Asian University for Women (AUW): the first regional, liberal arts institution in South Asia

Student Enrollment and Progression Policy

  • Candidates who have been successfully admitted into AUW are required to register for student enrollment with the Academic Registry. Their student status commences with the first year of enrollment until graduation or withdrawal.

    The maximum period of enrollment at AUW is six years, including Pathways for Promise (Pre-Access) and Access Academy. Students who enter AUW through admission into Access Academy or direct entry into the Undergraduate Program may remain enrolled for the duration of their program, plus one additional year. Exceptions to this enrollment timeline may be granted on a case-by-case basis by the Academic Actions Committee of the Academic Board.


    Study Plans, Course Selection and Registration

    All students are required to register for courses according to their Program Study Plan.


    Students who enter the Undergraduate Program are required to complete an Individual Study Plan in consultation with their assigned Academic Advisor and the respective Degree Plan of each Major. The Degree Plan is an essential tool for students to plan their academic journey, course selection and progression toward graduation, based on program requirements.


    The Individual Study Plan must be approved by the student’s Academic Advisor and submitted to Academic Registry according to the time periods announced by Academic Registry each semester. Study Plan forms can be collected from the Academic Registry.


    During Course Registration, students are required to register for the courses indicated in their Individual Study Plan. Amendments and updates to the study plan will be invited each semester, after the closing of Course Registration and ahead of the next semester registration session.


    Owing to the short duration of the summer semesters, students who register for a summer course but wish to withdraw from the course should notify the instructor at least one week before the start of the semester. Students who do not appear for the first class, or during the first week, will receive a “W” (Withdrawn) in their Transcript.


    Minimum and Maximum Course Enrollment Requirement

    For the duration of the two 16-week Fall and Spring Semesters, students are required to register for four (4) courses, with a minimum of three (3) courses and a maximum of five (5) courses, if their CGPA is 3.0 and above.


    For the duration of the two 4-week Summer Semesters, students are encouraged to register for one (1) course per semester, or at least one (1) course in either summer semester. Students may register for a maximum of two (2) courses per summer semester, if their CGPA is 3.0 and above.


     Minimum GPA Requirement

    All students are required to maintain a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0 each semester and a Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0, in order to progress to the next semester and year of enrollment.
