Deferment of Program
Students may defer their study program for two continuous semesters only, provided that the maximum period allowable for completing the program is not exceeded. A student who wishes to interrupt his/ her study program has to apply in advance to the Registrar through the Head of Department, stating the reasons for the interruption. The decision of the Dean shall be communicated to the Registrar, who shall then communicate to the applicant the duly granted permission before he/ she leaves the Institute.
A student, who interrupts his/ her studies program for more than four continuous semesters will
be deemed to have lost any accumulated credits. Such a student may however, be allowed to re-
apply for admission into the Institute.
In cases where the grounds for interruption of studies are medical, the advice of an approved medical officer shall be required on the propriety and length of the period of interruption.
Any student who does not go through the approved procedures before interrupting his/her studies shall be deemed to have abandoned his/her studentship. The Registrar will be entitled to remove such a student from the student rolls.
