3. Academic Committee

In any university, it is sometimes necessary to propose and discuss regulations on academic matters. Disputes may arise such as those related to fairness of grade, flexibility of requirements, or allegation of dishonesty in study.

TTU will set up the Academic Committee to assist the Vice-Provost for Academic Affairs, deans, and the Registrar in proposing and applying regulations and procedures in relation to academic matters as well as considering difficult cases.

The Academic Committee will consist of the Vice-Provost for Academic Affairs (chairman of the Council), register director, deans and two members as instructors of each department to be appointed by the dean, president of student association. Heads of relevant courses are encouraged to attend meetings of the Council to express their opinions on proposed regulations or consideration of specific situations.

A meeting of the Academic Committee will be held if so attended by at least 60% of its members.

The Academic Committee will discuss and review all study policies, regulations and changes of procedures prior to the implementation of the Registrar, as well as give advice to the Registrar and Vice-Provost for Academic Affairs.

The Academic Committee will listen to students’ appeals in relation to grade, withdrawal, and disciplinary matters related to the study. The Committee will also invite students, student’s advisors, and the deans to meet and express their opinions and requirements. Then, the committee will record opinions in writing and submit to the Vice-Provost for Academic Affairs.

4. Academic Office

The Registrar is responsible for recording all of relevant information on the students, including course registration, grade, course completion, and graduation requirements. Director of the Registrar will confirm graduate students and prepare diplomas with signature of the University Provost for students. Students may make a request for issuance of academic transcripts (for completed courses and achieved grades) and a copy of graduation diploma (after graduating).

01 week prior to each semester, students are required to complete the registration of classes with the Registrar. The list of classes and courses will be distributed to instructors at the beginning of each semester. Students not mentioned in this list will not be allowed to attend the class.

Prior to the third class of any course, students may register to withdraw from the course registered with the Registrar.

To maintain the study and be eligible to scholarship benefits, students are required to complete at least 15 credits per main semester, 33 credits per year (including summer semester).

The Registrar is responsible to keep records and maintain the confidentiality of students’ information. Student records may only be provided to relevant students themselves. Other persons that want to refer to students’ academic transcript must obtain the consent of University Faculty.


4.1.Study forms at TTU

School Year: Applied for Medical School

Students under school year form will attend all of the courses according to curriculum of TTU.

Credit: applied for other schools

Usually, students are required to have 120-128 credits for graduation.

Credit is defined as a unit to determine amount of a student’s study inside and outside the class (reading, research paper, laboratory report, examination, etc.). 1 credit = 3 hours of study (classwork + homework) each week x 15 weeks = 45 hours.

Most of courses have 3 credits. Each of 3-credit course = 9 hours of study each week (typically include 3 hours of classwork + 6 hours of homework) = 135 hours

For sciences and engineering courses, in addition to study hours in the class, it normally requires hours for laboratory practice. 3 hours of laboratory practice each week is equal to 1 credit. A course with laboratory practice normally has 4 credits.

Typically, a student studies at least 5 courses per semester, which is considered a condition for scholarship entitlement.

A+ = 4.0

A = 4.0

A- = 3.7

B+ = 3.3

B = 3.0

B- = 2.7

C+ = 2.3

C = 2.0

C- = 1.7

D+ = 1.3

D = 1.0

F = 0.0

The Grade Point Average (GPA) is the grade equivalent for each course times the number of credits for that course, summed for all courses taken, divided by the total number of credits attempted.

To graduate from TTU, a student must have:

  • 120-128 credits subject to student’s major; a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 in the entire university program required for graduation.

  • Completed mandatory courses in accordance with regulations of MoET

The final examination may be a set of problems, a summary report, a research paper or other form appropriate to the course.

Written examinations

Written examinations will last 2 hours. Examination schedule will be announced 01 week before the examinations.

Project or “take-home” examinations

In place of a written final examination, the professor may assign a set of final problems or cases, a special research project, essays to be completed at home rather than in an examination room, an oral presentation, or other appropriate work. All of works in other forms will be due during the examination period.

All work must be submitted before the end of the examination period.

4.17. Academic Honesty

The Academic Affairs Committee will develop a statement of policy on academic honesty. It will be distributed to all students and all instructors and included in the Student Handbook and the Faculty Handbook.

Professors are expected to mention and discuss academic honesty with students at the start of each course, and to include a statement about it on their course outline (syllabus).

4.18. Plagiarism

Plagiarism means copying the work of someone else and presenting it as your own.

Students may not use more than 25% of knowledge on the Internet for homework. If so, he or she will receive an F.

During the first academic year, students will be taught how to properly note and acknowledge sources of information. This is not easy, and must be done by examples and demonstrations. Professors must not assume that students understand the difference between finding and using information and copying someone else’s work.

The normal penalty for plagiarism (copying) is a grade of ‘F’ (fail) in the course. In some cases, such as failing to properly note the source of one paragraph, the penalty may be less.

Original work on assignments

All assignments submitted by students must be their own, original work. Copying from other students, or from any other source, is not permitted under any circumstances.

When students have a group assignment with a group report, the professor will explain how that will be prepared and evaluated.

4.19. Cheating on Tests and Examinations

Tan Tao University does not tolerate cheating on examinations. Any student found cheating on an examination, for example by using unpermitted materials or by copying from another student, will either be dismissed from the university or will receive a grade of ‘F’ (fail) for the course.

Suspended students will have to repay the entire scholarship received from the school.

