Policies and Regulations
Justification of absence from an examination (mid-term, final, or deferred), a test, or late submission of assignments.
Absence from any examination or test, or late submission of assignments on medical grounds or due to exceptional personal circumstances, must be reported by submitting the online Declaration of Absence from an Evaluation form within five (5) working days of the examination date or the assignment deadline, except if extenuating circumstances prevent the student from doing so; these circumstances must be documented.
