Continuation in the program

For continuation in the program a minimum required cumulative CGPA must be maintained regardless of the number of the credit hours completed. Once on probation, the student may not be allowed to register for any new course. Rather the courses with lowest grade should be repeated to achieve clear standing within two semesters. While on academic probation, the student must refer to the Program Coordinators or the Dean office to ensure his/her satisfactory progress.
Students with a CGPA below the minimum required level must consider themselves on probation. A student will not receive an official notification of probation from the institute.

Repeating Courses:

A course with "F" Grade may be repeated twice to obtain a passing Grade. In a special case the Dean could allow a third chance.

A course with a "C" and "D" Grade may be repeated to improve the grade. Any number of courses could be repeated for such grade improvement.

Course Registration:

Every student must enroll during the registration week and must take minimum 2 courses (6 Cr. Hours) during a semester, unless otherwise recommended by coordinators and approved by the Dean. Registration is valid only if the dues are paid within the specified time.

Responsibility For Information:

Providing correct information to the coordinators for the purpose of registration is  a student's individual responsibility. Registration made on the basis of wrong information provided by the student would be cancelled and the student would be subject to disciplinary action which may tantamount to suspension or expusion from(IMS) depending on the gravity of the offence.

Late Registration:

The Dean may allow late registration in the weeks following the registration period. For late registration a student will be liable to pay late registration fee at 10% of the total  tuition fee. In the first week after the regular registration period, a 20% surcharge will be levied till the start of the next semester.

Course Prerequisites:

Enrollment in certain courses cannot be allowed until the course prerequisite requirements are met. It is students' responsibility to make sure that they satisfy the prerequisite requirements of each course. A student enrolling in a given course without meeting the prerequisites may be denied credit for the course.

Course Add-Drop Policy:

Registration during the official registration period is final and cannot be changed when the semester starts, except for the students, who fail a course(s) in the preceding semester. A student must reappear in a failed course on the very next offering.

No student would be allowed to drop the course with a "W" after the twelfth week of the semester.


Course Cancellation/Change

During the semester, the IMS reserves the right to cancel any course announced at the time of registration.In case a course is full or is cancelled otherwise, administration reserves the right to relocate any number of students to alternative courses.

Changes in Program Requirement:

Academic Honesty and Student’s Conduct:

Academic integrity is a major part of the foundation of any institution of higher learning. Plagiarism and cheating are among the most common form of academic dishonesty.

In Addition:
  • Smoking is not allowed inside the campus.
  • Students are expected to behave in a civilized manner - Rowdy behavior,hooliganism and vandalism may lead serious punishment.
  • Dress Code should be followed strictly by boys as well as girls (Shalwar, Kameez and Dopatta for girls)
  • Our traditional culture demands proper respect for the teachers in and outside the classroom.Good students know what it means, and one does not have to have a high IQ for that.

It is hoped that students will not violate the institution's rules. The management has no interest, unless compelled, in taking measures such as heavy fine, or even their expulsion from IMS (Pak-AIMS). Unusual observations about students that can be of possible interest to their parents, may also be reported to their parents for information.
