Withdrawal Policy

Withdrawal Policy During Course

  1. General Policy. Graduation program in the disciplines of CE, CSE, EECE, ME, AE, and NAME are planned for four regular levels, comprising of 8 regular terms. It is expected that all students will earn degree by clearing all courses in stipulated time. In case of failure the following policies will be adopted:
    • Students will be allowed to repeat any level only once but have to complete the course within six years of registration. Unsuccessful students are liable to be withdrawn from the program.
    • Students failing in not more than two courses/subjects in any level comprising two regular terms will be re-examined after a short term of about 6 weeks.
    • Referred examination will be conducted at MIST before commencement of next level.
    • Students failing in maximum one course/subject in the re-examination will be promoted to the next higher level. The failed subject will be termed as backlog subject and the students have to pass the backlog subject in the next scheduled re-examination, but without any short term. Otherwise, he/she will be withdrawn.
    • Students in all levels will be allowed to appear at maximum two courses/ subjects including the backlog one.
    • Students will be allowed to appear in the re-examination of a particular course/ subject twice only.
    • Failure to obtain minimum 2.20 GPA in consecutive two levels will also lead to withdrawal.
    • After level-4 re-examination, if any student fails in maximum one course/subject but not the backlog subject, then he or she will be allowed to appear in the next scheduled re-examination of the respective course. By this way he/she will be allowed to complete the course in maximum six years.
    • Medical ground which leads to missing of more than 40% class or a term final examination (supported by requisite medical documents), affected students may be allowed to withdraw from that term and repeat the same next year, subject to the approval of Academic Council of MIST.
  2. Withdrawal for Poor Performance.
    • CGPA. A student in order to remain in reasonable standing must maintain a minimum CGPA of 2.5. Students obtaining CGPA less than 2.00 shall be withdrawn from the program. Any student who fails to maintain a CGPA of 2.5 at the end of a semester, but obtains 2.00 or more, will be placed on probation. Failure to raise the CGPA to 2.5 in the next semester will warrant his withdrawal from the program. A student who has been on probation once and has cleared it but anytime later reaches a CGPA standing of less than 2.5 will also be withdrawn. Students failing to maintain CGPA 2.5 at the end of the final semester will be allowed to repeat courses of the final semester in which he earned ‘C’ grades or below. This opportunity will be given only once. Failure to raise CGPA to 2.5 after repeating the courses will warrant withdrawal from the program.
    • Internship. Internship report of students will be graded as per normal grading system. Failure to obtain a ‘C’ grade will call for redoing the internship program and is allowed only once. Failure to obtain a ‘C’ grade on internship shall lead to withdrawal of a student.
    • Failure in Course. Students will be allowed to repeat courses failed in any semester with the next batches, subject to his/her standing and validity of registration.
  3. Withdrawal on Disciplinary Ground.
    • Unfair Means. Adoption of unfair means may result in the withdrawal from the program and expulsion from the institution. Following would be considered as unfair means adopted during examinations and other contexts:
      • Communicating with fellow students for obtaining help in the examination.

  5. Temporary WithdrawalAcademic Council may allow a student to take temporary withdrawal from a course or the program due to sickness or any other reason provided he/she holds a reasonable academic standing at that point of time. Such withdrawal is to be obtained within four weeks of the beginning of semester for reasons other than sickness. Those who have incomplete grades will not be permitted to withdraw. Upon re-entry, the student must complete the required courses of the program remaining in force. The student can only be accommodated within the course offered for the regular students.
