Policies on Class Attendance and Academic Loads

  1. Class Attendance
    1. No student can absent himself from a large number of classes without significantly losing from the learning opportunity available to him.
    2. It will be recognized that absences for any reason, excused or unexcused, may jeopardize the class standing and grade of the student.
    3. When the absences incurred by a student becomes equivalent to 20% of the total number of hours required for the course, and when such absences are incurred before mid-term examination and the class standing is passing and the Department Head decides that the absence is due to valid reasons, he shall be dropped from the course without a grade. However, when such 20% absence is incurred after the mid-term examination and the class standing is failing, then the student shall get failing grade.
    4. Late registration shall be considered as absence from class.
    5. Excuse slips for absences shall be obtained from the Registrarís Office upon the studentís return. Excuses shall be for the class hours missed only. Class work covered during the studentís absence can be made up by him within a reasonable period to the satisfaction of the instructor concerned.
    6. After the first 9 weeks of a semester, courses dropped will be recorded as failures, unless the student is forced to drop because of circumstances beyond his control.
    7. Failure due to lack of attendance is recorded as (FA) and is given no honor points.
