When changing status from high school student to university student, there are two things that must be taken into account:
- The first problem is adjusting from studying at the high school level to the university level. If you fail any exams in high school, you still have the opportunity to retake the exam until you pass. Studying in the university, on the other hand, if the scores are not in the passing criteria of the course you’ve attended, that means you fail in the course. Being failed in a course may bring you one extra year to complete the study. However, if you fail in too many subjects, your student status will be automatically invalid.
- The second problem is adjusting the knowledge base in the basics of mathematics and English.
Therefore, students should not be negligent in their studies, aware of their duties, and have responsibilities for themselves including organizing appropriate time management for both studies and activities.
Recommendation: if the score is below average (Mean value), but not too low, you should try to fight till the end of the semester and intend to do more than what you have done and you will have a chance to pass. However, if you can't really do it, you should drop that subject. The dropping process must be completed approximately 2 weeks before the final exam date.
The opening of courses in various subjects of the faculty depends on the study plan of each department. Details are in the student handbook, which means some subjects will not be available in some semesters. Therefore, the students with an F or have dropped, may not be able to register for that course in the desired semester. The student must wait to register in the next academic year according to the teaching plan of the Faculty.
When entering university, what many people need to know is the grading system. From using 0 to 4, change to A, B+, B, C+, C, D+, D, and F. The word “Pro” stands for “Probation” and “Tire” stands for “Retire” which means termination of student status. There are many causes, but the most popular one is retirement from academics by having a cumulative GPA less than 1.75 (for other reasons, students can study from Burapha University regulations, concerning bachelor's degree studies, B.E. 2555, article 30). The word “Probation” is mean a state of waiting and can be divided into two types:
- High Pro is mean the cumulative GPA is lower than 2.00 but greater than or equal to 1.80. If the student is addicted to the “High Pro” for more than 4 semesters, and if the cumulative GPA of the 5th semester is inevitable 1.80-2.00 the student can be retired as well.
- Low Pro is mean the cumulative GPA is less than 1.80 but more than 1.75. If the student is addicted to the “Low Pro” for more than 2 semesters, and if the cumulative GPA of the 3rd semester is inevitable 1.75-1.79 the student can be retired as well.
We mention this case, we want students not to be careless because studying at the university level is much more difficult than at the high school level. Sometimes students may realize that we should be diligent.
(Retirement count for first-year students, when students have completed 1 academic year and have a cumulative grade point average of 1.75, they will be retired.)
Honors are those who study until graduation and never got D+, D or F in any subject and have a minimum GPA of 3.25. Honors are divided into 2 types:
- Bachelor's degree with 2nd class honor must have completed a 4-year course with a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher.
- Bachelor's degree with first-class honor must complete a 4-year course with a cumulative GPA of 3.60 or higher.
Students can read more details from Burapha University regulations on bachelor's degree, 2012
Students can change the type of student from a Part-time undergraduate to a Full-time undergraduate by students must take a course that is not a continuing course and complete each course and pass the examination according to the bachelor's degree program of the faculty for not less than 30 credits with a cumulative GPA of not less than 2.75, and have studied core subjects or core subjects of the Faculty or the field of study as prescribed by the faculty or department.
For details, please contact the academics of the faculty or the chair of the department (students can read more from Burapha University's announcement regarding the change of undergraduate student types in the same field of study, 2013).
Students enrolled in a four-year course may request to transfer faculty after studying in the same faculty for at least two semesters, excluding semesters spent on leave or suspended from university, and if they have never been approved to transfer faculty before. Students can read more from Burapha University regulations on Bachelor's degree, 2012, and Burapha University regulations regarding the transfer of education in the faculty that students want to transfer to.
Students enrolled in a four-year course may request to change the department within the faculty only once. Changing department is with the approval of the head of the department or the chair of the relevant disciplines and approved by the Dean, then need the Dean to notify the Registrar (you can read more details from Burapha University regulations on bachelor's degre, 2012).
- The university may consider transferring credits according to the announcement of the university (students can read more detail from Burapha University regulations on the transfer of bachelor's degree, 2009)

It is recommended that the students should spend enough time studying, reading, and reviewing. Do not be shy, or afraid to ask the instructor or believe that your anxiety negatively affects your classmates until it is too late. Most importantly, gathering tutoring groups is always a good idea to think of than reading alone.
Basically, it depends on how much effort the students put into it. The way we see that "this subject is difficult" is completely different between distinguished students.
– Students can submit and receive documents to Mr. Kornsahanan Torpongpan (P’ Keng), Office of Education Management, Room IF-210, 2th Floor, Faculty of informatics Building.
- Before submitting documents, please complete them correctly and sign.

