REFERENCES OF DISCIPLINES

Single paragraph  The student will be allowed to substitute one of the disciplines in each area of concentration for ZOO 896 – Special Problems, whose analytical program must be approved by the coordinating committee of the program.

Art.15 – The evaluation system in the subject will be that of the concept note expressed by letter, obeying the following equivalence of relative income:
NOTES, CONCEPTS, SYMBOLS and PERCENTAGE PERFORMANCE

Great A De 90% a 100%
Good B De 75% a 89%
Regular C De 60% a 74%
Disapproved R
Unsatisfactory N Abaixo de 60%

Art.16 – Upon completion of the credits, the yield coefficient shall be calculated from the sum of the number of credits for each discipline, multiplied by the values 3, 2, 1 and 0, assigned to the concepts A, B, C and R, respectively, divided by the total number of credits of the respective disciplines.

§ 1º – For the calculation of the cumulative yield coefficient, the value shall be represented by one decimal place, the decimal place being rounded up to the nearest digit if the second decimal place equals or exceeds five (five) decimal places.
§ 2º – The final income coefficient is the result of the division of the sum of the points obtained by the sum of the credits of the courses studied in that period and to which concepts A, B, C or R have been applied.
Art.17 – Only the student will be awarded a diploma that, in accordance with the other requirements, obtains approval in all the disciplines included in his or her school record.

Art.18 – The student who obtains, at the end of the course, an accumulated income coefficient of less than 2.0 (two) will be disconnected from the program; obtain two concepts (non – satisfactory) concepts, consecutive or non – consecutive, in Research, and not complete all program requirements within the established time frame.

6. THE ORIENTATION

Art.19 – The didactic-pedagogical advice of the student will be exercised by the tutor, chosen by the Coordinating Committee among the teachers of the course, who will supervise the research to elaborate the dissertation work.
