Tishk International University Summer Term (School) Rules
2018-2019 Academic Year
Information to Students
With regard to the decision taken by the University council, summer term course rules have been newly designed because in this summer term students are given make-up examinations. Along with the below mentioned rules, new rules have been provided in the ‘student handbook, 2018, Chapter 7’. Please read the newly designed rules diligently.
Aim of Summer Term:
- a) Students have the opportunity to take upper year courses, so that they have a chance to graduate earlier.
- b) Students have the opportunity to increase their grades, so that they have a better average (increase GPA).
- c) Students who have failed their courses during the academic year have an opportunity to take the same courses in summer term.
Some important points students need to know:
- Students who have failed the courses FF, FD, DD–, DC– and due to attendance (NA), may have summer term courses yet attendance and payment is compulsory. In summer term students are allowed utmost 3 courses (course hours are given twice as much as credit; for instance, a course which has 3 credits will be taught 6 hours in a week).
- A course will be opened in summer term on condition that minimum 4 students enroll (If there are 4 and/or 5 students enrolled in a course, each has to pay $ 75 per credit). If there are more than 5 students enrolled in a course, in this case each has to pay $ 50 per credit hour in summer term. Students other than TIU will pay % 50 more per credit (for instance Tishk International University students will pay 50$, others will pay 75$).
- Educational term for summer term is 6 (5+1) weeks. The first five weeks include summer term mid-term and other exams. 6th week is the period for final exams.
- For further details, you may contact your department heads.
- All passing grades, attendance rules, disciplinary rules will be applied according to ‘Undergraduate Education and Examination Regulations, and Disciplinary Rules of Tishk International University’.
- Summer term registration process will be implemented through SIS system (as in other semesters).
