•Grade Assessment
Attendance and Reports
The “Absent” grade is reserved for students who withdraw by the deadline designated by the University. Class
attendance is required and absentee must have a valid reason. Unless withdrawal is declared, the “Fail” grade will
be given, when a student misses lectures more than three times. It will be also given, when he or she misses
submission of reports more than three times.
