Registration and Course Information
Official admission to specific program at GUB precedes registration for courses. The registration process consists of three steps:
(a) The selection of courses with the assistance of an advisor.
(b) The submission of registration materials.
(c) The payment of tuition and other fees for the approved program
The registration process is completed only after tuition and other fees are paid in accordance with the payment instructions. A student will not be allowed to register if there are unpaid fees in the previous trimester. Without completing registration, no student will be allowed to attend the classes. Registration dates for each trimester are announced in advance by the Office of the Registrar.
To be considered a full-time student, a student must carry a minimum of 12 credits and 9 credits per trimester for undergraduate and graduate program respectively; otherwise s/he will be treated as a part-time student. A student willing to take more than 15 credits and 12 credits in a trimester for undergraduate and graduate programs respectively must take written permission from the Dean of the Faculty. A student may change the status of full-time or part-time twice in the entire program. The application for changing the status must be submitted to the Dean of the Faculty at least 2 weeks before the class commencement date of each trimester.
Students who do not complete registration during the period specified in the registration instructions may do so during the late registration period. Students registering late may be subject to a late payment fee determined by GUB authority time to time. The university reserves the right to refuse registration to a student who does not adhere to published registration schedules.
Add/Drop of Courses
Students must obtain permission from their academic advisor or the Dean of the Faculty to add or drop courses. Without penalty students may add or drop courses in the second week and with penalty they may do so in the third week from the class commencement date in each trimester. The amount of penalty will be announced by the Office of the Registrar.
A student willing to withdraw from all courses before the end of the second week from the class commencement date in each trimester must write an application and submit it to the Office of the Registrar. The date on which the Registrar signs the withdrawal form is considered the official withdrawal date. A student who leaves the university without officially withdrawing in this manner receives a failing grade (F) in each course.
A student is not eligible for any adjustment of tuition fees unless the withdrawal is formally reported to the Office of the Registrar. A student who leaves the university after the second week receives grades of F in all courses.
Readmission to GUB
A student who is dismissed from the GUB for any reason, or who withdraws during a trimester, or who fails to register for the next regularly scheduled trimester may not register again without receiving permission from the Dean to re-enter GUB. Students seeking re-entry to GUB must initiate the process at least 3 weeks prior to the beginning of the trimester for which registration is sought.
The privileges of registration, advance registration, and receipt of transcripts are barred to students having outstanding obligations to the university. Obligations may take the form of unpaid monies, unreturned or damaged books and equipment, other charges for which a student may become legally indebted to the university, and failure to comply with the disciplinary sanctions or administrative actions. The departments or offices may place “holds” on registration, and transcripts for any students having an outstanding obligation.
