Ched warns schools on ‘no permit, no exam’ policy-A A +A
Friday, March 1, 2013
THE Commission on Higher Education (Ched) reminded all private schools on the “No Permit, No Exam” policy as students will take their final exams in March.
Under Memorandum Order 2 series of 2010, Ched appeals to Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) for flexibility of their implementation of the “No Permit, NO Exam Policy.”
Under Article 20, Section 99 of the Ched Manual of Regulations for Private Higher Education (Morphe), no HEI “shall deny final examinations to a student who has outstanding financial or property obligations, including unpaid tuition and other school fees corresponding to the school term.”
“However, the institution may withhold the final grades or may refuse re-enrollment of such student…provided, however that final grades are duly recorded and submitted to the Registrar together with the final grades of the rest of the students,” it said.
Ched also encouraged parents and others concerned to go to the nearest Ched regional office for questions and clarifications regarding the memorandum. (Abigail Chee Kee Malalis)
