F. Period of Probation
The first semester of the student’s attendance at the university is his period of probation. During this time, he must demonstrate scholastic ability, an aptitude for the program of study, high moral ideals, and the willingness to cooperate with every detail of the university program.
F.1. Scholastic Standing, Probation, Suspension and Dismissal
Every student is expected to maintain a satisfactory record while attending the Adventist University of the Philippines.
For students taking a four-year course, an over-all grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.25 is considered a minimum standing. Students who perform below this level will be placed on scholastic probation and must submit a notarized waiver signed by the parent/guardian, and the college Dean during the pre-registration. This means that during the semester they are placed on probation, they should make special efforts to raise their grades above the minimum level. Students who are on scholastic probation for two consecutive semesters will have their cases taken to the College Council for review and may be asked to shift to another course upon consultation with the Guidance Director. Students who do not meet the required GPA will be denied admission to the university.
For a student taking a two-year technical education course, the minimum over-all GPA is 2.0. If he fails to come up with the required GPA for one semester he will be placed on academic probation. Failure to reach the required GPA for two consecutive semesters, after all efforts have been exerted to help him raise his grades, will disqualify him to continue with his program of study at the university.
