Punctuality in every lecture is expected of students and is the hallmark of a hospitality professional. Students must be present in their respective classrooms before commencement of a lecture. A first bell is meant to serve as an alert to students to proceed to their lecture room/practical lab. By or before the second bell, all students must be in their respective classrooms/practical labs or else they may be refused entry to the lecture/practical and shall be marked absent for the relevant lecture hours. These warning bells are only sounded before the commencement of college each morning and prior to the post lunch afternoon session
Absence from college or college activities without pre-sanctioned leave (as per due procedure) is considered, as a breach of discipline. Unauthorized leave is liable for monetary fines. As per general leave policy, no leave will be granted except in case of illness or crisis. Permission must be obtained from the Principal or other assigned staff member who will review the application of leave and make a decision based on the past records of the individual and present exigency
Absence due to ill health must be informed to the designated person (for notification) before 10 am on the first day of such illness. Such information may be telephonically communicated by the student or his/her parent/guardian. In case of sickness/illness extending to more than one day, the student must keep the institute informed from time to time. During such absence, students are advised to keep abreast of academic progress in the college through their friends. On recommencing, an authentic medical certificate endorsed by a competent doctor must be submitted for the record if such medical leave is three days or more.
No student may leave the Institute premises during working hours without written permission/gate pass from the Principal or other assigned staff member. Breach of this rule is liable to disciplinary action.
42A The institute implements a Student Leave Card system wherein all leave availed by students (pre or post sanctioned) is recorded. Students are requested to understand the requirements of this system and are required to assume the responsibility of filling and maintaining their own leave card completely and in a timely manner.
