Academic Rules

Registration

Students have to complete registration formalities before the commencement of each semester, as per schedule notified by the Registrar's Office.

Any late registrations are subject to availability of seats in that course, and liable to payment of fine.

The plan of studies offered at FJWU reflects a holistic vision as per the recent educational reforms. However, this development essentially involves extended logistics specifically for managing General Education Courses where students are offered to opt for choices.

The option, none-the-less is limited in the sense that there is no possibility of revisiting the choice. Students are facilitated to add /drop courses during a semester as per rules and after completion of due formalities.

Attendance

A minimum of 75% attendance per course is mandatory to be able to take the final term paper/s.

Grading System

Absoulte System is adopted by FJWU.
