Academic Advising

The following Advising policies are applied to all undergraduate students under the Department of Film and Television at CUB.


Course Registration

Within the due date and before the commencement of each term, a student has to fill up a course registration form in consultation with and under the guidance of his/her advisor. The date, time and venue of registration are announced in advance by the Registrar's Office. Much counseling and advising are accomplished at this time. It is absolutely essential that all the students be present for registration at the specified time. Late registration is, however, permitted during the first week on payment of a late registration fee.

Limits on the Credit Hours to be taken

A student must be enrolled for at least a minimum of 9 credit hours and the allocated credit hours offered for that term and a maximum of 18 credit hours. A student must enroll for the sessional courses prescribed in a particular term within the allowable credit hour limits.

Course Add/Drop

A student has some limited options to add or delete courses from the registration list. Addition of courses is allowed only within the first week of a term. Dropping a course is permitted within the first two weeks of a term.

Withdrawal from a Term

If a student is unable to complete the mid-term or final examination due to serious illness or serious accident, he/she may apply to the chairman of the department for total withdrawal from the term within a week after the end of the respective examination. However, he/she may choose not to withdraw any laboratory/ sessional/ design course if the grade obtained in such a course is `D' or better. The application must be supported by a medical certificate from the chief or authorized medical officer of the university. The Academic Council will take the final decision about such applications.

Course Retaking

If a student receives a failing grade in a course, he /she will be able to repeat that course. The grade earned on the retake will be shown in the transcript along with the "F" grade earned in the first time the course was taken. For the FNT program, the grade earned on the course repeated will replace the "F" in computing CGPA. A FNT  student can also retake a course if he/she obtain a grade below "C+ in a particular course. In that case, the grade earned in the course repeated will be substituted for the previous grade in computing CGPA. However, the previous grade will also be shown in the transcript. A student is allowed to have a maximum of four "F grades. A course can be retaken only once.


To obtain the degree in Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television , a student will have to complete at least 129.00 Credit Hours including assigned projects and training and must pass all the required courses, have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.20.