Reporting academic dishonesty

A course instructor who discovers an instance of academic dishonesty must report it to the dean, who will inform the Registrar and the Vice-Provost for Academic Affairs. The dean will keep a confidential record of such instances within the School, and the Registrar will keep this record for the university.

Records relating to academic dishonesty will be destroyed if and when the student graduates.


The penalty for a first instance of academic dishonesty will normally be an ‘F’ in the course. If the instance is flagrant, for example organized cheating on an examination, the penalty may be dismissal from the university.

A second instance of academic dishonesty will normally result in dismissal from the university.

Penalties for academic dishonesty will be imposed by the Vice-Provost for Academic Affairs, in consultation with the dean and the Registrar. If the student believes that dishonesty did not occur or did not deserve the penalty imposed, he or she may appeal to the Academic Affairs Committee. The Committee will make its recommendation to the Vice-Provost, who makes the final decision.

4.20. Submission of course grades

A grade for each student enrolled in a course must be submitted by the instructor to The Registrar no later than one week after the date of the final examination.

If the course has a project or essays or other final exercise, grades must be submitted no later than one week after the last day of the examination period.

The Registrar will enter grades in the student’s record as they are submitted by instructors, then posts student’s grades online within 2 weeks since the receipt.

4.23. Grade of Incomplete (I)

TTU will avoid the widespread practice of easily permitting late work by students, completed after the end of the semester and covered by a grade of ‘I’ (Incomplete).

If because of illness, family emergency, or some other necessary and unavoidable cause a student cannot complete the work for a course, the student may request a grade of I (Incomplete). The request must be:

  • In writing to his or her academic dean.

  • Approved by the course instructor.

  • Received before the start of the examination period.

If a grade of ‘I’ (Incomplete) is approved, the student must submit missing work by the end of the third week of the following semester. The instructor will then submit a final grade based on the work the student has completed up to that time.

4.24. Grade Changes

After grades have been submitted, students often request re-evaluation of their semester’s work and a better grade. This puts pressure on the instructor to be kind and have a good heart by changing the grade. The pressure felt by the instructor may be acute if the grade change would result in an increased scholarship or other advantage for the student.

At TTU grades may be changed by the instructor only for reasons of “clerical error” – a mistake in computing or recording the grade. This could be, for example, a failure to record as completed an assignment which the student did in fact submit. Grades may not be changed due to submission of late work, revised work, or additional work.

Grade changes must be requested by the instructor on a signed grade change form submitted to the Registrar. The form will include the student’s name, the course number and section, the incorrect grade, the correct grade, and a signed statement that the reason for the grade change is an error in calculation or recording.

4.25. Appeals of Grades

If a student feels that a grade has been given unfairly, as a result of un-careful or inaccurate evaluation of the student’s work or personal feelings of the instructor, the student may appeal for a grade change. In this case the student will:

  • Consult with his or her faculty adviser.

  • Submit a written petition to the dean.

The dean will consult with the student and the course instructor. The dean may submit a request for change to the Registrar.

If the situation is still not resolved after consultation with the dean, the student may appeal to the Academic Affairs Committee.

4.26. Improving grade

If a student wishes to improve his or her scores, student has to apply for improving grade and a fee (2 million/1 credit). Student can pay this fee in several times. However, student is not eligible to make a loan to pay this fee. Former scores of student are still remained on the transcript, but the GPA is based only on the last grade.

4.27. Academic Good Standing

To remain in academic good standing, a student must study full-time (minimum of 33 credits in a semester, not including college skills courses), total study period not exceeding 6 years. Especially, Medical students must study a minimum of 50 units of study, total study period of 8 years.

Have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 and a GPA for the last completed semester of at least 2.0.

4.28. Probation

If a student fails to achieve a GPA of 2.0 in the last completed semester, he or she will be on probation.

If in the following semester the student again fails to achieve a GPA of 2.0, she or he will be asked to withdraw from the university.

In this case, students can be readmitted after a semester or longer away from TTU. The decision to readmit or not will be made by the Vice-Provost for Academic Affairs.

4.29. Second examinations

TTU does not give second examinations. Student who receives an F (0 points) will have to pay the tuition fees.

4.30. Absence from the final examination

Unless there is an excused absence, any student absent from a written final examination, or who fails to turn in project work assigned in place of a written final examination, will receive a grade of ‘F’.

Excused absence from a final examination

Students may be excused from a final examination, written or project-based, only for emergency reasons, such as a medical emergency or a family emergency which takes the student away from campus.

Students absent from a final examination must request permission for a make-up or second examination within 48 hours after the missed examination. Permission must be granted by the Dean of the School, who will consult with the instructor of the course.

If the student is excused, a temporary grade of ‘X’ will be recorded. A make-up examination will be scheduled and completed within three weeks after the start of the following semester. The make-up examination must have questions different from those in the first or regular examination. The instructor will grade the make-up examination and submit a course grade, which replaces the grade of ‘X’.

4.31. Medical Withdrawal from All Classes

In certain emergency medical situations, a student may submit an application for school leave. Medical withdrawal must be supported by a letter from a health professional and must be approved by the Dean of the School.

In this case, a grade of W will be recorded for each class, with a note on the student’s record that withdrawal was for medical reasons.

A student who withdraws for medical reasons is encouraged to resume study at TTU as soon as circumstances permit. The student will consult with her or his faculty adviser to complete missing work and receive a grade or to re-take courses in a later semester.
