Leave Policy

Students should not miss classes except for valid reasons, such as illness, accidents, or participation in officially approved Step activities. When students are absent from classes, they must inform their coordinators of the reason for the absence. It should be in the notice of all the teachers should know that a particular student is on leave. It remains the responsibility of the student to arrange with instructors to make up for any academic work missed.

For requests of leave exceeding SEVEN DAYS (to a maximum of 15 days), the parent/guardian must schedule a meeting with the department coordinator before submission of such application.

Students who wish to take leave must submit a leave application in writing duly countersigned by their guardian and Department Coordinator to the institute; at least two days before the due date on which they wish to proceed on leave, except in case of emergency. In case of medical leave, students should attach a medical certificate. Medical leave requests for over five days to a maximum of thirty days are acceptable only if supported by the Medical Certificate issued by a certified Medical Officer. The student will automatically be dropped from the semester if the medical leave exceeds thirty days.

A process of readmission is applied in case the leave exceeds thirty days.
