Dear Students,
 
Please note the important message below so you are all aware of the implications of the exclusion provision embedded in the academic regulations.
 
1. EXCLUSION FROM STUDIES UNDER THE ACADEMIC PROGRESS REGULATIONS
In recent years students who attained a gpa between 1.5 and 2.0. had been placed on probation and were required to attain a GPA of 2.0 in order to get out of the probationary status. This is in line with Academic Progress Regulations provision 5.3 (a) (pg 461 of 2018 h&c)
 
From 2019 the following exclusion provisions of the same regulations will also be fully implemented
 
5.3 (b)Students who have completed at least six degree units by the end of 2018 and attain a cumulative GPA of less than 1.5 shall be excluded from undergraduate studies at the University, but may enrol in sub-degree level courses, and if successful may subsequently apply for re-entry to undergraduate study.
 
5.4 (b) Students who had been placed on probation in 2018 will be excluded from the University if they do not attain a gpa of 2.0 at the end of semester 2 2018.
 
 
2. EXCLUSION FROM STUDIES AFTER ATTEMPTING THE UNIVERSITY COURSES (UU courses)
 
At its third meeting held on 11 September 2018 Senate had approved that students may attempt the compulsory University courses (UU courses: UU100, UU114, UU200, UU204) THREE TIMES during the course of their programmes.
 
Senate further agreed that if a student fails the third attempt of any of the University courses, that student shall be excluded from the University.
