Each student shall be under the control and discipline of the concerned institution. In case of any misconduct on the part of a student, the institution shall have a power to take disciplinary action against the defaulter, to the extent of cancellation of admission of the defaulting student from the rolls of the institution.

Minimum Credits and Minimum CGPA required for a degree

The credits for the courses in which a student has obtained ‘P’ (minimum passing grade for a course) grade or higher shall be counted as Credits earned by him/her. A student shall have to earn a minimum of such number of Credits as may be required for the award of a degree in a particular course/discipline. A student, who has obtained a minimum CGPA of 4 and earned a minimum number of Credits as per scheme as specified for the programme, shall be eligible for the award of the respective degree.

a) A student shall be required to maintain a minimum of 4 CGPA at the end of the final semester of his/her degree programme. If his/her CGPA falls below 4 at the end of final semester, the student will be declared as having failed in that particular year and will have to seek readmission in the odd semester of the particular year.

For Example: In three year UG programme, the candidate having failed in the (final) 6th semester will have to seek readmission in the 5th semester.

b) A student getting ‘F’ grade in any course will be treated as having failed in that course. If he/she fails in a course, he/she will have to repeat the course and will have to obtain at least ‘P’ grade in that course within the maximum period defined above in table 4 (IX) to complete the degree for that programme. A student who does not complete the programme of study within the minimum duration of the course of his/her study, or gets ‘F’ grade in any course shall not be eligible for any merit position/medal/award of the University.
