For our Emeritus diploma programs our grading system uses a grade point average (GPA) scale that runs from 0 to 10. Students are assigned a final GPA in each of the required courses on a scale of 0 to 10. On completing an individual course within the programs, a course GPA is awarded along, with a status of Distinction/Pass/Low Pass/Fail respectively. Distinction in a course is awarded to students who have scored average GPA of 9 or above. Each diploma program has different GPA requirements for the passing status. Students should refer to the requirements provided for the respective diploma within the learning management system.

The overall diploma program GPA is calculated as an average of the course GPAs received across the required courses. At the end of the program, students who have scored overall diploma program GPA of 9 or above achieve the status of “Emeritus Scholars”.

The minimum overall program GPA required for graduation will vary depending on the diploma program you select. Per our academic policies, to successfully complete the diploma program and receive a diploma certificate, you need to Pass all the required courses and the capstone project, and you must not fail any course or the capstone project or both.
