Graduation Check Process (UG)
After the close of the application period, Academic Registry will conduct a two-stage graduation check for each potential graduate against the graduation requirements for their program. If a student has also enrolled in an additional major and/or a minor program, a further check is done against the major program’s requirements and/or minor program's requirements.
Applicants for graduation will be notified the results by email at the stage of preliminary check and final check. If students are found short of any graduation requirement, they will be denied from graduation automatically and they should approach their advisor or department immediately. Students should submit a new application for graduation if they wish to graduate in the subsequent terms.
(For students admitted in the 2018-19 intake or after)
Students who have successfully completed all degree requirements after the final graduation check may submit a request or by email to swap any course to enhance the Major Cumulative Grade Average (MCGA) by the respective deadline stated in the Key Dates for Graduation section.
Students should also note that NO further changes in the academic record (MCGA or Class of Honors) will be entertained after their graduation is approved by the University. Therefore, while checking their grades, students should check the MCGA from the advisement report regularly.
(For students admitted in the 2017-18 intake or before)
Students who have successfully completed all degree requirements after the final graduation check may request to exclude some graded courses from the GGA calculation. Any request should be sent to the major department directly after all the grades are finalized at the end of the term. Students should contact their major departments for details and should observe if there is any earlier deadline set by their major departments.
Students should also note that NO further changes in the academic record (GGA or Class of Honors) will be entertained after their graduation is approved by the University. Therefore, while checking their grades, students should check the GGA and courses excluded from the GGA Calculation from the unofficial transcript regularly.
Students are also requested to check their contact information (e.g. phone numbers or addresses) to avoid delay in communication. Invitation to Congregation will be sent to their email and mailing address as recorded with the University. For any changes, please update the information directly on web via the Student Center or via the Alumni System if students no longer have access to the system which requires a valid ITSC computer account.
