Study attendance is obligatory throughout the academic year, as well as participation in the written and oral exams or any other kind of tests applied by the College.
The term “study attendance” includes following lectures and lessons, participating in practical work carried out in the laboratories/workshops of each course of study, seminars, exhibitions and demonstrations, educational visits, being present in work places during the standard industrial training weeks each academic year, as well as participating in all the activities prescribed in the Programme of each course or by the teaching staff, including festive events and official parades.
Students are expected to arrive at the College at least 10 minutes before the start of the first lesson. A student being late for class for any period of over 5 minutes after the commencement of the lesson shall not be admitted to the classroom. He would be permitted to enter the classroom for the next lesson. In such a case his/her absence during the lesson for which he/she was late may be considered inexcusable.
CONSEQUENCES OF INADEQUATE ATTENDANCE
Absences are distinguished into justified and unjustified. Justified absences are those supported by adequate documentation acceptable to the College (e.g. extenuating circumstances, illness etc) and unjustified absences are those that are not supported by any documentation or the excuse offered is not admissible, as being unreasonable or at first sight untrue.
Absences on account of illness must be supported by corresponding medical certificates. Absences for reasons of illness of up to five non-consecutive days only may be justified in writing bearing the signature of the student.
A student who accumulates unjustified hourly absences exceeding 20% of potential teaching periods during the year is excluded from the final exams.
During their studies at the College, students must display higher ethos and impeccable behavior in their relations with the Administration, the Management, the Teaching, the Clerical and auxiliary personnel of the College, as well as in their relations with their fellow students.
A student whose behaviour entails lack of respect towards or is offending to anyone’s personality or is indecent or dishonest or whose conduct towards any member of the staff or other student is utterly socially unacceptable is referred by decision of the Management to appear before the Disciplinary Committee. The student is entitled to know beforehand the charges against him and is given reasonable time to prepare his apology.
The Principal of the College has the discretionary power to inform the student’s family about the student’s offence and the penalty imposed on the student, if he deems that this information will ultimately be beneficial to the improvement of the student’s current and future behaviour.
