A. There are no excused absences. According to the rules of the Commission on Higher Education, every student is required to attend no less than 80% of all class periods in a given subject to earn the corresponding units. Twenty percent of the periods are deemed more than sufficient to take care of emergencies such as illness or death in the family, and similar circumstances.
B. Students are required to attend class punctually and regularly. A student who absents himself/herself due to illness must submit a physician’s certification of his illness, or if absent for some reasons, he must present an excuse letter from his parents or guardian. Any student who accumulates more than the maximum number of absences tolerated in a given subject disqualifies himself from earning any unit of it, and causes himself to be dropped automatically from the class with a final mark of F (Failure).
