8. Admission to MS and PhD programs at CUI will adhere to existing criteria, with relevance of prior degrees being crucial. If deemed necessary, additional courses may be required to rectify deficiencies. Approval for admission within the CUI System is contingent upon the relevance of the previous degree as per Notification No: CUI-Reg/Notif-458/23/493, dated February 28, 2023, stating that the decision made by the Board of Advanced Studies and Research (BASAR) during its meeting on November 30, 2022, stipulated that admission within the CUI System shall be contingent upon possession of a relevant prior degree. In instances where doubts regarding the relevance of a prior degree arise, the determination of relevance thereof shall be made by the respective Dean irrespective of title of the prior degree, based on recommendations put forth by the respective Campus Admission Committee, HoD, and Chairperson, on a case-by-case basis as required. The decision rendered by the Dean in such cases shall be documented within the student's personal file for record-keeping and reference purposes.The additional GRE-Subject test for MS and PhD programs won't be mandatory for such candidates.

9. Furthermore, if the Dean determines that the candidate does not possess the necessary relevant degree, the candidate shall be admitted under the Interdisciplinary category . Additionally, the candidate must undertake the additional GRE-Subject test for MS and PhD programs as a mandatory requirement. Such candidates are required to fulfill all mandatory requirements outlined under the Interdisciplinary clauses. However, if the Dean by following the above procedure decides that the previous degree, irrespective of the title of the degree of the candidate does not fall under the Interdisciplinary category, the candidate shall not be admitted at CUI System.

10. PhD students shall enroll for 09 to 12 credit hours per semester for coursework,with flexibility granted in exceptional cases such as force majeure incidents including inevitable accident,unavoidable casualty, vis major. type of calamity, cataclysm, catastrophe, disaster, tragedy. an event resulting in great loss and misfortune. The Dean may adjust credit hour requirements based on recommendations from the DAC, HoD, and Chairperson. Following coursework, students must register exclusively for a thesis of 06 credit hours each subsequent semester to ensure continuous enrollment throughout their study period.

11. During its 38th meeting, the Academic Council approved the Common Policies, Procedures, and Template of Scheme of Studies for MS and PhD Programs at CUI, aligned with the Higher Education Commission (HEC) Graduate Education Policy (GEP) 2023, with the exception of the above-mentioned paragraphs.
