CAP for Continuation and Graduation

For students admitted before AY2016/2017:
To graduate, an undergraduate student must have a minimum CAP of 2.00. To remain in good academic standing, and to continue in an undergraduate programme of study, a student may not have:

  • CAP below 2.00 (but ≥ 1.50) for three consecutive semesters; or
  • CAP below 1.50 for two consecutive semesters.

For any semester in which the student's CAP falls below 2.00 (but ≥ 1.50), that student will be issued an academic warning. If, in the following semester, the student's CAP again falls below 2.00, s/he will be placed on probation. If the student's CAP remains below 2.00 for the third consecutive semester, the student will be issued a letter of dismissal by the Registrar and denied re-admission.
For students whose CAP falls below 1.50 for two consecutive semesters, they will be placed on probation for the first semester, followed by dismissal in the second semester.

For students admitted from AY2016/2017 onwards:
To graduate, an undergraduate student must have a minimum CAP of 2.00. To remain in good academic standing, and to continue in an undergraduate programme of study, a student may not have CAP below 2.00 for two consecutive semesters.
For any semester in which the student's CAP falls below 2.00, s/he will be placed on probation. If the student's CAP remains below 2.00 for the second consecutive semester, the student will be issued a letter of dismissal by the Registrar and denied re-admission.
A dismissed student may submit an appeal if there are extenuating circumstances, to the relevant Faculty/Department within two calendar weeks of the last day of the release of each semester's examination results. Normally every student is allowed only one such appeal per candidature. If the appeal is rejected, the student will not be re-admitted. If the outcome of the appeal is positive, the student will be given one semester in which to achieve the minimum CAP required for continuation and graduation.
