- As part of the meeting process, the student will perform a review with the various departments: Library, Operations & Purchasing Department, Dean of Students, and the Information Systems Department regarding the absence of obligations. From this stage forward, services cannot be received from the College, including the taking out of books and the use of electronic mail. It is important to return the student card to the Operations & Purchasing Department as part of this specified process.

- For the purpose of calculating the grade point average for the degree, courses that the student has taken will be taken into consideration, including courses that were studied beyond that required in the study program, unless the student has requested that excess courses be determined that will not be included in the calculation of the grade point average.
- The final grade for the degree will be calculated at the level of precision of hundredths of points.
- A grade cannot be improved after receiving the Certificate of Eligibility for the degree.
