3. How are subjects and credits assigned per term?
The subjects are assigned by the academic body in each term based on the supply and demand that exists at the time to complete the corresponding quotas. Special attention is paid to their distribution in relation to the curricular map of their program. During the academic year, which consists of 5 terms of 8 weeks of work each term, our students receive assignments ranging from 3 to 6 credits.
Undergraduate and Master are distributed in two subjects for each period, while the Doctorate program may offer either two courses (3 credits each) or a single course of (6 credits). The University can be flexible based on the needs and particularities of each student. One week before the beginning of each term, the student receives an e-mail notification of his/her assignments corresponding to that period. The first 15 days of the term are available for any necessary adjustments to be made to the course offerings and records. More information can be found in the university catalog, Section 10. Course Description.
4. What are the types of subjects that can be assigned to me?
There are three ways in which a course can be opened during a term:
- Regular: Course consisting of 5 or more students enrolled and developed with weekly activities and Forums that receive continuous feedback from the designated instructor and classmates, based on the online education environment.
- By competences: Open course for 1-3 students as a special learning module that allows them to continue their curricular itinerary from an individual work with the preparation of a final integrative work.
- By Tutoring: Open courses for 1-3 students where, given the level of complexity of the subject matter, the systematic support of a tutor is necessary to guide the learning process throughout the weeks.
5. How can I check the grades of my courses?
At the end of a course the student has the classroom platform open where he/she can review the grade of a particular course. To see a student unofficial transcript, they will have to access the SIS with his username and password (https://sis.humboldtiu.com). In the upper section it shows "My menu", "Forms" and then "final grades". You can also request an Unofficial transcript from the university to track your GPA.
6. What happens if I fail a subject?
If the student fails a subject, he/she will have the opportunity to repeat it in subsequent periods, if it is not a prerequisite to be able to take a subsequent subject. A warning and follow-up will be given to keep the student's GPA within the allowed margins. If he/she fails a second time, he/she will be placed on Academic Probation during the following term and if he/she continues to fail, his/her continuity in the program will be evaluated.
7. Would it be possible to take a temporary break without unsubscribing from the program?
If due to medical or personal reasons you need to pause your studies or withdraw from the program, the university offers you the opportunity to do so for at least one semester. Your status would then become "Leave of Absence". To obtain a leave of absence, the student must submit a request in writing or by telephone to the Registrar's Office. The request must specify the reason for the absence, the effective date, the start date, and the date on which the student expects to return to the University. During this period, the student's academic load will be withdrawn and reinstated for the next available period where the student's exception concludes. For more information, please contact the Registrar's Office at the following email email@example.com
8. Can I unsubscribe from an academic year? What is the procedure for this?
Yes it is possible, but you must take into account the deadlines for adding or dropping courses, as they may vary depending on the academic calendar and established policies. A student who wishes to withdraw from a course may do so without penalty during the add/drop period (fourteen days after the start date). However, if a student withdraws after the add/drop period has ended, but before the beginning of the third week of classes, he/she will be given a grade of "W" in that course, which means that in the future he/she will have to retake the subject. A student who does not comply with the drop procedure will be given a grade of "F" and will be dropped from this course.
Humboldt International University reserves the right to withdraw courses due to unexpected circumstances.
9. Does the University keep my transcript?
The University, whether the student graduates or is withdrawn from the program, keeps the official documentation in the student's academic record for 5 years. After that period, if the student needs any official documentation, he/she may request it directly from the Registrar's Department.
