- Failure to adhere to the timetable or other requirements as indicated in the course outline distributed by the instructor at the beginning of the semester.

- In case of not fulfilling the above-mentioned academic requirements: the academic review process begins with placing the student under Academic Probation for the next semester. The student will be notified of that decision.
- If the student is not able to adjust his/her GPA by end of the next semester, he/she would be prevented from registring any new courses until the conclusion of the GPA Adjustment Process.
