RETENTION

          A foreign student must maintain an overall GPA of 2.0 or above and abide by the rules and regulations of SPAC and laws of the Philippines.

ACADEMIC PROBATION

          When for any reason a student’s cumulative GPA falls below 2.0, he/she will be considered an academic delinquent and placed on academic probation. He/She is not allowed to participate in co-curricular activities which demand many hours of preparation and/or may cause him/her to miss classes. If he/she is staying outside the campus, he/she will be required to live in the dormitory so he/she can attend the supervised study period and can be closely monitored. A student admitted on academic probation will be allowed to take a minimum of 18 units only in the first semester. If in the next semester the student is still on academic probation, he/she will be allowed to take 15 units only. In the third semester on academic probation, the student will be allowed to take 12 units only. A student who remains on academic probation for three successive semesters shall be denied admission the following semester.

Other marks that will make a student an academic delinquent are:

  1. One or more F’s or FA’s
  2. Two or more D’s

          An academically-suspended student shall not be readmitted for at least one semester. If after a suspension of one semester, the student seeks readmission, he/she must bring his/her parents/guardians with him for a conference with the Admission Committee which reserves the right to accept him/her or not.
