ART. 388.  The faculty of each college or school shall approve suitable and effective provisions governing delinquent students, subject to the following minimum standards:

a. Warning – any student who obtains final grades at the end of the semester below “3.0” in 25 percent to 49 percent of the total number of academic units in which he/she is registered shall be warned by the Dean [through the College Secretary] to improve his/her work.

b. Probation – any student who, at the end of the semester obtains final grades below “3.0” in 50 percent to 75 percent of the total number of academic units in which he/she has final grades shall be placed on probation for the succeeding semester and his/her load shall be limited to the extent to be determined by the Dean [through the College Secretary]. Probation may be removed by passing with grades of “3.0” or better in more than 50 percent of the units in which he/she has final grades in the succeeding semester.

c. Dismissal – any student who, at the end of the semester, obtains final grades below “3.0” in at least 76 percent of the total number of academic units in which he/she receives final grades shall be dropped from the rolls of his/her college of school.

ART. 389. Any student on probation who again fails in 50 percent or more of the total number of units in which he/she receives final grades shall be automatically dropped from the rolls of his/her college or school.

ART. 390. Any student dropped from one college or school shall not ordinarily be admitted to another unit of the University, unless, in the opinion of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs/Director for Student Affairs, his/her natural aptitude and interest may qualify him/her in another field of study, in which case he/she may be recommended to be admitted through channels to any unit.

ART. 392. Permanent disqualification does not apply to cases where, on the recommendation of the faculty member concerned, the faculty certifies that the grades of “5.0” were due to the student;s unauthorized dropping of the subjects and not to poor scholarship. However, if the unauthorized withdrawal takes place after the mid-semester and the student’s class standing is poor, his/her grade of “5.0” shall be counted against him/her for the purpose of this scholarship rule.  The Dean shall deal with these cases in their individual merits in the light of the recommendation of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs/ Director for Student Affairs; provided, that in no case of readmission to the same or another college shall the action be lighter than probation.

ART. 393. For purposes of scholastic standing, a grade of “INC” is not includeed in the computation; when it is replaced by a final grade, the latter is to be included in the grades during the semester when the removal is made. The grade of “4.0” is counted until it is removed. Once removed, only the final grade of “3.0” or “5.0” is counted.

ART. 396. No re-admission of dismissed or disqualified students shall be considered by the Dean or Directors without the favorable recommendation of the University Guidance Counselor. Cases in which the action of the Deans or Directors conflicts with the recommendation of the University Guidance Counselor may be elevated to the Vice Chancellor for Instruction or its equivalent, whose decision shall be final.
