are able to use the facilities provided in the University to pursue the goal
of academic excellence.

1. Matriculated Students : Students who are admitted to any degree


programme, have paid the prescribed registration fees and signed the
Matriculation register as required by the University.

COURSE REGISTRATION

All matriculated students are required to register for courses every


semester until they have fulfilled the graduation requirements. Course
Registration can be done during the Pre-Registration Exercise, Add/Drop
Period as well as the Adjustment Period. Failure to register for the courses
by the end of the first week after the commencement of a regular semester,
will result in the termination of studies. The course registration is
conducted through the Web/Internet subject to the policies and procedures
as outlined in the Course Registration Guidelines.

1. Pre-registration : All currently enrolled students, who expect to


continue their studies in the following semester, are required to pre-
register for courses on the assumption that they will pass all the
courses registered in the said semester.

2. Registration of Courses for New Students : Course registration for


new students is held during the Ta’aruf Week.

3. Late Registration : This is meant for currently enrolled students who


failed to pre-register their courses in the previous semester and did
not attempt the Web-Based Add/Drop Exercise. It is held in the first
week of classes during regular semesters and the first three days in the
short semester. A penalty of RM100 will be imposed on these
students.

4. Web-Based Add/Drop : The Add/Drop exercise is meant for students


who need to adjust their course registration prior to commencement of
a new semester. Eligibility to add or drop courses is given to students
who fail pre-requisite courses or if there is an increase in
CGPA/workload eligibility after the release of the examination
results. The Web-Based Add/Drop exercise is conducted beginning
four to five days prior to commencement of a semester.

5. Adjustment Period : Students who have not secured minimum credit


hours in a regular semester may adjust their course registration at the
respective computer labs during the first week of the semester. No
adjustment of courses will be allowed after the period.

6. Drop Only Period : The period starts from the 2nd week until the end
of the 4th week of a regular semester. Students who wish to drop

3
courses must ensure that the total credit hours do not fall below the
minimum workload required. Any courses dropped during this period
will not be reflected in the student’s transcript.

7. Academic Workload : A range of credit hours or contact hours


registered in each semester. The workload of any student is
determined based on the CGPA system formulated by the kulliyyahs.
(Please refer to the Academic Workload by Kulliyyah for details). No
full-time undergraduate student, except a graduating student, is
allowed to register for a workload of less than twelve (12) credit hours
or its equivalent in any regular semester. In the Short Semester, a
student can register for a maximum of two (2) courses or courses in
which the maximum number of contact hours is thirty-two (32) per
week.

8. Course Withdrawal : Dropping a course after the 4th week up to the


10th week is called Withdrawal. Students may withdraw from a
course if they are unable to cope with the demands of the course,
provided the academic load after withdrawal does not fall below the
minimum workload. A fee of RM300 per course will be imposed on
approved withdrawal cases.

From the 11th until the 13th week of classes, subject to the approval
of the Dean of the Kulliyyah, a student may appeal for a Late Course
Withdrawal with a fee of RM500. No withdrawal applications will be
entertained after the 13th week. A Grade ‘W’ will appear on the
students’ transcripts for courses that are withdrawn.

9. Registration of Co-Curricular Activities : Co-Curricular activities are


organized by the Student Development Division. Registration for the
course/activity is compulsory. Credits are given to the course and the
grades will be computed in the CGPA system.

10. Confirmation slip : A slip containing the details of all courses


registered in a semester by a student which is printed after the Pre-
registration or Add/Drop exercises and to be retained by the student as
his/her official academic record for the semester. Students must
secure new confirmation slips every time they make changes to their
course registration.

11. Section cancelled : A section of a course may be cancelled by the


Kulliyyah after being offered due to unforeseen circumstances such as

4
small enrolment or unavailability of lecturers. In such cases, students
may re-register for another available section or another course during
the Add/Drop period.

12. Section Closed & Reserved Status : A section of a course will be


closed if the class has reached the maximum class size. During pre-
registration, students may reserve a place in the sections that are
closed. The Kulliyyah will make further deliberation after which the
students’ status will be confirmed and announced before the following
semester commences.

13. Petitioned Courses : Students may petition for a course during the
Pre-registration Exercise if the said course is not listed in the Schedule
of Classes or is not offered in the coming semester.

