- Students are allowed to transfer to other programmes within the Faculty of Management Sciences or into other Faculties in the University. This usually takes place at the beginning of 200 levels and the form is obtainable at the Academic Affairs Unit of the Registry. Students desiring to transfer must satisfy the University admissions requirements and other requirements of the Department/Faculty where they seek to transfer. They must also have been duly released by their former Department and Faculty.where
i. Nine (9) Semesters of course work consisting of lectures, tutorials assignments and laboratory work (where required).
ii. (One) Full Semester of Students Industrial Work Experience (SIWES). Examination and Grading under the Course Unit System
Assessment of students’ performance shall be continuous. The final examination for each course shall normally be at the end of the semester in which the course is offered. The final course grades shall be made up of the continuous assessment score (which shall carry a maximum mark of 30%), and the end of semester examination score (which shall carry a maximum mark of 70%).
ii. Attendance: In order to qualify for a course examination, a student shall be required to achieve 75% attendance of all the scheduled classes (Lectures and Laboratory work) for the course.
iii: Absence from Examination
A student who is absent from a course examination without official permission will
receive a grade of f permission may be granted only on compassionate or granted medical grounds, where evidence is provided by the University Health Centre.
Terminologies (a) The unit of a course is defined in term of weekly duration for the course per semester. For example 1unit has lecture duration of one hour weekly for one semester of about 15 teaching weeks. The size of a course semester, except for projects and industrial. Work experience which may carry more than three units
(b) A core courseis one which must be re glistered for and passed by a student to get the degree, and is counted towards the classification of his/her degree.
An elective course is either compulsory or optional
A compulsory elective is one that shall be counted towards the classification of his student degree
An optional elective is a course that may be taken by the student and may not be counted toward the classification of his/her degree.
For the purpose of determining the class degree, the CGPA shall cover 100 to 500 level courses for UME students and 200 – 500 for direct5 entry student
8. Grading System
A five-point grading system is currently being adopted as shown below
Mark Range Letter Grade Grade Point Interpretation
70 - 100 A 5 Excellent
60 - 69 B 4 Very Good
50 - 59 C 3 Good
45- 4 9 D 2 Satisfactory
40 – 49 E 1 Poor, but pass
0- 39 F 0 0 Failure
9. COMPUTATION OF RESULT
The following terminologies and abbreviations are commonly used in the computation of students’ results throughout their four/five years stay in the University.
i. Total Load Units (TLU)
This is the total number of course units carried by a student in a particular semester. It is the summation of the load units on all courses carried during the semester, for example, a student who is taking 8 courses of 2 units each has a T.L.U. of 8 X 2 = 16for that semester.
ii. Cumulative Load Units (CLU)
This is the summation of total load units over all the semesters from the beginning to date. A student who is prone to repeating courses will finish (if he/she does not drop out) with a higher C.L.U. than his non- repeating colleagues, and will most likely require a longer time to complete requirements for the award of a degree.
iii Total Credit Point (TCP)
This is the sum of the product of course units and rating in each course, for the entire semester. For example consider a student who took 6 courses of 3 units each, suppose the grade he/she obtained in the six courses were A, B, C, D, E and F respectively. The TCP of this student unit X grade point 3x5+3x4+3x3+3x2+3x1 +3x0= 15+ 12+9+6+3+ = 45. 0
iv. Cumulative Grade Point (CGP) This is summation of Total Credit Points L from the beginning to date.
v. Grade Point Average (GPA)
This is the Total Credit Points (TCP)m divided by the total load unit referred to in section (iii), T.C.P. is 45.0 and (i.e. 6 courses of 3 units each for the semester, GPA is therefore 45/18 = 2.50. The highest possible be earned is 5.00 and that is when a student has earned “A” grade in every course during the semester. The lowest G.P.A. obtainable is 0.00 signifying "F" grade all through
vi. Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPM This is not the summation of GPAs for all the. semester of TCP for all the semester by the summation of TLU for the said semester GPA, the obtainable range for CGPA is from 0. 00 to 5.00 in effect, CGPA = CCP/CLU , where CCP is CLU is Cumulative Load Credit Point and Cumulative Load
vii. Final Assessment and Class of Degree
First Class 4. 50 – 5. 00
Second Class Upper Division 3. 50 – 4. 49
Second Class Lower Division 2. 40 – 3. 49
Third Class Division 1. 50 – 2.39
viii. Academic Probation
A student whose CGPA at the end of a semester is less that 1.00 shall be placed on academic probation at the end of that semester
ix. Withdrawal from the University Due to Poor Academic Performance
Any student who fails to attain a CGPA of at least 1.00 for any two consecutive semesters shall be advised to withdraw from the University.
x. Repetition of Courses
Any course failed by a student must be repeated until passed. A student may repeat only those courses in which he/she has obtained a grade of F. The grade earned for a repeated course shall be recorded and used in the computation of the GPA and CGPA in the usual way.
i. Whenever a student is caught for any examination the case offence, the case shall be reported to the Invigilator/supervisor in the Hall immediately
ii. The Invigilator shall fill the necessary form reporting the case of examination misconduct and the student should be made to write a statement on his/her involvement. Thereafter, the student shall be allowed to continue with the examination.
iii. The Invigilator/Supervisor shall then report formally to the Deputy Registrar, Academic Affairs.
iv. The Student will then be invited to appear before the Examination Malpractice Panel to defend him/herself verbally
v. The Examination Malpractice Panel offence (s) alleged to have been committed by the student and allow him/her to defend him/herself in the light of his/her statement, which he/she had submitted
vi. The report and recommendations Malpractice Panel shall be forwarded U
consideration and approval.
vii. Student may appeal against the decision of the senate within 14 days of communication of the decision to him / her
l0b. ACADEMIC MISCONDUCT AND STUDENT DISCIPLINE
i. Any action which prejudices the integrity of the university. Examination shall be considered to be an academic misconduct and shall be punishable disciplinary action
ii With respect to all proceedings under and regulations in relation to academics discipline student shall be presumed innocent until contrary is established
