  1. Financial Obligation before Re-Admission:

Before a student may be considered for re-admission, he/she shall be required to clear any debt standing against him/her before withdrawing from the university.

  1. Time Limit for Re-Admission

A student who withdraws from the university for any reason and who is not re-admitted within a period of three consecutive academic years from the date of his/her withdrawal, may not be credited any course(s) taken prior to withdrawal should he/she return to the university.

                                                                 CHAPTER SEVEN

                                                                GRADING SYSTEM

A student’s work in the university is presently graded in the following letters and each carries an equivalent number of grade points, thus:

 

7.1 Grade Classification

Percentage Score                     Letter Grade               Points              Rating

70-100                                     A                                 5                      Excellent

60-69                                       B                                 4                      Very Good

50-59                                       C                                 3                      Good

45-49                                       D                                 2                      Fair

40-44                                       E                                  1                      Pass

0-39                                         F                                  0                     Fail

NB: Recently, according to NUC directive, starting from students admitted in the 2013/2014 academic session, the following adjustments were made thus abolishing the E grade:

45-49                                       D                                 2                      Fair

0-44                                         F                                  0                      Fail

To determine the final grade a student receives in a course at the end of a semester, 30% weight is given to the continuous assessment and 70% to the semester examination.

7.1.1 Grade Point Average

At the end of each semester a student’s grade point average is worked out. Supposing he/she offers the following courses:

Department                 Course No.                  Title of Course                                    Credit Unit

G.S.                             101                              The Use of English 1                           2

G.S                              102                              The Use Of English 11                       2

G.S.                             105                              Natural Science                                   2

Fre,                              101                              Elementary French 1                         2

Soc.                             102                              Introduction to Sociology 1              2

Anth.                           102                              Introduction to Anthropology                     2

Anth.                           303                              Nigeria People and Cultures          3

Total Credit Units                          15

Assuming that he/she makes C, A, D, A, A, E and C respectively, according to the grading system , the total point of each of the courses will be worked out as follows:

G.S.                             101      2          X         3          =                      6

G.S                              102      2          X         5          =                      10

G.S.                             105      2          X         2          =                      4

Fre,                              101      2          X         5          =                      10

Soc.                             102      2          X         5          =                      10

Anth.                           102      2          X         1          =                      2

Anth.                           303      3          X         3          =                      9

Total Points                                                     51

The total credit unit will be 15 while the total points will be 51. In order to find the grade point average, the total number of points, 51, is divided by the total number of credit units 15, to give 3.4 which is a second class lower degree.

The classes of degrees are stated thus:

First Class – 4.5-5.00

Second Class Upper – 3.5-4.49

Second Class Lower – 2.40-3.49

Third Class – 1.50-2.39

NB: The Pass degree was recently abolished by the university authority.

 

7.2 Course credit unit system

Each course has a stipulated number of credit units attached to it. This may be one, two, three or four. The number of credit units attached to each course is related to the content of the course. A two- credit unit course, for instance, is less in content than a four-credit course. The number of credit units assigned to a given course is determined by the university. The usual computation being one credit unit per semester for time a class meets during the week. Thus, a class meeting two times per week will carry two credits for the course per semester. For laboratory and studio classes, the usual credit figure is one credit unit for each two hours in a class per week. However, some departments do vary this assessment slightly, and so may have and in fact, have had one credit for each three hours in a class per week.

7.3 Minimum and Maximum Credit Load for Students

The semester credit load for any student shall be between 15 and 24, in accordance with NUC guidelines. The exact credit load a student carries within this range shall be worked out by the student’s academic adviser with the approval of the Head of Department and Dean of Faculty.

7.3.1 Sitting for Courses as External Candidate

A final year student, who, after his/her examinations has a CGPA of 1.0 and above, may be permitted to sit for failed courses only up to a maximum of 14 credit units per semester, as an external  candidate, without registering formally as a regular student the following session. He/she shall, however, inform the Registrar in good time through, his/her Head of Department of his/her intention to register the course(s) as an external candidate. Courses registered and passed in the final year shall not be repeated by the student as external candidate.

 

7.3.2 Conditions for Repeating a Semester

A final year student who fails in more than 14 credit units per semester shall register a minimum of 15 credit units per semester as a regular student and pay the necessary fees.

7.3.4 Minimum Credit Units Required for Graduation

The absolute minimum aggregate credit unit required for graduation is as follows:

6 year standard programme 180 units

5 year standard programme 150 units

4 year standard programme 120 units

3 year standard programme 90 units

2 year standard programme 60 units

1 year standard programme 30 units

 

Class Period and Attendance

Classes are expected to begin on the hour and end ten minutes before the next hour. Seminars and laboratories shall, however, continue as long as scheduled. Attendance at lectures, seminars, practicals and examinations is mandatory. No student shall be allowed into a class unless he/she has been properly registered for the course and his/her name is on the official class list for that course.
