University and College rules require REGULAR ATTENDANCE for both theory and practical hours. Attendance is noted for each period at the commencement of the class.
A student who is not in the class when attendance is taken shall be marked absent. If a student absents oneself even for one hour, (s)he shall lose attendance for that entire session.
For attending pre-planned events and programmes, prior permission for leave needs to be taken. In case of emergency situations of illness, etc., the parent / guardian / warden of the hostel has to inform of the absence to the faculty in-charge over telephone by 9:00 AM.
Only the Leave application format available in the College Office shall be used for applying for leave. The leave application signed by the student and one’s parent / guardian / warden of the hostel should be submitted in advance or on the first day of his / her return to the College after the leave to the faculty in-charge. The student has to explain the reason for absence to the faculty in-charge and then take the leave application for approval of the Head of the Department / Principal and submit the same to the faculty in-charge. No student is allowed to attend class without getting the leave approved. In case of absence on medical reasons, the student should produce a medical certificate from a registered medical practitioner.
The students must look at the absentee list put up on the College notice board every day; if anyone is marked absent by mistake, then (s)he should approach for rectification by obtaining a correction slip issued by the concerned faculty and countersigned by the Head of the Department.
Periodic intimation will be given to the parent / guardian of the student for information and suitable action. The attendance of every student will be summed up at the end of each semester.
No student is allowed to take leave during Tests or Assignments or exempted from them.
Fee concession holders and scholarship holders should have minimum 90% attendance as per Government Order.
To appear for the University Semester Examinations, the University rules require a minimum of 75% attendance.
