The scheme to be used for conversion of numerical marks to letter grades shall be as prescribed in Faculty regulations
The courses to be used for the purpose of determining the Weighted GPA for the class of degree to be awarded shall be as prescribed in Faculty Regulations.
(i) Where credit for a course taken at another institution is requested, it is the student’s responsibility to provide all the information needed by the University to enable it to assess the course.
Credit hours earned from another institution at the time of admission to the University of the West Indies will not be used in the computation of a grade point average.
The following shall apply to credits earned by a UWI undergraduate from another approved institution:
A UWI student who wishes to take academic courses elsewhere and apply those credits toward the UWI degree must obtain approval in advance from the relevant Academic Board on the recommendation of the Board of the Faculty in which he/she is registered.
(ii) A student must have obtained a minimum UWI GPA of 3.00 to be approved to take courses as an exchange/ transfer student.
(iii) Only the grade equivalent as determined by the Board for Undergraduate Studies of the results achieved and not the marks or grades so earned at another institution shall be used in the computation of the student’s GPA.
Except where otherwise prescribed in FacultyRegulations, a student whose GPA for a given semester is less than or equal to 0.75 shall be deemed to be performing unsatisfactorily, and shall be placed on warning. A student on warning whose GPA for the succeeding semester is less than 0.75, will be required to withdraw. However, a student may be reinstated if his/her GPA improves beyond 0.75 by credits obtained in Summer School. Then the credits would be rolled in to the GPA of the preceding Semester of the academic year.
Where a course has been repeated, the penalty to be applied for failure and the grade to be used in the computation of the student’s GPA if the course is subsequently passed, shall be as prescribed in Faculty Regulations.
For the purpose of determining the Weighted GPA, failed courses shall be treated as prescribed in Faculty Regulations.
(ii) A student on warning shall be counselled by the Dean or a designated faculty advisor. Such a student may, except where otherwise prescribed in Faculty Regulations, be permitted by the Academic Board on the recommendation of Faculty Board to carry a reduced course load.
A registered student may be permitted to audit a course on the approval of the Dean and the Head of Department.
