Retention Policy


A student who obtains failing grades in more than six (6) units of Mathematics and/or Physics at the end of a school year shall be removed from the program, unless he/she is of senior standing. (A senior standing BS Physics student should have at least 70 units of Physics and Math courses.) Students are subject to evaluation at the end of every academic year.
