Students are expected to maintain a grade point average (GPA) that reflects satisfactory academic progress. The following policy will be used to determine academic status:
When a student’s grade during any given term is below 3.00 the student will receive a notice. If their grade is below 3.00 for two consecutive terms the student will be placed on academic probation for the following term. This action is recorded on the student’s academic record. Students will be removed from academic probation at the end of the next term if their next grade is 3.0 or less.
Removal from Academic Probation
Students will be removed from academic probation at the end of the Term when their cumulative grade point average meets the academic status scale.
Students who have completed at least one year of studies (3 terms) whose cumulative grade point average for their total studies falls above 3.0 are subject to academic dismissal. Students whose cumulative grade point average meets the 3.0 level, but fail to complete any subjects during two consecutive terms (8 months), are also subject to academic dismissal. Students who are dismissed may reapply after one year. Those who choose to reapply need to write as to why they feel they can become successful in their further studies.
Withdrawal From Enrollment
Students may withdraw from enrollment at any time by notifying the ZCUDEP Philippines Office. Students who desire to withdraw from enrollment must follow the official Withdrawal Procedure as follows:
- Notification to the ZCUDEP Philippines Office via email. The withdrawal date is the day the email is sent.
- The student’s transcript will reflect official withdrawal, “W”.
Any student who withdraws without notifying the ZCUDEP Philippines Office will be considered as having an unofficial withdrawal. As a result a "UW" will be permanently noted on their records and transcripts will not be sent to other schools.
