The open-book exams and assignments have to be submitted to the AIDE Office for academic evaluation and grading. Upon submission of all required exams and homework, the student shall be required to be physically present to take his proctored final examination inside the school premises for each course so enrolled. Grades are then computed on the basis of final examinations and other submitted requirements. The grading system follows the CHED standard, which requires a passing grade of 75% or higher for every academic course.Official Bulletin of Information, Asian Institute for Distance Education, 2006.]

Once a student passes all requirements, including final exams, for all academic courses required in a degree program, a CHED-recognized diploma and transcript of records can be awarded.
