  1. The grades of the students are computed based on the following criteria:

    • Major Examinations   –        30%
    • Class Standing          –        70% 

    However, the faculty may assign the components and weights in the computation of the class standing (recitation, reaction/critique paper, research, oral & written reports, book review, self-made portfolio of readings and personal theories, attendance, other types of participation, quizzes, other requirements).

  2. A grade of 0.00 (Failed) is given due to the following reasons:

    • Inability to satisfy the minimum requirements of the subject/s
    • Excessive absences
    • Unofficial dropping

  3. If a student fails to complete the requirements in a course, he/she is given a grade of incomplete (INC.). INC grade should be completed within one (1) school year. Otherwise, he/she will have to enroll the respective course again. 
  4. A change of grade by the teacher may be allowed only if there was an error in the computation of the final grade (to be done within the succeeding semester) or upon completion of requirements (within one school year if the grade given was INC.). However, the change must be substantiated by pertinent documents such as class record, final examination paper and other related documents.

  5. Midterm and Final Grades should be shown to the students.

  6. No numerical grade will be given to Thesis Writing/Dissertation Writing. Only the word PASSED will be reflected in the manuscript, grading sheet, and the transcript of records.
