Determination of Grades
Final grade of a course includes all the studies (mid-term exams, quizzes, land studies, practices, assignments, projects, workshops, seminars, attendance, laboratory studies, etc.) within a semester with respect to such course and the result of the final examination according to the performance evaluation system of the course. The relevant lecturer announces the achievement evaluation system regarding the courses to be offered within one week following the beginning of each semester.
The achievement grades of a course are submitted to the relevant administrative unit within the time specified in the academic calendar and the results are announced at personal page of each student provide by https://sais.epoka.edu.al/.
Semester and Cumulative GPA
A student's Semester Point Average is computed by multiplying the numerical grade received in each course by the number of credits offered for each course, then dividing by the total number of credit hours studied during the term. Two digits after the comma in the division are rounded to the next whole number.
A student's CGPA is computed by multiplying the numerical grade received in each course by the number of credits offered for each course, then dividing by the total number of credit hours studied. However, only courses on the instructional program are considered when CGPA is computed.
Failure, Achievement, Honor and High Honor
A student passing a course with CC is considered as successful. A student who takes FD and FF from a compulsory course, is considered as unsuccessful and has to repeat that course. A student who takes FD and FF from an elective course is not obliged to retake the same failed elective course, but he must successfully pass all the elective courses envisaged in the study program and fulfill all the credits designated to elective courses in the study program. A student with a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 and above and without a FD or FF grade in a course in the program is considered as successful. Students should pass all the courses in the program in order to satisfactorily complete the undergraduate study program.
The student whose CGPA at the end of the fourth semester is less than 1.80 out of 4.00 cannot take courses from the upcoming semesters and is considered on “probationary” status. In order to overcome the probationary status the student repeats the course/courses from the first semester until the end of the fourth semester. Upon the fulfillment at least one time of the minimum 1.80 CGPA condition, the student can take course/s from the upcoming semesters.
Students in the Bachelor and Integrated Second Cycle Study Program of Architecture whose CGPA at the end of the fourth semester is less than 1.80 out of 4.00 can take only the ARCH 301“Architectural Construction Project”, ARCH 302 “Architectural Design IV”, ARCH 401 “Advanced Design Studio I” and ARCH 402 “Advanced Design Studio II” course during upcoming semesters.
The CGPA of the transferred student is calculated based on his/her courses taken at Epoka University, if at the end of the fourth semester at Epoka University the CGPA is less than 1.80 out of 4.00 the transferred student is considered on “probationary” status.
At the end of each semester, students who have achieved all the courses of that semester and whose semester CGPA is between 3.00 - 3.49 are placed in the honors list, and students whose semester CGPA is between 3.50 - 4.00 are placed in the high honors list.
Increasing Cumulative Grade Point Average
Students wishing to increase their CGPA can take the courses they took in previous semesters again. The last grade received by the student with respect to any course will be valid when calculating the CGPA.
From the beginning of the third semester onwards, students who have successfully fulfilled the requirements of all of their courses in previous semesters and who have a minimum CGPA of 3.00 may take one course from a semester of the following year with the approval of the advisor, or those who have a CGPA of 3.50 or above may take two courses from a semester of the following year with the approval of the advisor.
Any prerequisites with respect to taking any specific course shall be implemented according to the education program made by the boards of relevant departments which are determined by the faculty Board.
