Attendance Policy:

  • The students are required to attend the sessions regularly throughout the academic year (30 weeks) as per the department timetable. They need to be in class on time except when they get prior permission from the teacher. The maximum absence rate allowed for any lesson varies from a class to another depending on the number of hours per week.

  • A lesson of 2 hours per week: maximum absence %10 ( 4 hrs get first warning , 6 hrs get final warning , 7 hrs fail in this lesson for the whole year)

  • A lesson of hours per week: maximum absence %10 ( 6 hrs get first warning , 9 hrs get final warning , 10 hrs fail in this lesson for the whole year)

Recommendations for change:

  • A student who arrives late to a particular lesson for three times will be regarded absent for an hour in that lesson.

  • As for emergency cases ( e.g. first degree death) and sick leaves, if a student does not attend 45 regular attendance days throughout the academic year, he/she must postpone his study for the following year.

  • The teacher should be responsible for informing the department of the first and final warnings concerning absence of students and the teacher himself should write a letter to the head of department for taking further procedures in case of exceeding the maximum absence rate. The head of the department should approve the teachers’ report within a week as of the date of the report and send it to the dean for issuing the official letter in this respect.

  • In term papers and graduation research projects, plagiarism= taking parts of others’ ideas and writings as if they were students’ own, will lead to failure in the project and the student should re-write the project for the second time.(recommended)
