- Every student’s GPA is calculated at the end of every semester. It is the sum total of the grades obtained in the courses studied in a semester after multiplying each grade by the result of dividing the number of the course credit hours by the credit hours the student finished in the semester.
- AGPA is calculated in the same way as GPA, taking into consideration all of the courses the student has taken since the outset of his/her study at YPU.
- A student could withdraw from a course during the academic semester. At this case, he/she is given an evaluation of W (Withdrawal). The deadline for withdrawals is set within the academic calendar issued at the outset of the academic year. The course in which a student gets a W is not considered in his her GPA.
- A student could apply for withdrawal from all of his/her registered courses in a semester, and accordingly considered to have withdrawn from that semester, if approved by his Faculty Dean. Withdrawal must be done within the time frame set in the academic calendar.
- A student who is not able to meet a course requirements for reasons beyond his/her control, is given an evaluation of I (Incomplete). To alter this evaluation prior to the sixth week of the next academic semester, he/she is expected to do extra work. In case of failing to meet this requirement or meeting this deadline, a student is given an evaluation of Z in this course.
- A student who failed a course is given an evaluation of F.
- A student with an evaluation of F (Fail) or Z (barred) in any course must re-register for that course and study it again. Fees for that course must be paid as well.
- A student must repeat any course he/she failed provided that this course is compulsory in his degree plan. However, upon failing an elective, a student is allowed to study another course from amongst the degree plan course offerings.
- To improve GPA and erase academic warnings off of his/her academic record, a student could re-take any course in which he/she scored below 60%.
