Course Success and Course Repetition

Semester grade point average (YNO – SPA): is calculated by dividing the total credit points obtained from all courses taken in a semester by the total credit values of the courses.

Cumulative grade point average (GNO-GPA): is calculated taking into consideration all courses the student has taken from the time the student entered the program. If there are repeated courses, they are included in the grade point average with the last grade obtained from those courses which replaces the previous grade.

High Honor and Honor Students: Every semester, on condition that they are registered to a regular course load and have a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 or above, students whose Semester Grade Point Averages are between 3.00-3.49 are included on the Honor list, and students whose Semester Grade Point Averages are 3.50 or higher are included on the High Honor list.

Successful Students: Students who have a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 or higher qualify as successful. Successful students may repeat courses in which they received DD or DC to raise their grade point average. Courses with the grades CC or higher cannot be repeated. Probation Students: Students whose cumulative grade point averages are below 2.00 qualify as Probation students.

Probation students cannot take extra course loads and have to repeat courses in which they received DD and DC to raise their grade point averages.

If probation students who have completed their first two semesters meet any of the requirements listed below they qualify as students who have not reached ‘Satisfactory’ status.

Number of Total CreditsCumulative Grade Point Average
<51<1,60
51-100<1,70
>100<1,80

 

Students who cannot reach satisfactory status repeat courses in which they received F, FX, DD and DC until they reach satisfactory status. On condition that there are no courses left in which they received F, FX, DD, DC, they may take as many new courses as their course load allows. Courses with grades of CC or higher cannot be repeated.

The expression credit refers to credits completed.
