Each student is expected to attend regularly and punctually all classes in which he/she is enrolled. Students are expected to participate fully in the class. Absence of more than one day of an intensive course would require the course to be retaken.
When a student is unable to attend class due to reasons beyond his/her control (e.g. illness, accident), the school should be notified immediately as to the reason for his absence and the probable length of the absence. If the student notifies the school orally, he/she must provide a written statement upon return or within one week.
A leave of absence from classes is possible in individual, justified, exceptional cases. The recognized reasons for a leave of absence are important personal reasons (e.g. death in the immediate family; extreme illness in the student’s household).
