Policy and procedure for attendance at midterm and final examinations are presented in “Educational Regulation for International Students”. For specific policies and procedures regarding attendance during clinical education
Policy and Procedure Summary:
Full and punctual attendance at all lectures, laboratories, seminars and other scheduled components of the academic program is a requirement unless absence or punctuality is unavoidably caused by illness, , compassionate reasons or has received prior permission (i.e. attendance at a professional conference, medical appointment or significant event that cannot be altered).
When instructors observe consistently poor punctuality and lack of attendance that has not been reported or is excessive, they will notify the student of the concern, and refer the concern to the Educational Officer. Students are expected to include this performance issue in their self-evaluation of professional behaviors document and indicate how they will be addressing the concern. The Educational Officer will discuss with the student and a note regarding the discussion will be placed on the student’s file.
Note 2: If the number absences exceed the determined number in Article 23 but the educational council of university’s campus considers them excused, that course will be dropped. In this situation following “the minimum 12 units” for each semester will not be obligatory but that very semester will be considered as a whole semester in the educational history of the student.
Article 24) Unexcused absences in examination of each course or section will be considered as zero and excused absences will be a cause for that course or section to be dropped. Determining the genuineness of excused absences in the final examinations will be upon the educational council of the university.
