In terms of strict adherence to academic programs, there are two types of students: regular and irregular students. The definition of each type is outlined below.
1. Regular Student
A regular student is one who strictly follows the subject sequence of the prescribed curriculum, and observes the subject sequence pre-requisites.
A regular student is expected to finish the course program within the prescribed number of semesters/years based on the effective curriculum upon admission.
The maximum unit load of a student for a given semester is indicated in the curriculum.
2. Irregular Student
An irregular student is one who is unable to follow the subject sequence of the subjects outlined in the program curriculum, due to reasons of failure, dropping, leave of absence, and/or shifting. The program may or may not be finished within the immediate prescribed number of semesters/years.
