B. Predicate of Graduates

Judicium is conducted after students complete all academic and administration requirements. The decision of whether a student has completed all requirements and can join the judicium is made in a pre-judicium meeting. The attendance at judicium is compulsory.

According to UB Guideline Book of Education 2015/2016, the student who has been declared PASS in the pre-judicium meeting gets a predicate of graduation as follow:

Pass with a cum laude predicate: if the student has a GPA of > 3.75 to 4.00 with no grade below B in any course, accomplishes the study in four semesters at maximum, has grade “A” for thesis, and has published thesis-related article(s) in more than one accredited national journals or one indexed international journal.

Pass with a very satisfactory predicate: if the student has a GPA of > 3.75 to 4.00 but does not meet the other criteria mentioned in “cum laude” predicate, or if the student has a GPA of > 3.50 to 3.75 and has published the thesis-related article in one accredited national journal or one indexed international journal.

Pass with a satisfactory predicate: if the student has a GPA of > 3.00 to 3.50 and has published the thesis-related article in one accredited national journal or one indexed international journal.
