UL Places 10,000 Students on Probation

first_imgTo streamline its academic activities in order to produce higher calibre graduates, authorities at the University of Liberia (UL) have with immediate effect, notified more than 10,000 undergraduate students that they have been placed on probation due to their “poor academic performance,” a UL Relations official has confirmed. The probation list was released a few weeks after the UL announced the names of its “good academic standing list,” which showed that more than 1, 400 students acquired cumulative Grade Point Averages (GPA) of at least 3.0 and above, while 16 students had perfect GPAs of 4.0.            In a statement issued yesterday, UL authorities said the probation notice serves as a strong warning for students to perform better during the current semester. “When grades are tabulated for the current semester, those on double probation will be suspended from school for one semester, while those in the category of three successive failures (semester GPA below 2.0) would lead to academic expulsion in keeping with the UL Student Handbook,” the UL statement stipulates.The lists were compiled by the office of Enrollment Management.  The first list showed that 5,349 students are on single probation after failing to maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 or scored grade “C” for the 2nd semester of academic year 2012/2013. Names of students on probation are being concealed.  Instead, the public will identify them by their identification numbers or their major courses of study that are already posted on the UL bulletin board.    According to the UL Student Handbook Chapter IX, “A student is placed on Probation…, if his/her GPA for any semester falls below 2.0 or scores “C” at the end of the semester.” Therefore, for students on double probation, the Handbook says, “…he/she may remain at the university if the cumulative average is not less than 2.0 at the end of successive two semesters.” The double probation list shows that the Business College, with an enrollment of 11,242 students, has 1,955 or 17 percent on probation. The College of Agriculture and Forestry with an enrollment of 3,551 accounts for 755 or 21 percent on double probation; while out of the 8,000 in the Science College, 1852 or 23 percent of them are being placed on double probation.  Liberia College has a total enrolment of 5,524, but 598 or 10.8 percent of them are on double probation.As for Teachers’ College with 1, 993 students, there are 186 or 0.9 percent on double probation.  A further breakdown by departments shows the double probation affects 819 representing 15.33 percent of students from the Accounting Department; General Agriculture has 342 students, representing 10.14 percent; Biology Department has 533 students representing 10.35 percent, and Geology Department shows 532 students or 9.9 percent. However, based on the rules, students on the double probation list are likely to be suspended for one semester, but after serving the suspension, they will have the opportunity to apply for re-admission. Additionally, the Handbook states that a student is dropped from the university when at any time following the readmission after serving the suspension, his/her cumulative GPA remains less than 2.0 at the end of the semester.   That student will be dropped permanently from the university. The UL statement, signed by the vice president for UL Relations, Noris Tweah, added that presently, the university has more than 35,000 students on five campuses. Following the outbreak of the Ebola Virus Disease, the university reopened on March 17.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Veracruz on to InterLiga finals

first_img Roethlisberger wasn’t winking when he made the comment, but no doubt was accentuating the theme of the day inside the Steelers’ locker room. Namely, that the whole country is picking against them, and they might as well start packing for their six-month vacation before training camp starts. “I don’t think anybody is picking us to win,” Roethlisberger said. “Obviously, they’re the best football team in the NFL and we’re just the Pittsburgh Steelers. We’re going to go in and obviously try to find a way to just put a few points on the board and compete.” Ben Roethlisberger made a candid admission for the quarterback of a team that has won 28 of its last 35 games and considers itself to be among the NFL’s elite. Even if his Pittsburgh Steelers play as well as possible in Sunday’s AFC divisional playoff game, Roethlisberger suggested Wednesday, they won’t win if the Indianapolis Colts play equally as well. “This team is an unbelievable football team,” Roethlisberger said of the Colts, who won their first 13 games before dropping two of their final three. “They’re as good as it gets in the NFL. It’s going to take our A-plus game to go out and beat their B-minus game.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita The Steelers, accustomed to being a favorite and owning homefield advantage only to falter in the AFC title game, clearly seem to be reveling in this new they-can’t-win mode. “I think it’s a really good assessment,” All-Pro guard Alan Faneca said of Roethlisberger’s remarks. “They’ve shown all season what they can do offensively and defensively and how well they can do it on both sides of the ball, that it takes a great effort just to play on their level.” No player would say he’s glad to be returning to the noisy din of the RCA Dome, where the Steelers were visibly rattled and unnerved during a 26-7 Monday night loss on Nov. 28. But returning to the road, where the Steelers are 14-3 the last two seasons, hasn’t created any ominous air of defeat. HOF finalists center_img Troy Aikman and the late Reggie White were among the 15 finalists announced Wednesday for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. They joined Thurman Thomas and Warren Moon as finalists in their first year of eligibility. Results of the vote will be announced Feb. 4. Aikman quarterbacked Dallas to three Super Bowl titles between the 1992-1995 seasons. “If I were to be selected for induction, it would be the most meaningful individual achievement of my athletic career,” Aikman said. “It’s not something that I choose to spend a lot of time talking about, because I think that kind of talk is unfair to those men who have already earned their place in the Hall of Fame.” White, who died on Dec. 26, 2004, was one of the NFL’s dominant defensive linemen through the 1980s and ’90s. Thomas was a star running back on the Buffalo team that won four consecutive AFC titles from 1990-93. Moon threw for nearly 50,000 yards in the NFL after starting his career in the Canadian Football League. Brees to stay Drew Brees let the secret slip the San Diego Chargers would like to sign him to a long-term deal. Brees was discussing his shoulder surgery and rehab during a conference call with San Diego reporters when he was asked if the team had told him anything about his future. “They want to pursue me long-term,” Brees said from Birmingham, Ala. “I know that’s something that for the next few months everybody’s going to be working on. I know they want me long-term and I want to be here long-term.” “We are going to try to long-term him,” GM A.J. Smith said. Saints in Superdome NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue expects the New Orleans Saints to play all of their home games at the Superdome next season. Tagliabue also sought to reassure the community during a visit to the city Wednesday that the NFL is not moving the Saints back for a single season to make the league appear sympathetic to victims of Hurricane Katrina. The commissioner said it was clear to him that Saints owner Tom Benson plans to remain in New Orleans beyond 2006. He added that the NFL was even beginning discussions with local leaders about when New Orleans might be ready to host its next Super Bowl, which would be the city’s 10th. Palmer on mend Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer had surgery on knee ligaments torn during last weekend’s playoff loss to Pittsburgh and is expected to be ready for the start of the 2006 season. The operation was Tuesday in Houston, and he will begin rehabilitation this week in California, the team said Wednesday. Coaching updates The Green Bay Packers and 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McCarthy were nearing a deal to make him their next coach late Wednesday, a person involved in the negotiations said. The deal to hire McCarthy, the Packers’ quarterbacks coach in 1999, should be announced today. Oakland will interview its first candidate to replace fired coach Norv Turner when it meets with Chiefs offensive coordinator Al Saunders today. Cleveland offensive coordinator Maurice Carthon wrapped up formal interviews with New Orleans. He also has been mentioned as a candidate for the head coaching jobs at Detroit and Green Bay. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