– When it comes to adding and reducing courses, according to the academic calendar of the university, students are able to register or withdraw courses online at http://reg.buu.ac.th/ and then wait for approval from the lecturer, advisors, and dean. The students can easily check the system whether or not the registration or withdrawal has been approved.
– In the case of disapproval, students must write a general application form RE-01 to add courses as a late request by specifying the reason “Ask to register xxxxxx course” and have the lecturer sign the document, then have the advisor and the dean sign.

– If it is a course of the Faculty of Informatics, the students must contact the lecturer of the study group to request for the group expansion. If the lecturer approves by signing the petition form, the students then notify the Educator to expand the study group and reserve additional seats in the system. Finally, the students are able to register for the courses in the registration system (http://reg.buu.ac.th) within the specified date and time.
– If it is a course outside the Faculty of Informatics and open to the students of the Faculty of Informatics, the students must contact the lecturer of the study group to request for group expansion. If the lecturer approves by signing the petition form, the students then notify the Educator of the Faculty of Informatics to expand the study group and reserve seats in the system. Finally, the students are able to register for the courses in the registration system (http://reg.buu.ac.th) within the specified date and time.
– If it is a course outside the Faculty of Informatics and open to students outside the Faculty of Informatics, the students must contact the lecturer of the study group to request for group expansion. If the lecturer approves by signing the petition form, the students then need to notify the Educator of the Faculty who provides the course, to expand the study group and reserve seats in the system Finally, the students are able to register for the courses in the registration system (http://reg.buu.ac.th) within the specified date and time.
In the event that students participate in any activities or are representatives of participating in various events, have the event administrators that the students are going to attend write a letter to the course lecturer, requesting a leave of absence, the students then make a copy for their friends to submit to the next course lecturers. On the other hand, if it is a leave of absence due to personal business, it is recommended that students write a leave letter with the signature and phone number of the parents and send it before the day of the leaves and ask the classmates to submit it on the date of the class of each course. (In the case of some subjects in which a leave letter is available, the students download the form at the Student Affairs website. http://insa.buu.ac.th)
In case of having an F on any subjects that the students have taken, the students must once again register for the course in order to fix the grade. There is a condition in case the students receive an F in compulsory courses, the students must register for that course again until achieving an A, B+, B, C+, C, D+, D, or S. On the other hand, if the students have an F in an optional course, the students are allowed to register for another course instead and the course must be in the same category (Read more at Burapha University regulations on bachelor's degree, issued in 2012)
Each course may use a group-based or criteria-based assessment method. Therefore, in the midterm exam, if the students get 25/60, it may not mean that the student has not passed. Depending on the assessment method in each course. If it is group-based, please check the average score of the entire group. For example, if the average score is 22.5, that means the student's score of 25 is in the average zone of the entire class, but if it's a criteria-based measure considering F as the score below 50%, it means that the student's score of 25 is actually below 50% (30/60) of that exam. Students are able to use this information to help decide whether to continue attending the course or withdraw in case the score is really low and not expecting to be able to score better at the end of the semester.
There are 8 levels of scoring, A, B+, B, C+, C, D+, D, F, and I (Incomplete, means that the work is not complete. Please contact the lecturer immediately!!!!) and W (Withdrawn, means the withdrawal of the course during the period specified by the university and the credit will not be refunded). For other grades, Au (Audit) is registered for courses without credits ). S (Satisfactory) is passing the criterion. U (Unsatisfactory) is not passing the criterion. Scorings that are not graded and may be used in some subjects at the master's or doctoral degree, the students must study the Burapha University Regulations on bachelor's degree issued 2012, Term 18 and 19 in detail. If the students have any further questions, please inquire with the educator or the advisors.
