Grading System

The  student’s  grade  is  computed using a variety of assessment tools/rubrics to evaluate academic performance, e.g., written and oral tests, recitations, term papers, book reports, and other performance tasks and activities. The grading system is usually included in the course syllabus.

1. The student’s grade in any subject/course is based not only on the formal examinations but in every kind of evidence upon which the faculty member can depend in coming to a decision: recitation, term papers, book report, written and oral tests or quizzes, and other projects.

2. Letter grades and the Quality Point Average (QPA) are used to gauge a student’s progress. Unless otherwise stipulated by the teacher at the beginning of the semester, the following system will be used:

GRADE

3. Other Grading Marks: 

a. D minus (D -) may be given for mid-terms only at the teacher’s discretion as warning. As a final grade, it is converted to a grade the student deserves.

b. INC. (Incomplete) may not be given as a final grade.  A student who misses the scheduled final examination must report for a special final examination within two weeks after the missed examination.  If no special examination is taken, the teacher shall grade the student on the basis of her performance for the entire semester.

c. Dropped:    

• Withdrawal from a subject within two (2) weeks after opening of classes:

– Dropped subject is not encoded in the student’s academic record;

– No permission is needed from the Academic Dean

– Tuition is REFUNDABLE – 90% if dropping within the first week and 80% within the second week.

• Withdrawal from a subject or subjects beyond two weeks after opening of classes when applied for during the period beyond two weeks after mid-terms or immediately prior to final examination week:

– Permission/approval is required from the professor and Academic Dean.

– Dropped subject is encoded in the student’s academic records as “W”.

– TUITION IS NOT REFUNDABLE.

d. Withdrawal from SSC: Withdrawal from all subjects or from a course enrolled in during the semester requires signature of all professors and approval of the Academic Dean.

• When applied for up to two (2) weeks after registration or opening of classes, tuition is REFUNDABLE – 90% within the first week and 80% within the second week; withdrawal is not encoded in the student’s academic record

• Withdrawal applied for beyond the specified two (2) weeks, TUITION IS NOT REFUNDABLE. Withdrawal is encoded as “W’ in the student’s academic record.

e. FA: Failure due to EXCESSIVE ABSENCES – Quality Point is zero (QP = 0)

A student who exceeds the limited number of absences automatically earns an FA grade for that subject. S/He may no longer drop/withdraw from the course after the FA is earned.  The excess absence incurred will be judged by the faculty on the student’s reason for the absence in the determination of the FA grade.

4. QUALITY POINTS earned by the student in the subjects enrolled are computed as follows:

            (1st Semester)                                                  22 = 3.19
                                                                                  

      Total Quality Point Ave.                =                          59.6 = 2.84

            (2nd Semester)                                                     21

      Cumulative Quality Point               =                          70.1 + 59.6 = 3.02

                                                                                 22 + 21

      Average (CQPA) as of 2nd semester of Year I = 3.02

5. CHANGE OF GRADE is requested by faculty members in writing, with the corresponding proof of error in computation or valid reason for such a change.  The Academic Council through the Change of Grade Committee recommends approval or disapproval of the change of grade request.
