registrar’s Office. If you stop attending classes without filing the approved forms, you will be given a failing mark due to absences at the end of the semester.
Audit (AUD) means that you have enrolled for a class with the understanding that you will not be given any academic credits.
Credited (CRD) means that a subject you have taken at another educational institution is accredited by the University, and you will, therefore, be given academic credits for the subject.
If you never attended a class you officially enrolled in, you will be given a failing mark due to academic deficiency caused by your absences. This failure due to absence (FDA) will be reflected in the transcript of records as a failing mark (3.50 for CAS subjects and 3.00 for graduate level subjects).