14. Contact Hour : Actual instructional interaction between the academic


staff and the students measured in terms of hours.

15. Credit Hour : The academic load of a course measured in units per
semester. Usually, one contact hour of lectures is equivalent to one
credit hour.

16. Independent Study : An arrangement where a graduating student


registers for a course required by the programme which is not offered
in the current semester or the course is offered but the time clashes
with his other courses. Such an arrangement must be made in the first
week of the semester.

17. Audit : Auditing a course requires the permission of the instructor and
approval of the Deputy Dean (Academic Affairs). An auditor receives
no credit for the course. An audited course is recorded on the
student’s transcript with the grade “AU” but does not affect the
student’s grade point average. A student who is auditing a course is
not required to take the end-of-semester examination but must satisfy
the attendance requirement otherwise an “F” grade will be recorded
and computed into the CGPA.

A course may not be changed from credit to audit status or vice versa
after the deadline established by the Senate. Under exceptional
circumstances, a request for change may be approved by the Deputy
Rector (Academic and Research).

5
18. Class List : The list of all students enrolled in a class which is
generated three (3) times in a semester (After the adjustment period,
after the drop only period and after the withdrawal period). Students
are required to confirm with the course instructor their status in the
class for the said course and section in the 1st week, 5th week & 11th
week of the semester. Details of the course outline and the
assessment mode are usually distributed by the course instructor
during the first class meeting.

19. Recording of Attendance : Effective from Semester I, 2006/2007,


students are required to flash/stripe their smartcard to the reader
available in the classroom to record their attendance. Student may
check their attendance record at http://itdportal/smartcard/iiu.edu.my.

6
ASSESSMENT & EXAMINATION

Students’ performances in courses registered will be assessed based on


Continuous Assessment and the End-of-Semester examination.

1. Compulsory Class Attendance : Students are expected to attend all


class sessions for each course they have registered. A student who has
been absent for a total of 20% will be barred from the end-of-semester
or final examination. A warning letter will be issued by the lecturer
when a student is absent for 10% of the class session. Students who
are barred will receive a ‘Y’ grade which is equivalent to an ‘F’ grade.

2. Continuous Assessment : A process of assessing and evaluating


student’s performance and learning achievement in a course in an
effective manner throughout the semester. It includes quizzes,
assignments, projects, class participation, mid-term test and end-of-
semester examination.

3. Common End-of-Semester Examination : All courses especially


those which have multiple sections will have a common End-of-
Semester Examination (Centralized Examination). Under certain
exceptional circumstances the Dean of the Kulliyyah may recommend
to hold the examination prior to the specified period (Decentralized
Examination). However, the lecturer needs to get the consensus of the
students in the class before submitting the application for
decentralized examination to the Dean of the kulliyyah.

4. Examination Timetable : For common or centralized end-of-semester


examinations, an examination timetable will be issued to students.
The preliminary timetable will be issued to students and lecturers for
feedback two months prior to the final examination. The final
timetable will be issued one month before the examination. Students
can access the preliminary and final timetables through the Internet at
http://www.iiu.edu.my/student.shtml.

5. Examination Slip : A slip which contains the information pertaining


to the examination schedule of each course registered by each student
such as the date, time and venue of the examination. Students can
access and print their slip one week before the end-of-semester
examination through the internet at
http://www.iiu.edu.my/student.shtml.

7
6. Pass/Fail Option : Some courses may be taken on a pass/fail option
basis rather than a letter grade. Two types of courses are offered on
the pass/fail option. They are pre-requisite courses and practical
training. A Resit examination is also graded on pass/fail basis.

7. Source of grade : The grade obtained for each course must be based
on the overall performance in the continuous assessment. The end-of-
semester examination shall carry a weight ranging from 40% to 60%.

(A) (A* B)
(B)
1) ACC 2055 C+ 2.33 x 3 = 6.99
2) ECON 1150 B- 2.67 x 3 = 8.01
3) ECON 1510 B+ 3.33 x 3 = 9.99
4) MGT 2010 B 3.00 x 3 = 9.00
5) TQB 1000M A- 3.67 x 0 = 0.00
