Guidelines

Co-Curricular Credits Guidelines

  1. Co-curricular credits are optional.
  2. Students are eligible for Co-curricular credits at any time during the degree programme, but only after their first semester. The exception to this rule is Technology Literacy. You may register for this at any time during your Undergraduate degree programme, even if you are a year one student.

  3. Co-curricular credits can replace a level one course. Each student is eligible for no more than three Co-curricular credits towards his/her degree programme.
  4. Co-curricular credits shall normally form part of the required credits for a degree. However, if Co-curricular credits are earned in excess of those required for the degree, these and the associated course will be included on the student’s transcript.
  5. Students must be involved in the Co-curricular course for at least one semester.
  6. Co-curricular courses are equivalent to a Level 1 semester course and are NOT used in the calculation of your weighted Grade Point Average (GPA).
  7. The grading of Co-curricular activity shall be PASS/FAIL only.
  8. Co-curricular credits cannot replace core course requirements in any faculty. 
  9. The withdrawal process for a student registered for a Co-curricular course is the same as that for any other course.
