VI. Attendance regulations and makeup policy
A. Attendance Regulations
Students are held responsible for all the material presented in the classroom, even during their absence. Makeup work and exams, if any, will be according to the rules spelled out in the course syllabus. In any semester, or term, students can miss no more than the equivalent of five weeks of instruction, in any course, and still receive credit for that course. However, instructors have the right to impose specific attendance regulations in their courses, provided that the above-stated limit of absences is not exceeded, and the minimum number of absences allowed is no fewer than the equivalent of two weeks of classroom instruction, after the Drop and Add period.
Such specific attendance regulations should be mentioned in the syllabi. Instructors are to inform their Departments/Divisions, and the Guidance Office, of any prolonged unexplained absence. The number of absences in Summer modules is prorated.
Students who exceed the allowed number of absences must withdraw from the course; otherwise, the course grade will be recorded as “F” (NP).
In highly exceptional cases, students may be given permission by the Academic School Councils to continue in the course.
B. Make-up Policy
All lost sessions are to be made up. When the number of lost days (resulting from suspension of classes, for any reason) in a regular semester add up to 10, they are to be made up as follows:
- Three days, to be made up according to a schedule set at the discretion of each Faculty member.
- Seven days, to be scheduled by a decision of the University Planning Council, in consultation with the Faculty.
The 10 day period is seen as the period beyond which no makeup can be considered, and credit loss becomes inevitable. Alternately, the semester may be extended, and students may have to bear any additional expenses resulting from such an extension.
C. Class Time
If the instructor is late to class, students are required to wait 15 minutes before leaving.
