9.3Attendance and AbsenteeismUCSI University regards class attendance highly and policies developed repeatedly emphasizethe importance of achieving 80% attendance for each course undertaken. Students who areunable to meet the 80% attendance will be issued with a Poor Attendance Report and willsubsequently be barred from sitting for the final examination by their lecturers. The barred listwill be submitted by a lecturer in week 11 for a long semester, and in week 6 for the shortsemester.Where courses consist of quizzes, tests and/or mid-term tests, you are required to ensureattendance in all assessments. At times, the marks of a missed component may be spread oradded to other components. Absenteeism is to be reported immediately to the lecturerconcerned for consideration for another assignment or a replacement test as deemed fit by theconcerned lecturer.Absenteeism may be acceptable on medical grounds and if supporting documents are presentedto the lecturer. Unlike absenteeism from final examination, the decision for absences inquizzes, tests and mid-term tests, and the remedial actions to be taken is entirely within thejurisdiction of the respective lecturers and/or Centres/Faculties/Institutes/Schools.Students who arrive late will be admitted to the class at thelecturer’s discretion. If admitted,the onus is on you to ensure that attendance is taken. Habitual offenders may be referred to theSDB for action. Also, students who are caught marking attendance on behalf of others will bothbe barred from the examination and/or referred to the SDB.10.Transcripts and Examination ResultsThe semester’s examination results are available to students and parents (viaIIS).
