Academic Standing A students academic standing for a specified semester is based on the GPA. The overall academic standing is based on the CPA. The CPA determines the student status of Good standing (KB : Kedudukan Baik), Probationary standing (KS : Kedudukan Bersyarat) or Fail Standing (KG : Kedudukan Gagal) based on the following values : STANDING STATUS Good Standing (KB) Probationary Standing (KS) Fail Standing (KG) CPA CPA 2.00 1.70 CPA < 2.00 CPA < 1.70

The student in this example has the following academic standing : Semester I II GPA 3.89 3.80 CPA 3.89 3.84 Academic Standing Good standing (KB) Good standing (KB)

84

Students whose GPA < 1.00 can be terminated from their studies or can be suspended from their studies for the following semester even with CPA > 1.70. Approval to continue with their studies can be granted only by The Senate. Students with Probationary Standing (KS) for THREE (3) times in a row will be given a Fail Standing (KG) and will be terminated from their studies. Academic standing for a Short Semester will not be given although the GPA and CPA are calculated accordingly. Grades obtained in a Short Semester will only be included in the calculation of the CPA in the subsequent regular semester (Semester I). The Senate may consider an appeal made by a first semester student who obtains a Fail Standing (KG) status to re-register, provided the student has made an appeal to the Faculty. The student can be asked to defer his study for one semester before re-registering for the course offered. Deans List A students who obtains a GPA of 3.50 and above will be awarded a Deans List certificate, provided that he or she has registered for at least TWELVE (12) credits hours for that semester exclusive of any HS or HW subject . Deans List will be printed on the students transcript. Conferral Of Degrees Students who have fulfilled all the requirements for graduations must submit an application for a degree conferral in a particular semester within a specific duration. Students who do not apply within the specific duration will only be awarded with a Good Standing (KB)(Completed Study) (KB(TT)) status. The students can apply for the degree conferral in any of the following semesters. Students who fail to submit an application for the degree conferral FIVE (5) years after the completion of their study will not be conferred a degree except with The Senate approval. Students who have utilized all their semesters though have a Good Standing (KB) are not qualified to apply for degree conferral. Students who do not meet the degree conferral requirement, but submitted an application for a degree conferral are subjected to a fine. Classification Of Degree The classification of diplomas and degrees conferred to a students I based on the final CPA, as below :DIPLOMA COURSES First Class Diploma Second Class Diploma BACHELORS DEGREE COURSES First Class Honours Second Class Honours (Upper) Second Class Honours (Lower) CPA STATUS CPA 3.50 2.00 CPA < 3.50 CPA STATUS CPA 3.67 3.00 CPA < 3.67 2.00 CPA < 3.00

ACADEMIC ADVISORY SYSTEM The Faculty provides a comprehensive academic advisory system for its students for the duration of their study. The need for Academic Advising Students studying under the Semester System need appropriate advice for the following reasons :i. The semester system allows students to plan their study and build their own schedules based on the course offerings for a particular semester. Students can choose not to take or to defer subjects according to their own respective academic standings and fulfill their graduation requirements Students may have difficulties in discussing problems among themselves if they are taking a subject together with a group of students of different age of status. The semester System is an intensive learning system that uses the method of continuous assessment, which students must learn to adapt to. Newly enrolled students, especially in the First Year could also face personal problems.

ii. iii.

The Academic Advisory System was set up to advise students in solving problems associated with academics as well as to facilitate them to adapt to and benefit from the system. Each student is assigned to an Academic Advisor, who is an Academic Staff of the Faculty. At the Faculty of Computer Science & Information Systems , students are assigned to Academic Advisors from the Department that the students are majoring in. The Academic Advisor facilitates the solving of problems faced by the student under his/her charge. The Academic Advisor may need to refer the students under his/her charge to other concerned parties such as a counselor, a doctor, or a lecturer teaching a particular subject. The Responsibilities Of The Academic Advisor Prior to subject registration (or pre-registration) of any semester, students need to discuss the selection of subjects with their respective Academic Advisors to determine the suitability of the subjects. Among the matters to be clarified to the students include prerequisite subjects and the status of specific subjects such as Compulsory Attendance (HW), Attendance Only (HS) and so on. The Academic Advisor must ensure the appropriateness of the number of credits registered by each student based on the students capability. The full responsibilities of an Academic Advisor are as follows :i. ii. iii. iv. v. vi. Keeping records of the progress of students under his/her charge. Checking and verifying registration forms and matters related to academics. Advising and assisting students in planning their study programme in terms of selection of subjects, total credits carried, and duration of study. Monitoring the academic progress of each student and making appropriate changes if needed. Advising and instructing the students on the implications of registration for and withdrawal from subjects. Provide extensive briefings on the following matters to all new students related to academic registration: a. The Semester System as noted in the Peraturan Akademik of the University.

b. c. d.

The course curriculum offered to the students. The specific majors offers in the program adopted by the students. The forms: i. Borang Pendaftaran Mata Pelajaran UTM.E/3.1 ii. Borang Pembetulan Slip Pendaftaran Mata Pelajaran - UTM.E/3.5 iii. Borang Tarik Diri Mata Pelajaran UTM.E/3.2 iv. Borang Pindah Kredit Mata Pelajaran UTM.E/3.8 v. Borang Penganugerahan Diploma/Ijazah UTM.E/7.7

The Responsiblities of The Student The responsibility of the Student is to meet with his/her Academic Advisor to obtain the appropriate advice and solve problems that may arise. The full responsibilities of a student are as follows :i. ii. iii. iv. v. vi. vii. Meeting the Academic Advisor during the first week to receive general briefing on the Semester System and other matters relating to studies. Obtaining endorsement of subject and examination registrations. Seeking advice from the Academic Advisor on preparation of study programme in the aspects of subject selection, total credit hours to register and duration of study. Obtaining endorsement for application to withdraw subjects. Seeking advice on the effects of registration and withdrawal of subjects. Informing and discussing with the Academic Advisor on academic performance and on any problems encountered throughout each semester. Obtaining endorsement for application of graduation.
