To: Graduating Students in 1st term 2019-20
Re: Checking of Course Fulfillment, Major GPA and Major Upper GPA for Graduation
As you are expected to graduate in 1st term 2019-20, kindly note the following and take appropriate actions.
1. Check Fulfillment of Course Requirements
Please select “My Academic Requirements” under CUSIS to run the “Advisement Report” to check if you still have any outstanding requirement(s) for graduation. If you still have outstanding University/ Major Programme requirement(s) at the moment, you will NOT be able to graduate in 1st term 2019-20. If you need to register course(s) in 2nd term 2019-20, you need to seek approval from your Major Department.
Please also check under “My Academics” whether related academic records i.e. 2nd Major, Minor(s), Concentration(s)/ Stream of study of the Major Programme registered are correct. You MUST contact RES by 7 February 2020 if there is any discrepancy.
For those who cannot fulfill the course requirements for the declared Minor Programme(s), they will receive notification via email from RES around mid-February 2020 for cancellation of their unfulfilled Minor Programme(s).
2. Check Major GPA and Major Upper GPA
The grades for 1st term 2019-20 will be released on 21 January 2020. Please check your Major GPA and Major Upper GPA in the “Advisement Report” under CUSIS after the release of grades. You MUST check carefully the courses that are included in the calculation of Major GPA/ Major Upper GPA, especially for those students who have applied for course substitution/ equivalence. As Major GPA is one of the criteria for determination of honours classification, you MUST report to RES by 7 February 2020 at the latest if you find any error or have queries about the GPA shown under your “Advisement Report” in CUSIS.
Please note that you have to re-run the “Advisement Report” and check your updated Major GPA/ Major Upper GPA again if there is a change in grade(s) in your Major course(s).
3. Release of Graduation Results
Students who are approved to graduate by the Undergraduate Examinations Board without any pending requirements/records (e.g. pending official transcript from exchange for confirmation of course and unit exemption, with demerit record under review, etc.) may enquire their degree honours classification after 9:00 a.m. on 19 March 2020 on RES homepage.
