Students are expected to attend all meetings of all classes (including lectures, seminars, and laboratories) in which they are enrolled.
Academic events sponsored by TIA under supervision of faculty advisors include, but are not limited to: theatre/dance and musical performances, debate, mock trial, conference attendance. Because such events are recognized as integral to the educational experience, the appropriate coordinate will provide official notification of student participation in these activities. Faculty members will honor notification from the TIA authority that a student is to be excused for participation in a TIA-sponsored event. All other absences will not be officially announced by the authority, but may be excused at the discretion of faculty. Examples include, but are not limited to, class field trips, illness, funerals, and special family functions like marriage ceremony. Misrepresenting the reason for class absences to a professor is a violation of the TIA’s honor code.
A student will be held responsible for all work of a class or laboratory missed during any absence.
Attendance deficit in some cases may attract additional classes for extended hours at the discretion of TIA student affairs in-charge/Exam controller/Faculty-in charge.
Note: Students enrolled in TIA courses must attend at least 80 percent of the class meetings–regardless of the reasons for absence–to be eligible to appear for the end semester examination.
